Emerson Partners with Ranken Technical College to Help Prepare the Manufacturing Workforce of the Future


As part of its ongoing efforts to advance high-tech workforce skills and support the St. Louis community, Emerson EMR, -0.11% today announced plans to expand its manufacturing education and training partnership with Ranken Technical College. The announcement was made in conjunction with a groundbreaking ceremony for Ranken’s new Manufacturing Incubator facility in north St. Louis.

When the facility opens next year, it will include a new Emerson production line for making components used in industrial control systems designed and manufactured by Emerson Automation Solutions, providing Ranken students with hands-on experience in a modern manufacturing environment using advanced technology.
