Dodge County manufacturers are taking action to promote the availability of jobs in the manufacturing trades.

The recently formed Manufacturing Business Alliance of greater Dodge County is gaining momentum with activities to address the skills gap and now has the highest membership since its inception two years ago.

Pam Korth, manager of human resources at Apache Stainless Equipment Corporation is chairperson of the manufacturing alliance.

“This alliance was created out of need,” Korth said. “The labor pool for skilled trades is too small in the area, which is saturated with manufacturers. We can’t grow our companies by hiring away labor from each other. We needed to increase the pool.”
