Indium Corporation Celebrates Graduates of First Apprenticeship Class

Indium Corporation proudly celebrated the first eight graduates of its apprenticeship program during an event at the company’s Lincoln Avenue facility in Utica on October 18. Also present at the celebration were representatives from external program partners including the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY) and Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC).

Launched in 2021, in partnership with MACNY, MVCC, the National Institute for Innovation and Technology (NIIT), and SUNY Poly, Indium Corporation’s apprenticeship program offers select employees an opportunity for on-the-job training while also working toward earning their professional certificates and college credits. Nine additional team members are set to graduate in the winter of 2024.

“On behalf of more than 1,400 team members worldwide, we are tremendously proud of the accomplishments of our pioneer apprentices,” said President and COO Ross Berntson. “The New York State Apprenticeship Program aligns with Indium Corporation’s dedication to developing our workforce, enabling them to excel in their current roles and also to meet the evolving demands of the advanced manufacturing sector, particularly within the semiconductor industry.”
