RCCC hosting manufacturer with job openings Friday

SALISBURY – The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute will host an employer spotlight session featuring Custom Plastic Forming, a division of Custom Golf Car Supply Inc.

“Employer spotlights give local residents the opportunity to learn more about specific companies and industries. Presenting companies are often candid about their hiring process and their current talent needs,” said David King, director of business services at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, one of the key partners in the North Carolina Manufacturing Institute.

On Friday at 10 a.m. at the college’s north campus in Salisbury, representatives from Custom Plastic Forming/Custom Golf Car Supply Inc. will share information on how interested candidates can apply for open positions.

“For over 20 years, Custom Plastic Forming has been producing thermoformed and pressure formed parts and building partnerships with its clients,” said David Rosie, general manager. “We excel in products and people. Our team is highly trained, and we offer competitive wages as well as comprehensive benefit packages including health care and profit-sharing.”

The company has a local facility in Salisbury.

“We need CNC machine operators, plastic forming operators and upholsters,” said Rosie.

Employer spotlights like this one are part of a larger effort aimed at providing career services to adults in Rowan and Cabarrus counties.

“Our services help workers assess their skills, aptitudes, training and academic credentials, and future career interests to develop an action plan for career growth,” said King. “Whether you are attending an employer spotlight or coming in for resume guidance or interview preparation, we are here to help.”

The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute is a partnership conceived 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. Graduates with little-to-no manufacturing experience are securing employment through this no-cost eight-week training program to become certified production technicians.

The North Carolina Manufacturing Institute aims to build a clear and achievable pathway for people to acquire skills in order to access good manufacturing jobs in the local community, as it is specifically designed to link and leverage the existing assets of Rowan and Cabarrus counties to solve a growing gap between regional job seekers and available positions.

“This program is for anyone who wants a quality job – it doesn’t matter what your background is, it matters what your future is,” said Craig Lamb, vice president of corporate and continuing education at Rowan-Cabarrus.

The next eight-week training program begins soon. Anyone interested in the training program is required to attend an orientation or discovery session. The next discovery sessions will be held on:

  • Sept. 23, 9 a.m., East Spencer Town Hall
  • Sept. 24, 11 a.m., Cabarrus County Library, Kannapolis
  • Sept. 24, 1:30 p.m., Cabarrus County Library, Mount Pleasant
