Metalsa and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College will announce a partnership today to establish a robotics training facility. The facility will be housed in the Occupational Technical Building at the college.

The Metalsa Robotics Training Center includes robotic manufacturing work stations and a computer classroom, along with offices.

The 1,200-square-foot facility initially will be used to train Metalsa employees and ECTC faculty on a robot often used in industrial manufacturing. ECTC will begin using the equipment in its classes in 2014.

ECTC President/CEO Thelma White said in a news release she is pleased to see this partnership take place.

“We are pleased to welcome Metalsa into the ECTC family of business and industry partners who share the vision of an educated citizenry and a better quality of life for individuals and families,” White said.
