Recently relocated in a newly renovated facility in Canton, MA — Remtec will use the grant to invest in its people and competitiveness, just in time to take advantage of re-onshoring trends in US electronics industry.
Canton, MA — Remtec Incorporated — a leading U.S. provider of ceramic-based packaging, assemblies, substrates, and components applied across the electronics industry – announced today it has received a grant of $150,000 from the Healy-Driscoll Administration of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. One of nearly 200 businesses statewide just awarded resources from the Workforce Training Fund Program (WTFP), Remtec will use the dollars to strengthen its workforce, which has just relocated to a newly renovated facility in Canton, MA (the previous plant was located in Norwood). The funds also bolster Remtec’s ability to leverage opportunities and position itself for continued growth as the U.S. seeks to “re-onshore” manufacturing of microelectronics, semi-conductor packaging, and printed circuit boards (PCBs) – as evidenced by such federal initiatives as the Chips & Science Act and Protecting Circuit Boards and Substrates Act of 2023.
“The timing of the application we submitted, and the announcement that we’ve been awarded the funds, couldn’t be better,” said Remtec’s president, Brian Buyea. “Not only will it help us compete in this exciting era by making our people stronger – we see it as a validation and recognition by Massachusetts of our importance to the local and regional economy. Our people really appreciate that.”
According to Buyea, the nature of the Remtec workforce training that will be partially funded by the WTFP grant will include focus on:
- Project management
- General workforce training on Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
- Manufacturing ERP system implementation and use
- Lean manufacturing
Buyea also acknowledged the contribution of the team at Hamilton Cornell, a Boston-area workforce and business-process consultancy who played a crucial role in submitting Remtec’s winning application and will assist with conducting the training itself.
