Integro Technologies Partners with NC Manufacturing Institute

Integro Technologies Corp., a leading vision integrator in Salisbury, announces its recent partnership with the NC Manufacturing Institute.

The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute initiative was conceived in the summer of 2014 during meetings with leaders from Rowan and Cabarrus counties from both chambers of commerce, economic development authorities, the Centralina Workforce Development Board and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.

The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute is a response to employers’ need for solving talent recruitment issues in order to grow and remain competitive. This initiative builds a clear and achievable pathway for people to acquire those skills in order to access good jobs in local communities.

“The training provided by the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute is critical to our region and state’s economic health and future. Manufacturing is strong in North Carolina. However, the employee requirements and skill sets have dramatically changed from traditional manufacturing as a result of automation and computer technology. This type of program is critical to prepare people for today’s jobs and tomorrow’s careers,” said Shawn Campion, president of Integro Technologies.

Manufacturing firms and companies such as Integro Technologies will benefit from collaborating with the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute through access to a pipeline of screened, trained, and certified production technicians who can help them achieve their business goals.

“Having a partner like Integro provides the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute with valuable resources and insights as we build the manufacturing workforce of tomorrow.  Integro’s leading-edge approaches to machine vision systems and technology integration, coupled with its commitment to the local economy is a perfect fit for our initiative,” said Craig Lamb, vice president of corporate & continuing education at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
