We understand the importance of workforce training and the value of a qualified workforce. With a strong background in manufacturing, metal fabrication, woodworking and lumber production Winston County is home to a robust, qualified and well-trained workforce. We are also proud to enjoy Alabama’s right-to-work status.
We are fortunate that the county is encircled with a strong community college presence and accordingly, we have worked to utilize the community college system to partner in workforce training efforts. We have encouraged local business leaders to participate in the regional workforce council to promote the ongoing engagement of community technical schools to continually align their teaching curriculums with local business needs.
