Like many advanced manufacturers throughout the Lincoln Trail region, Tower International is dedicated to ensuring its employees have the right skills. It’s a practice that not only allows employees to grow professionally and advance their careers, but it also promotes the company’s competitiveness.
A global leader in metal stamping for the automotive and other industries, Tower International has enjoyed expansions – more than doubling the size of its operations since opening in 1996. In addition, the industry is driven more than ever by state-of-the-art technology. This has created new opportunities for skilled workers at a time when manufacturers across the state and the country are struggling to fill a technical skills gap.
More and more companies are addressing the skills gap by helping existing employees develop new skills or, to put it another way, growing their own talent.
