Hobart Institute to expand welding training area
Driven by a demand for welding training and increasing enrollment, ground is being broken to enlarge the northeast area of the Hobart Institute of Welding Technology (HIWT), Troy, Ohio. The 6,360-sq.-ft. structure will house 50 to 60 additional arc welding booths equipped for all processes and a fume exhaust system.
Revenue from skill training at HIWT has more than doubled in the past eight years. To accommodate that capacity, the organization has made more efficient use of existing space and added a second shift. This new construction will enable the Institute to accommodate up to 60 additional students on each shift.
