Missouri Association of Manufacturers Honors Nidec for Workforce Development


The Missouri Association of Manufacturers (MAM) has presented Nidec Motor Corporation with a 2017 Made in Missouri Leadership Award for its work with other local businesses to shape the future of global manufacturing, and its contributions to MAM’s SKILLSOURCE initiative.

SKILLSOURCE is addressing critical issues such as skills gap and technical workforce development through the promotion of manufacturing as a desirable career choice; the support of training programs that result in nationally portable, industry-recognized credentials; and the increased accessibility of internship, externship and apprenticeship programs, advanced training funding sources and scholarships.

Nidec is part of a coalition of several companies, entitled MFG INC, who are taking the initiative to address the manufacturing skills gap and workforce shortage. They are developing a systematic organizational capability to identify, shape, and nurture new-growth initiatives. These companies united together to find a solution, developed a plan, sought financing and created a unique partnership to foster new growth, provide support to microenterprise training programs, workforce and economic development for long-term initiatives.
