MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Governor Bill Haslam announced Wednesday nearly $1 million in job training grants to four Memphis companies.
The grants were awarded through the state's Incumbent Worker Training Program, administered by the Tennessee Department of Labor.
Smith & Nephew, Advanced Services, Inc. and Thyssenkrupp Elevator were each awarded $25,000; Dillard Door & Security, Inc. was awarded $15,000.
“If Tennessee is going to become the number one location in the Southeast for high-quality jobs, then we must offer a well-trained workforce to employers,” said Governor Haslam. “This kind of training grant not only helps educate workers, but also provides incentive to employers looking to relocate or expand in Tennessee.”
