ConMet’s local Canton plant recently established a scholarship through Haywood Community College’s Foundation for students in the College’s Computer-Integrated Machining, Industrial Systems or Electrical Engineering programs.

ConMet supplies injection molded, structural foam, gas counter pressure and highly decorative plastic products in a wide range of press sizes from 250-Ton to 4,000-Ton machines. The Canton facility produces products primarily for the heavy truck industry.

The scholarship will be awarded to full-time students to cover a combination of student expenses such as tuition and fees, books, childcare and transportation. Students in these business and industry programs are taught through hands-on applications and receive training on machines that mimic what they will encounter when entering the workforce.

For more information about this scholarship or to give to the HCC Foundation, please call 828-627-4544 or email pahardin@haywood.edu.
