August 24, 2012

Cambridge Metals and Plastics (CMP) and the new Professional and Workforce Training (PWT) division of the aligned Anoka Technical College and Anoka-Ramsey Community College, recently received a Minnesota Job Skills Partnership (MJSP) grant of $290,144.

“We are thrilled to be working with Cambridge Metals and Plastics (CMP) on this MJSP project,” says grant coordinator and Professional and Workforce Training Director, Steve Jones. “CMP’s owners and leaders are 100% committed to providing training programs to upgrade the skills and knowledge of their employees. The MJSP grant is just one part of the overall training program reflected in the partnership between CMP and PWT. We look forward to a long and positive relationship.”

The training funded through the grant will focus on technical skills, quick response manufacturing, environmental strategies and improving quality operations.

Specific classes include: Calculations for Production, Schematics, Welders GD&T, PLC programming, Mistake Proofing, Techniques of Data Collection and Analysis, as well as a number of sophisticated Lean strategies to reduce waste and cut lead time in all phases of manufacturing. All 200 CMP employees will receive training in one or more of these classes. 

All MJSP-funded training projects pair at least one public/private accredited Minnesota educational institution and one business. Funds are dedicated for training-related costs or educational infrastructure improvements necessary to support businesses located or intending to locate in Minnesota. A cash or in-kind contribution from the contributing business must match program funds on at least a one-to-one ratio.
