Minneapolis, Minnesota: Acme Metal Spinning management first heard about the grant through Anoka Technical College who partnered with the Anoka Chamber of Commerce, a Dual-Training Grant recipient. Through the Chamber, three of Acme Metal Spinning’s employees received free college classes from Anoka Technical College through the Dual-Training Grant in the 2021-2022 school year. In-order-to be able to streamline the classes for the needs of Acme employees for next year, Acme applied for their own grant and were awarded!
Some of Acme Metal Spinning’s employees have worked for the company for over 20, 30 and 40 years. Several have retired over the past few years so Acme was looking for ways to train up the next generation. Participation in the Dual-Training program will allow Acme workers to get some accredited education in the tooling and manufacturing industry while training at work beside our skilled craftsmen.
