To satisfy talent demands from area manufacturers, Battle Creek-based Kellogg Community College announced plans for a $2.75 million expansion to its Regional Manufacturing Technology Center (RMTC).

The 8,400-square-foot expansion will allow the community college to “reposition some of our large equipment and add new pieces in the future while creating enough elbow room to safely and thoroughly educate our students,” RMTC director Tom Longman said in a statement.

KCC received more than $1.5 million from the Battle Creek Tax Increment Finance Authority to fund the expansion, which is located in Battle Creek’s Fort Custer Industrial Park. The remaining funds will be paid through KCC by funds generated from a capital millage for facilities improvements that was approved by voters in 2012.

The expansion project is projected to be completed in July 2016.

“As a key provider of workforce development and manufacturing training in the region, KCC is acutely aware that our local employers are hiring, and they need workers who are trained in specific processes that require specialized equipment,” KCC interim President Mark O'Connell said in the statement.
