Revolution Iron Works, through holding company Accelevation in Springboro, is the WCCC December 2021 Valued Business Partner. Owners Michael and Shawn Rubiera hired for a summer 2021 internship three junior welders.
The Welding students, now seniors, Matt Trimble, Little Miami, Patrick Kincaid, Waynesville, and Elijah Reece, Franklin, spent their summer in paid internships at Accelevation, sharpening their skills and learning new skills to prepare for their careers and senior year at WCCC.
Owners Michael and Shawn Rubiera moved into their new facility on South Pioneer Blvd. in the spring, and said they had never worked with a school before. They consolidated three businesses from the Dayton area, and manufacture and sometimes install items for industry, such as parts for Honda, and door frames for a Google facility. They have CNC machining and welding areas in their company.
“It’s been a great experience, and we are very happy with the students and their performance,” Shawn Rubiera said. “We wanted to make this a good learning experience for them, and have had weekly check-ins, and began with an orientation.”
Michael Rubiera added, “And, we gave them real work to do. They jumped right in and wanted to learn, and we are happy to be a part of the learning process.”
Elijah Reese was hired back at Revolution Iron Works this fall for the school year. He is working in the welding area and said he is really enjoying his experience with the company. He plans his career in welding going forward and is gaining experience in the workforce.
