Chatham-Kent’s own RS Technologies Inc., a composite utility pole manufacturer, is expanding production and adding a third shift.

As a result, the company is actively looking to hire new staff and is hosting a job fair on September 24th. The job fair will be located at the Municipal Centre in Tilbury and will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Located in the town of Tilbury, RS Technologies is the industry leader with its patent-protected composite utility pole.

“We have the best customers in the world, backed by the best staff in the world,” said Tracy McDonald, Human Resources Manager for RS Technologies Inc. “We are looking to bring more people on board that can really become part of the RS Technologies family.”

RS Technologies is looking to hire both general labourers and also skilled trades positions, including a Maintenance Millwright and Maintenance Electrician.

McDonald added, “Applicants need to know that they have an opportunity to join a team that is driving innovation through technology, expanding to meet growing demand, and is 100 percent focused on delivering the best customer experience.”

The poles produced by RS Technologies are used in transmission, distribution, and communication applications.

RS Technologies has over 400 customers globally and has installed over 20,000 poles in the field since 2003.

“This is an exciting time for RS Technologies and I am thrilled to be working closely with them to help support their growing business,” said Geoff Wright, Economic Development Officer for Chatham-Kent Economic Development Services. “In Economic Development we frequently talk about providing business retention and expansion services, and it usually goes on behind the scenes. This is a clear example of a business that has been supported and is growing in leaps and bounds.”

Previous manufacturing experience is preferred for the positions, but not required. Job fair applicants are encouraged to bring their resume as RS Technologies will be conducting on-site interviews. For more information on the job fair and RS Technologies, visit their website at or on Facebook at
