FCC NC in Laurel Hill will get $15,000 in training funds and Richmond Community College will provide the training at no cost, company officials said Friday.
The RCC training program works with industry that plan to expand or introduce new technology.
Customized Training Director Lee Eller and Workforce and Economic Development Vice President Steve Smith will coordinate classes that include safety and supervisory skills training.
“Anytime you can improve your workforce through training it is a good thing,” said FCC Training Manager Wayne Cromartie. “You can never have enough training and to have RCC help coordinate that training make it all the better.”
The plant has relied on RCC for training since it opened in 2001 and has employed RCC graduates in fields ranging from machining and accounting to mechanical engineering.
The plant, which manufactures clutches for Honda automobiles, ATVs, and motorcycles, qualifies for the services because they have expanded and are introducing new technology to the plant.
FCC employs about 135 people.
