MT PLEASANT, WI–Gateway Technical College officially cut the ribbon at its newly expanded iMet facility in Mt Pleasant-a building which is expected to house the training for future workers for Foxconn.
The 5 million dollar project equipped the center with the technology that students will need to be trained for the highly skilled jobs Foxconn is anticipated to bring to the area. An additional 12-thousand square feet was added to the building, expanding it by more than a third. Governor Tony Evers attended yesterday’s ceremony and said that Wisconsin must keep up with technology.
Besides high tech career training, iMet will also offer education in engineering, robotics, electronics, advanced manufacturing, and more. The money for the expansion was paid for in part by the state of Wisconsin under the overall Foxconn incentives package.
