Precision Machining

A Pro-Business Environment, Plated and Pressed

In a region teeming with advanced manufacturers, precision machining is an important cog in the success of more than one industry. Automotive, aircraft, textiles, and other commercial and industrial businesses rely on Cleveland County’s resources and assets to ensure all the parts fall into place.

Talent, location and infrastructure lend themselves to companies like Cleveland Yutaka. A subsidiary of Yutaka Industry Co. in Japan, established Cleveland County roots in 1996 and over the course of 20-plus years doubled its footprint, invested an additional $15 million and brought on more than 100 employees.

While incentives and reliable, low-cost utilities are part of the region’s pro-business perks, Cleveland County’s workforce is at the top of the most valuable list.

Fabricated metal and machinery are the two largest employment sectors within advanced manufacturing. Individuals interested in precision machinery are fostered early on thanks to programs like the CNC Technology Academy, a job training program that introduces machining skills needed to obtain employment in the metalworking industry.
