An amazing legacy of success and a long lasting-relationship with Cambrian College

This month, Cambrian College was proud to name Hard-Line Solutions as the recipient of this year’s Employer Award of Distinction. The award was presented at Cambrian’s annual Career Fair Conference, held February 4th at the college.

“Hard Line Solutions was chosen because of its outstanding commitment to the community and to Cambrian College, through its support of our programs, and our students,” says Renee Scott, Cambrian’s Director of Student Success.

The relationship between Cambrian and Hard-Line Solutions goes back decades.  Walter Siggelkow studied Electronics Engineering Technology at Cambrian College, graduating in 1991. Today, under his leadership, the company has grown to a multi-national operation with over 140 employees, servicing 30 plus countries.  Along with that, Walter’s team is also a strong partner and contributor to Cambrian’s success.

Through its Employer Award of Distinction, Cambrian is honouring Hard-Line’s active involvement in committees that guide college curriculum, accepting and training co-op students, and hiring Cambrian graduates. In no small way, Hard-Line Solutions is a company that is helping to attract talent and the skills that our region desperately needs.

“This is a great success story,” adds Cambrian President Bill Best. “It’s a tale of a student who goes from classroom to entrepreneur and on to forming and leading a critically acclaimed international mining company. All the while, Walter Siggelkow stayed true to his roots, helping Sudbury prosper and sharing his success with so many others.  The story of Walter and Hard-Line is just amazing.”

Congratulations again, from all the staff, faculty and team art Cambrian College to Walter, his son Ryan and the excellent team at Hard-Line Solutions. A true Sudbury success story and we’re excited for what the future holds.
