Central Carolina Technical College’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Training Center (AMTTC) will be a state-of-the-art industrial training center for training applicants and employees of Continental Tire the Americas in association with readySC (a division of the SC Technical College System). In addition, the College will relocate and expand its Basic and Advanced Mechatronics, Machine Tool/CNC, and Engineering Graphics Technology programs to this facility, and provide training space for other existing and future industries in Sumter County.
The facility being renovated is 104,000 square feet and was previously a Walmart. Approximately 85,000 square feet of the building will be renovated during this project. Funding for the project was secured through State Appropriations and a U.S. Department of Commerce EDA grant. The project is expected to be complete in May of 2015.
