Wednesday, February 27th, 2019, marked the official grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new comprehensive Applied Sciences and Workforce Development Center at Isothermal Community College (ICC) in Spindale, North Carolina in the US.
Leadership from the Trelleborg Coated Systems facility in Rutherfordton, attended the event. Trelleborg has pledged a substantial, ten-year donation to sponsor the new center’s automation laboratory and student lounge, and ICC has named these after company.
Steve Brockman, General Manager of the Trelleborg facility in Rutherfordton, says: “Isothermal Community College is an integral part of our community. It is a privilege for Trelleborg to partner with the college to help prepare our students and workers for the technical challenges of the future.”
Trelleborg employs many ICC graduates and has collaborated with the college for over twenty years on professional training and continuing education programs. The company’s investment is one of many ways Trelleborg’s facility in Rutherfordton and Isothermal are partnering together to develop a stronger workforce.
Along with instructional space and advanced technologies, the Applied Sciences and Workforce Development Center will boast an innovative incubation space for new and existing local businesses.
