County worked in partnership with Trident Technical College, South
Carolina Department of Commerce, Volvo Cars, and Ready SC to pilot the program
in June of 2017. More than 150 people graduated from the
Lean Manufacturing course, which put them on the path to employment
opportunities at Volvo Cars in Ridgeville. Since then, neighboring
counties have emulated the training program to provide opportunities for
residents around the state with more than 900 graduates in the Tri-County
area, including 350 Berkeley County residents. SC Department of
Commerce has rebranded the program to ManuFirstSCTM
and has begun to roll it out across the state’s technical college system
by industry demand.
