Technical Metals greatly appreciates the help of the GLCEDC as we hire new employees and incur significant training costs and make large capital investments. The $47,500 grant made by the GLCEDC helped offset the cost of purchasing a vertical and horizontal CNC machine center for TMI’s 10 additional employees last year. Additionally, TMI plans to hire 10 or more employees in 2018. Our business is very capital intensive, and as we complete against companies around the world, growth in Illinois is very difficult without assistance such as the GLCEDC provides.
