  • We have placed more than 5,000 people in high-quality advanced manufacturing jobs.

  • Regional manufacturers have reduced hiring time and costs by as much 30 percent.

  • 70 companies across Hampton Roads have joined the program. For a list, click on the “Participating Companies” link above.
