Hamill Manufacturing is using apprenticeship programs to rebuild the manufacturing workforce.Learn More
For years, Hamill has been a leader in Southwestern Pennsylvania’s workforce development initiatives and our CEO, Jeff Kelly, has been instrumental in calling attention to the need for a skilled workforce.
We're not just identifying the problem, we're working diligently to ensure the pipeline of talent is full for years to come. In addition to our ongoing efforts to support internships and enhance the machinist apprenticeship program, Hamill introduced BotsIQ to Pennsylvania to encourage interest in manufacturing among the high school students that will become our future workforce. We've watched the BotsIQ participation grow from 7 teams in 2006 to 78 teams from 60 schools in 2015.
Hamill invests in co-op and internship programs to develop a workforce in all aspects of manufacturing. While machinists are the most recognizeable employees in the industry, there are many other impactful positions available. These opportunities allow students to build a strong base and contribute to the industry for years to come.
