Sun Chemical, the world's largest producer of printing inks and pigments, is the newest company to partner with Orion International to create a Military Talent Program. With annual sales over $3.5 billion, Sun Chemical has over 8,000 employees supporting customers around the world and will be adding military veterans to this number through this partnership. Available positions include Printing Ink Technician, Inplant Supervisor, Regional Inplant, Operations Manager, and Sales Representative.
Sun Chemical announced the new program on Monday in a press release. The partnership, which became official after the two organizations began working together on a contingency basis in 2014 with impactful results, was instituted as “a way to give back to those that stood as the last line of defense for the country and as a way to find highly qualified job candidates.” Orion will provide a full-cycle Strategic Military Program that addresses all phases of the process, from candidate attraction and recruiting, through on-boarding, integration, and retention.
“The printing industry is a mature industry and we found ourselves in a place where we needed to recruit and develop the next generation of talent for Sun Chemical. We wondered if Orion’s network with the military could be the pipeline to help us build a bench,” said Jarred Carter, Vice President of Sales and Customer Technical Service, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “As we started attending Orion events, we found the kind of people we have been looking for to meet our present and future business needs—people with strong work ethic, discipline, and core foundational competencies. We’ve had twenty placements at Sun Chemical through this partnership this past year and they have brought great ideas that have energized our team while also making a strong impression on our customers.”
