J/E Bearing & In-House Solutions Mastercam Donation puts CNC Machining in Local Classrooms

Feb 20, 2015 -- J/E Bearing and Machine Ltd. Mastercam  has donated its purchase of eight seats of Mastercam software to East Elgin Secondary School in Aylmer, Ontario. The Tillsonburg, ON-company is committed to investing in the future of manufacturing by putting the right tools into the hands of today’s students.

“One of our goals at J/E is definitely to get youth involved and show them how great a career in machining and manufacturing can be,” said Derek Rozon, Plant Manager at J/E Bearing and Machine.

JE Bearing & Machine LTD Founded in 1983, J/E Bearing and Machine is a distributor of bearings and power transmission components. Today, the ISO 9001 company has evolved into a full service machine shop that also supplies CNC machining, general machining, and maintenance repair and overhaul. J/E purchased the software from In-House Solutions, the OEM supplier of Mastercam in Canada, who contributed by discounting the Software. Mastercam is considered the world’s leading CAD/CAM software, and provides a powerful set of industry-standard toolpaths and teaching aids to educational institutions worldwide, giving the students more options when they graduate.

Mastercam Donation to local schoolManufacturing is one of the country’s most important business sectors, and workers skilled in trades and technologies play a crucial role in Canada’s future economic stability. According to a report by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CMC), growth plans for more than 30 percent of Canadian companies are being impacted by current labour shortages. Investing in education and training programs is just one of several recommendations in the CMC’s Manufacturing our Future action plan.

“Encouraging future generations to explore careers in skilled trades and STEM fields is the key to competing globally,” said Kevin Hesch, International Sales Manager at In-House Solutions “Providing students with the tools they need to learn and succeed in those areas is the first step.”


J/E Bearing & Machine and In-House Solutions are challenging other companies to support the future of manufacturing by investing in education in their communities. Making a donation to local schools will help educators encourage careers in skilled trades and provide the latest in technology and teaching aids.
