This week is especially exciting for the local manufacturing community since Colorado was recently awarded a manufacturing grant in the amount of nearly $25 million dollars. Read the official press release here. Regional community colleges will receive a significant portion of that funding to grow and enhance their manufacturing-related programs for companies such as DMS.
DMS has also shown support for Pikes Peak Community College by offering a PPPC Internship Program for students to get hands-on experience in our new world headquarters at 1068 Elkton Drive Colorado Springs, CO 80907.
