Two-year college in Pennsylvania is building a facility to house advanced manufacturing program

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster plans to open the Greiner Center for Advanced Manufacturing in 2018.

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster, Pa.is beginning construction on the $20 million Greiner Center for Advanced Manufacturing.

The school, a state-owned two-year college of technology, is constructing the facility to house the machine tool and computer-aided manufacturing, metals fabrication and welding and heating, ventilation, air condition and refrigeration programs. The center is expected to be open for classes in fall 2018.

 “In a world where we constantly hear of political polarization, partisanship, and ideological silos, this project stands in stark contrast,” says Thaddeus Stevens president William Griscom. “It represents a positive example of a multilevel, bipartisan governmental, public-private partnership, that required leadership, creativity, cooperation, and compromise, in order to become a reality.”

The Greiner Center will be a 60,000-square-foot facility consisting of two buildings on the site of a former National Guard Armory, a short distance from the college’s  main campus.

The facility is being built by the Pennsylvania Department of General Services at a cost of about $20 million. The college raised an additional $2.4 million through a capital campaign, including a $1 million lead grant from Greiner Industries.
