Piedmont Technical College and Abbeville County Career Center
Stoll industries registered their first three apprenticeships in August of 2021, including the first youth apprenticeship of Greenwood County. Since then, they have expanded their program to include ten different occupations to not only cross train and empower their workforce, but to build a strong cadre of leaders at all phases of the organization.
Stoll Industries recently graduated 23 employees from their Assembler apprenticeship program. The graduates successfully completed the on-the-job training requirements, as well as classroom training at Piedmont Technical College in welding, distribution & logistics, manufacturing, and safety. Stoll Industries also serves as the education provider for Transformational Leadership, a course which they believe empowers their employees to be the best versions of themselves at work and in their homes and communities. Stoll Industries is proud to use apprenticeship as a key component of their workforce development and training.
Michael Hyland, Director of Workforce Development
“Apprenticeship has given Stoll Industries employees a career path in ten different occupations for our employees to learn multiple skill sets and trades to become a master craftsman. Not only are we gaining cross-functional expertise, but we are experiencing unprecedented employee retention, higher productivity, and a transformed workplace.”
