Tuesday, May 15, 2018
The Associated Builders and Contractors Texas Mid Coast Chapter plans to bring a training center to Victoria to provide more skilled workers in the Crossroads.
The training center will be at the previous location of Victoria Electric Cooperative, 102 S. Ben Jordan St., said member Mike Weaver at a recent Victoria Economic Development Center partnership meeting.
“We have 70 employees on a masonry company that we have,” Weaver said. “Sixty of them are from out of the region.”
Both Victoria College and Victoria Independent School District officials have met with ABC officials to discuss the need for a pipeline of skilled workers now and in the future.
