This week the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association (OMA) and Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow, LIFT, announced their Ohio-based partnership.
LIFT is a public-private partnership committed to advanced lightweight metal manufacturing technologies and implementing education and training initiatives to better prepare the manufacturing workforce.
Almost without exception, manufacturers with whom OMA interacts claim that finding adequate numbers of skilled workers is their number one issue.
By working with LIFT, and other organizations focused on addressing manufacturing workforce development, OMA executes its mission to protect and grow Ohio manufacturing.
Here is our press release and a Fact sheet: LIFT & state manufacturers’ associations partnership. We’ll keep members posted about specific opportunities created by the partnership.
