Nephron Pharmaceuticals partners with MTC to fill the jobs gap

"We recently opened a new greenfield facility just outside of Columbia, SC. Midlands Technical College was a major factor in determining our location choice.

"We expect to double in size over the next few years, so it was important to have a partner we could rely on."

One of the best examples of how well Nephron Pharmaceuticals and Midlands Technical College work together is, Midlands Technical College, with open arms, welcomed our machinists to come into their machine shop on the Beltline Campus. 

We asked several of our engineers, HR folks, and others to give Midlands Technical College a list of the skills that we’re looking for when we’re interviewing and recruiting. They were either already in existence at Midlands Technical College, or things that could be a little more specialized to help us. There are so many divisions of our company, and there are so many tracks that you can take at MTC that benefit us.

I think that students really can get anywhere from MTC, and I believe that MTC and its faculty have that spirit throughout all of its campuses that help you get to your end game. We can see a faculty that is diverse, students that are diverse, and what they can achieve in the very faculty at the college.

I think it just shows that anybody can get a skill and be able to be hired."
