Three local companies receive grants
Manufacturing Skills grants provide funds for employers to increase the skill level of technical workers. The training curriculum, training provider, expected outcome, and performance measures are up to each company. Grant applications are accepted on a quarterly basis and are reviewed by a panel that includes professionals from local companies. These funds will be used to train employees in machining, quality management, mechanical and electrical maintenance, and other technical skills.
The 2nd Quarter 2010, grant recipients were as follows.
- Dealer’s Warehouse
- Rock-Tenn Company
- Sustainable Future, LLC
The applications for 3rd quarter grants will be uploaded to the TDC website by early March. Completed applications will be reviewed at the end of March.
