Utah Key Partnership & Electronics

By: Thomas Cutler

The U.S. is the world's largest producer of electronic products, accounting for around 21% of the world total. It also represents the world's largest market with around 29% of the total and with the outsourcing trend of sending many of our high volume, repetitive, high tech jobs offshore; we are left with the lower volume, but more complex jobs which require much higher skills. Job growth pushed down the unemployment rate to 2.5 percent in Utah, significantly lower than the U.S. unemployment rate of 4.5 percent.

David Newman the ResourceMFG area manager in Salt Lake City recently commented about the importance of the relationship with the Utah Manufacturers Association (UMA) and the Economic Development Corp. of Utah noting that, "We are very excited and encouraged by the support we have received from the UMA and the EDCU. The market research and networking functions they provide enable us to keep our finger on the pulse of manufacturing in the Salt Lake market. It is, in part, because of their expertise and the relationships formed through membership and participation in these associations, we decided to launch the first offering focused on the electronics manufacturing sector, ResourceMFG Electronics. It is evident there is a need for skilled electronics manufacturing personnel and we are confident our unique approach to recruiting, assessing, and training will be part of the solution."


ResourceMFG recognizes the core competencies of recruiting, screening, hiring, placing and retaining a temporary workforce. ResourceMFG has to be proactive in training the skilled electronics workforce of tomorrow and partnered with Blackfox Training Institute to provide and end to end solution to the Electronic manufacturing sector. This solution provides a qualified, certified, contingent workforce which is more productive for customers; it also creates great opportunities for trained employees. With the growing demand for skilled employees in the electronics industry this strategic partnership provides a seamless solution.
