Students at the Lapp Center for Excellence in Cable Technology will be educated in industrial technology topics designed to better prepare them for the transition from education into the manufacturing workplace.  As well as supplying high tech cables for students in the mechatronics, industrial electricity and industrial electronics disciplines, Lapp has also created a curriculum that will allow students to train with the most up to date tools and equipment in the cable industry.

Andreas Lapp, Chairman of the Board, Lapp Holding AG, attended the ‘cable cutting’ ceremony and commented, "Partnerships between industry and educational institutions can only serve to strengthen the workforce of tomorrow so I am delighted that we are working with Shelton State Community College to build a stronger cable technology knowledge base. Rarely prioritized, cable is critical to maintaining uptime and avoiding electrical failure in many applications from assembly lines to oil and gas and even wind energy.”
