The company has committed $1 million to its training program with Ivy Tech.In a news release, Ivy Tech Community College said its Corporate College delivers training programs for Fort Wayne Metals, which include technical certificates, leadership programs and quality certifications. The company and Ivy Tech will train more than 200 production employees in the advanced manufacturing certificate program and other types of training and certification.

The company is setting aside $700,000 for training expenses and $300,000 toward employee salary incentives, according to Ivy Tech.

There are about 75 employees participating in the initial two courses now.
