Mechanical Trades School Opens Second Location in Hampton

Monday, July 1st, 2019
The ribbon cutting for the New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades marks
the second location for the school, to meet the demand for skilled tradesmen.

With construction completed on its second training facility, the New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades in Hampton celebrated last week with a ribbon cutting attended by over 60 people.

The opening of the state-of-the-art, $1.6 million building will meet a critical need in the state because of the demand for mechanical tradesmen. After seeing enrollment nearly double in a few short years at the school’s Manchester location, founders Dean Millard and John Huff saw a need to meet the demand from Seacoast businesses sending their employees across the state for training there.

“We need your skills, we need your talent,” said Gov. Chris Sununu. “What you’re creating here is the workforce of the future – not for next year, but for 10 – 20 – 50 years down the road. We need to be investing in the infrastructure to keep our economy strong, to keep the services out there and to keep the jobs and careers out there available for the coming decades.”

The New Hampshire School of Mechanical Trades offers programs in the areas of oil and gas; heating; plumbing; electric, and HVAC and features working labs that offer students hands-on experience. It works with students to make the training affordable and works with companies to place graduates in the trades profession.
