ATW #2016 - South Carolina Strategies

May 12th, 2016 at 4:00pm



Dirk Pieper, President & CEO, Sage Automotive Interiors; Lewis Gossett, Executive Director, South Carolina Manufacturing Alliance; Matt Critell, Program Director, Fisher Middle School. Topic: Manufacturing careers.

Factory work in 2016 is a new universe compared to just 20 years ago. Today’s manufacturing has more in common with Google than it does heavy-duty grease. But despite its clean environment and use of computers, the under 30 crowd just doesn’t seem interested in these jobs and that’s troubling for manufacturers of all types.

So some companies have joined together with states, municipalities and schools to try to attract workers from both Millennials and Generation Z. On this week’s Autoline, John McElroy looks at what one area of South Carolina is doing to bring a younger work force into manufacturing. His panel includes: Dirk Pieper, President & CEO of Sage Automotive Interiors; Lewis Gossett, Executive Director SCMA (South Carolina Manufacturing Alliance); Matt Critell, Program Director, Fisher Middle School.
