Construction for the $9.6 million Dana Advanced Manufacturing Training Center began in June 2019 and is scheduled to be completed by Fall Semester 2020.
The modern 59,000 square foot training center hosts relevant programming and training for students and community partners in advanced manufacturing, skilled trades and related fields. The center’s focus is to meet community labor needs and strengthen the economy by preparing students for rewarding careers available in northwest Ohio.
The center’s goals are to:
- Attract individuals to enter the industry sector of advanced manufacturing, skilled trades or related fields and foster increased partnership opportunities with the region’s workforce training needs.
- Fill the workforce jobs gap by producing an increased number of job-ready workers for employers in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
- Provide advanced training for current employers and provide the skilled labor workforce needed to attract new business and industry to the region.
Located on the main entrance to the Toledo-area Campus adjacent to the Welding Design Center, the new facility is accessible from I-75 and the I-80/I-90 Ohio Turnpike.
