“We’re proud to support Piedmont Technical College’s engineering technology programs,” said Rick Todd, plant manager of Eaton’s Emerald Road facility. “Our contribution will help our community’s students succeed academically today, and in the workplace later on.” Locally, Eaton employs approximately 1,500 residents from Greenwood and surrounding counties across five plant locations.
As a major provider of training for future Eaton employees, PTC will use these funds to purchase equipment for the college’s engineering technology programs to ensure that students are receiving the most up-to-date training available as well as provide engineering-based summer programs for middle and high school students. PTC’s engineering technology department offers degrees in a variety of engineering disciplines, including electronic engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology and engineering graphics technology.
