South Carolina has

“SOLIDIFIED ITS STATUS AS THE

NO. 1 TIRE-PRODUCING STATE,

with an estimated 99,000 units of daily tire

production, as new plants and expansions by

Bridgestone Americas, Continental Tire and

Michelin began having an effect. The state’s

collective capacity will keep growing with the

addition of plants from Giti Tire and

Trelleborg Wheel Systems in 2016.”

’ 2015 MARKET DATA BOOK

During

discovery

, readySC

works with a company’s

Subject Matter Experts to

determine the skills,

knowledge and abilities

needed and define the

culture and working

environment they want to

create at their facility.

In the

design

phase,

readySC

integrates a

company’s principles into

every facet of the training so

their training plan is

customized precisely to

their needs.

For

delivery

, readySC

partners with company

management to

intertwine company role

expectations with

foundational and

process-specific knowledge.

It is an ongoing relationship that

goes back 40 years. readySC has

been successfully recruiting and

training the skilled workforce

needed for the tire industry since

1975 when Michelin opened the

first of many plants in the state.

According to Ed Zobel, legislative

liaison for the SC Technical College

System from 1974 – 2005, “One of

the reasons Michelin came to South

Carolina was that we could cus-

tom-make a training program that

just fit like a tailor-made suit.”

That tailor-made approach still

works today: from recruitment

micro-sites and pre-employment

workplace simulations to train-

the-trainer programs and compre-

hensive on-the-job training. South

Carolina’s readySC program uses

its wealth of experience to design

the right solution that is a perfect

fit for each company’s unique

needs.
