Manufacturing Performance Center(MPC) mission is to identify/produce top quality talent, measured by performance, through a blending of innovative approaches to hands-on education and workforce development to eliminate the gap between demand and supply.

The MPC is housed inside a 70-year- old manufacturing machine shop. That allows our operation to provide a true sense of the daily work and responsibilities of advanced manufacturing. MPC delivers hands-on training courses, operates a performance testing combines and acts as a employee solution source by offering employers both direct and temporary to permanent products.

MPC’s goal is to serve as a workforce intermediary bridging the connection of local employers that have a workforce need, and the workforce system of providers that have the interest of individuals to become gainfully employed. Our ability to act as the “front door” for employers, to access a variety of services through our partnerships with industry experts, trade associations, workforce boards and educational institutions.

Through MPC’s unique hands-on platform, our goal is to set our operation apart from all others in the same workforce development space. MPC staff posses an expert level of knowledge of both for profit and nonprofit intricacies of business. This experience positions MPC in the forefront, as the best option for small-large scale short-term assessment/training/hiring needs. MPC does not look to replace the work of organizations currently in the non-profit, staffing or education arena, but seeks to enhance their product offerings and fill the gaps in their service delivery. Empowering these groups with data directly from our employer partners increases their efficiencies to accurately understand the requirements, and the fine details of current position openings.

The MPC model also can be applied to current underemployed individuals and workers within the industry to gain in demand skills to propel them up into positions of more responsibility and wage compensation.
