Five New Hampshire Companies Receive Job Training Fund Grants

Governor John Lynch has announced that five New Hampshire companies received Job Training Fund Grants in September. Totaling nearly $80,000, the state grants will be used to train nearly 200 New Hampshire workers.

Governor Lynch made it a priority to reinstate the Job Training Fund four years ago. Since then, nearly 11,000 workers from across New Hampshire have received training and enhanced skills through this successful and popular program.

“Investing in our workers, ensuring they have the skills companies need to compete globally, continues to be a key part of our state’s successful economic strategy. The Job Training Fund is ensuring that we have a skilled, educated workforce, which is keeping good jobs right here in New Hampshire,” Governor Lynch said.

The five companies that received grants in September are: WorldCom Exchange in Salem; Ferrite Microwave Technologies of Nashua; Tybrin Corporation of Nashua; RecordsForce of Portsmouth; and PixelMedia in Portsmouth. Each company will match the grant received from the state.

Since the Job Training Fund was re-established, companies from across New Hampshire have received state grants totaling more than $3.8 million. Companies receiving grants have contributed more than $6 million, bringing the total amount invested in new training for workers to over $10 million.
