Metal-Era Joins in Supporting the WCTC Integrated Manufacturing Center

Waukesha, WI, April 21, 2016 --( Metal-Era, Inc., the national leader in commercial engineered roof solutions, announces their support of the Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) expansion project with a monetary donation and community partnership.

The new Integrated Manufacturing Center will help develop skilled professionals by providing various advanced manufacturing training in such areas as mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, engineering, robotics and more. The addition of the new facility will double the amount of lab space, create flexible, automated work cells, and provide ample space for new equipment.

“Metal-Era is proud to be a partner with WCTC and the Waukesha business community with their expansion of the Integrated Manufacturing Center. We are in the same position as most manufacturers in this community where skilled labor is getting harder and harder to find,” says Tony Mallinger, CEO and President of Metal-Era. “This is not only a current problem, but expectations are that this will only get worse in the future if nothing is done about it. WCTC’s Integrated Manufacturing Center is a great first step to jump starting a solution to this problem and we are very happy it is in our backyard.”
