The purpose of this grant is to help Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College launch a Composite Materials Training Center of Excellence. GE Aviation is constructing a 175,000-square-foot facility in Asheville that will produce engine components made of advanced composite materials. This Center will retrain approximately 290 incumbent and 60 new Asheville-area GE Aviation employees. The Center will also serve other companies in the area that use composite materials in their manufacturing. Golden LEAF funds will be used for equipment and for building improvements that are necessary to house the Training Center.
