While there's plenty of media coverage dedicated to the skills gap in U.S. manufacturing, there's not a whole lot of discussion about the potential solutions.

Quick Start leverages flexibility, innovative thinking and leadership to help Georgia manufacturers find the right talent, reducing the time it takes for a company to begin operations.
