“Tri Star has provided us with quality trained candidates for many years and the training they provide for both students and adults is invaluable for our company and the community. The area needs a pipeline of skilled labor and Tri Star has provided that for over 30 years for Auglaize and Mercer Counties. “We are proud to be part of the future growth of Tri Star and feel it is important to invest in that future.”

Jared Ebbing, Mercer County Economic Director:

“Companies like Pax Machine is what makes our local area so strong in manufacturing. They support the local schools and the future training opportunities for both students and adults.”

Tri Star Director Tim Buschur:

“Pax Machine has been a big supporter for many years, and to have them make this commitment to the new facility, is outstanding.  We are so appreciative of their donation and it will help make a great facility even better.”
