Summary

The North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance initiative, coordinated by Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC), is comprised of seven ship building companies and in addition to NWTC, two other higher education partners. The purpose of the North Coast Marine Manufacturing Alliance is to convene the ship, yacht and boat manufactures in the region to work in partnership with the leaders in workforce development, educational institutions, and economic development to promote, develop, and grow the industry. Currently Marinette Marine Corp., a Fincantieri company, one of the member companies located near the Marinette Campus of NWTC, was awarded a contract to build 10 Littoral Combat ships for the U.S. Navy. This means 1,000 new jobs at Marinette Marine and about 5,000 ancillary jobs over the next three years. NWTC has partnered closely with Marinette Marine, and other manufacturers, to develop and present the training needed to provide highly skilled workers producing the best ships and products in the world.
