Haering Precision USA LP Hosts Successful Inaugural Skills Invitational in Collaboration with North Georgia Technical College

We are excited to announce the successful conclusion of our first annual Skills Invitational, held in partnership with North Georgia Technical College. The event took place on April 24, 2024, at North Georgia Tech's Clarkesville campus, drawing participants from Franklin, Hart, Stephens, and Union counties.

The Skills Invitational aimed to ignite interest in machining and metals jobs among high school students while providing them with a platform to explore diverse career opportunities within the manufacturing industry. Participants from local high schools teamed up with senior precision machining students from North Georgia Tech in a proam style contest, engaging in challenges designed to test their technical skills, creativity, and teamwork.

Throughout the day-long event, students faced a series of hands-on challenges carefully crafted to simulate real-world scenarios encountered in precision machining and manufacturing. From interpreting technical drawings to programming CNC machines, participants demonstrated their proficiency and adaptability in tackling various tasks. Judges evaluated teams based on criteria such as accuracy, efficiency, innovation, and collaborative problem-solving.

The Skills Invitational was more than just a competition; it was a platform for students to apply their knowledge, showcase their skills, and explore their interest in machining. We witnessed exceptional talent and determination among the participants, reaffirming our belief in the bright future of the manufacturing industry.

The competition concluded with an award ceremony recognizing the students’ achievements and contributions. Winners received various prizes, including tools and paid internship opportunities at our facility in the US, providing them with valuable exposure to real-world manufacturing processes and fostering their professional growth. Franklin County High School senior Logan Turner took home first place in the contest.

Through this event, we have empowered young talent and encouraged them to explore the exciting possibilities within our industry. We are thrilled with the outcome of our inaugural Skills Invitational and the enthusiasm displayed by all participants.

We extend our gratitude to the participating high schools, students, faculty, and industry partners from Franklin, Hart, Stephens and Union counties for their active involvement and commitment to advancing manufacturing education and workforce development initiatives.

Following the success of the inaugural Skills Invitational, we are eager to expand opportunities for students to explore and pursue careers in precision machining and manufacturing, and look forward to next year's competition.
