Advanced Manufacturing Centers at HGTC
The Manufacturing industry is recognized as one of the driving forces behind economic recovery and is essential to ongoing economic prosperity, while individuals proficient in the areas of (advanced welding technology, machine tool/CNC, HVAC and mechatronics) are among the most sought after and highly paid workers in America!
Employers across South Carolina have expressed the difficulties in accessing a steady pipeline of these highly trained workers, and in response the industry demands, HGTC will be constructing two new 25,000 sq. ft. Advanced Manufacturing Centers over the next several years.
