The primary purpose of the Rutherford County Manufacturing Council is to develop a pipeline of skilled manufacturing professionals from entry level to advanced engineering that will decrease the current and projected shortages.  This will be done by establishing partnerships and opportunities for collaboration between manufacturing and educational leadership where partnerships have not existed before.
