New manufacturing lab to combat worker shortages in Central Wisconsin

Wausau, Wis. (WAOW) – Northcentral Technical College launched their mobile Manufacturing Lab, with the help of the state of Wisconsin and the Department of Workforce Development.

The purpose of the lab is to provide advanced, customization training to businesses, and individuals in Central Wisconsin.

The features include state of the art technology, which will allow workers and other individuals to be more efficient and up to date on the manufacturing workforce.

“As technology continues to change, we want to be there to help people make that change,” said NTC’S President Dr. Lori Weyers. “So that our companies can be globally competitive and keep Central Wisconsin strong.”

NTC provides training to about 400 manufacturers and around 21,000 workers in Central Wisconsin. The lab will also allow the college to travel with the new technology, serving other schools and people who are incarcerated.
