SteelAsia Manufacturing Corp. has tapped Germany’s Badische Stahl-Engineering GmbH (BSE) for the design and curriculum development of its world-class training center that will open in the second quarter of the year.
SteelAsia president and chief executive officer Benjamin Yao said the company engaged BSE to ensure the training center, which would produce SteelAsia’s future workers, applied the best practices in the world.
“We believe that we are in the best position to determine the type of skills that are needed for our operations. With SteelAsia’s rapid growth, we have to ensure that we have the competent and skilled manpower required in our manufacturing plants. And a training center with the help of the best in the world—BSE—will allow us to achieve this goal,” he said.
“With this training center located in southern Luzon, we are not only addressing the company’s manpower needs but we also hope to provide skills training and employment opportunities to the unemployed near our plants, even if they are unskilled,” Yao added.
