Gateway Opens Expanded IMET Center

RACINE, Wis., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gateway Technical College celebrated the grand opening of its expanded SC Johnson integrated Manufacturing and Engineering Technology (iMET) Center in Sturtevant, Wis., today. The region's first flexible manufacturing training center—Tarnowski Hall— includes training in computer numerical control (CNC) machining, welding, metal fabrication, automated manufacturing systems, and industrial robotics.

SC Johnson, a 127-year-old family-owned company in Racine, has a nearly 20-year partnership with Gateway and is a major contributor to the project. Over the past 10 months, SC Johnson has contributed $1.7 million to support Gateway programming, including the iMET Center expansion and programing, such as Gateway's high-impact manufacturing-related boot camp. 

"We are proud to support organizations like Gateway that are doing such good work within our community," said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. "Through their programming and hands-on learning approach, Gateway brings much needed, well-prepared graduates to the local workforce, strengthening the overall quality of life and economy of the area."

Johnson, who joined in the grand opening festivities, discussed Gateway's commitment to helping students reach their potential by creating opportunities to progress in the manufacturing field.  He said these efforts also help address the area's skills gap—the dichotomy of high, unmet demand for skilled workers by manufacturers during times of equally high unemployment. 

" Gateway Technical College values its partnership with SC Johnson to accelerate our efforts to close the employment skills gap in our region," said Dr. Bryan Albrecht, president and CEO of Gateway Technical College.

"The continued commitment to community demonstrated by the SC Johnson contribution is remarkable. We are excited about creating the region's first flexible manufacturing lab at the SC Johnson iMET Center and honored by SC Johnson's trust in Gateway's ability to deliver results to our communities and its employers."
