LIFT: Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow

Tennessee

Manufacturing firms in Tennessee employ nearly 350,000 workers and contribute 16% to the Gross State Product. To support this important industry, a priority in Tennessee is the creation of a statewide, comprehensive structure enabling students in Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology and community colleges to participate in technical training developed with input from area employers. Tennessee’s commitment to enhancing career pathways into manufacturing is exhibited by Governor Haslam’s leadership in the Drive to 55 Alliance – a collaboration of private sector partners, leaders and non-profits working together to ensure that at least 55% of Tennesseans have a college degree or certificate by 2015.
