New Concept Technology
The “in-sourcing” trend of mov–ing manufacturing from offshore companies to a competitive source in North America is fueled by technology, innovation and automation, which rely on a highly skilled workforce. In the York, Pa., area where New Concept Technology is located, the Manufacturers Association of South Central Pennsylvania’s training center keeps the local workforce prepared. New Concept Technology provides 5,000 square feet at its Emigsville, Pa., headquarters for the effort as well as additional support.
“Not only does this training center provide the required education for the tool and die apprentices, but also continuing education in specialized fields such as robotics, electronics, pneumatics and hydraulics,” New Concept Technology President Thomas Baughman says. He is also vice president of the association.
