In 2013, Intertech Plastics Inc. (Intertech) acquired Image Moldings and began molding complex disposable medical devices. As Intertech already played an important role in Colorado’s advanced manufacturing sector, the company was now faced with significant challenges in securing a skilled workforce that could lead the company forward.
To address their workforce needs, Intertech partnered with the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation’s (CIHAD) Work is Success Internship Program to access a pipeline of young adults to fill their paid summer internship roles.
