Viega announced the establishment of its manufacturing apprenticeship program with the assistance of Hutchinson Community College. The program will start in January. In addition to receiving a paid position working in Viega’s plastics, metals, machining or maintenance divisions, selected students will receive a three-year associate’s degree paid-in-full by Viega with the potential to earn other employee benefits. Graduates of the program also will be offered a full-time position upon graduation.
