Paulson Training Begins Training Partnership with Northwest-Shoals Community College

Paulson Training Programs, Inc. is pleased to announce a new partnership with Northwest-Shoals Community College (NW-SCC) and area injection molding companies to provide Paulson’s extensive injection molding library of training programs to the Northwest-Shoals Community College.

Northwest-Shoals Community College is partnering with local industry to offer training at the school to supply injection molders in the area with a steady, reliable source of expert trained employees. The industry-leading Paulson Training Programs library of plastics processing courses is a cornerstone of this project.

Paulson was chosen as the best training solution for this initiative after a rigorous competitive bidding process with other training companies. Paulson’s extensive library of plastics processing training, decades of experience in the industry and thousands of installed programs throughout the US and worldwide were cited as some of the reasons that NW-SCC chose Paulson as their preferred vendor.

“We are extremely honored to have been selected by Northwest-Shoals Community College to supply much needed training the fast-growing injection molding industry in the area”, said Craig Paulson, President of Paulson Training Programs. “Paulson is going all out to make sure this training initiative is a success.”

Given the skilled labor shortage in the plastics industry, several international companies wanted assurance that if they were to locate their new injection molding manufacturing plants in the area, they would have the trained personnel they need to operate at the highest level demanded by their customers.

Dr. Humphrey Lee, President of Northwest-Shoals Community College said, “We are very excited to be able to play such a key role for our injection molding manufacturers in the region. Being able to provide this world-class training to our industry partners is a win-win situation for all involved.”

Greg Springer from Northwest-Shoals Community College has been the school’s point man for implementing the training programs. Paulson Training has been working closely with Mr. Springer to get the training launched. Mr. Springer has also attended seminars given by the Paulson Plastics Academy as part of the initial training and to enable him to make sure implementation of the training runs smoothly.
