HSI Sensing Recognized with Partners for Progress Award

HSI Sensing (formerly Hermetic Switch), a Chickasha, Okla.-based designer and manufacturer of reed switches, proximity sensors, and other switch technologies, was awarded the 2010 Partners for Progress Award by the Canadian Valley Technology Center (CVTC). The award recognizes businesses and industries that have made outstanding contributions to the improvement, promotion, development, and progress of career and technology centers in Oklahoma.

CVTC nominated HIS as an outstanding partner due to its support in the progress of its Oklahoma technology center system during the 2009-2010 school year, when HSI participated in multiple training opportunities, business and industry training initiatives, and CVTC’s daytime programs.

“The company’s reputation is outstanding in product reliability, quality, special characteristics, and customer service,” said Angie Lewis, CVTC director of Business and Industry Services. “Their employees receive many months of on-the-job training to develop skills in electroplating, glass sealing, electrical testing, precision cutting, and welding operations.”

Lewis added that HIS employees have completed training in the areas of safety, leadership, strategic planning, and other programs. The employee-owned company is a partner for progress in training at the CVTC District workforce for the future. The partnership also has included many years of working together on economic development issues. CVTC said HSI is proactive in south-central Oklahoma, encouraging its employees to be active leaders in the community while, as a company, being an agent for economic development and growth in the area.

“We value our partnership with HSI Sensing and are pleased that we can work together to serve our local workforce in a variety of ways,” Lewis said. “Partnerships like this strengthen our communities and serve as the foundation for future growth and prosperity.”
