A significant asset of the Blue Water area is our skilled and productive workforce. In St. Clair County, we can hire local, or easily draw from a pool of nearby engineering and manufacturing professionals whose talents are adaptable to a number of emerging markets including defense and alternative energy sectors. 

We have also implemented workforce training programs to fill skills gaps identified by local companies; and we offer customized training or shared training cohorts to save on business costs through our workforce development partners.  If our workforce doesn't have the specific skills you need, we make it easy and cost effective to fill those training gaps with employees ready to work for you!
