Okuma partners with CPCC to train employees on machine tools

June 28, 2016 – Okuma America Corporation is partnering with Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) to provide customized machine tool training for Okuma employees. The program is funded through North Carolina’s NCWorks Customized Training Program and is implemented through the North Carolina Community College System.

Okuma recently expanded its mechanical repair and exchange service departments in Charlotte and is receiving $63,310 in CNC training from CPCC to train new hires and current employees. The training programs include leadership, process improvement, SolidWorks, computer operations, electrical assembly and wiring, and enterprise resource planning.

The training grant supports economic development efforts of the state of North Carolina by providing education, training and support services for eligible businesses, assisting them in their efforts to be productive and profitable within the state.

“This unique training program provides Okuma's current and future workforce with the skills necessary to be successful in their careers," said Brittany Russell, Okuma America, training program manager. 

“CPCC is delighted and honored to work with Okuma America as the company expands its operations in Mecklenburg County,” said Allison Bowers, CPCC director, economic recruitment. “The college, through our Corporate Learning Center, will work hard to deliver the customized training Okuma associates need now and in the future.”

Okuma and CPCC share a long standing relationship dating back to the early 1980s.
