Smiths Machine CEO Tim Smith joined area leaders, including University of Alabama System Chancellor Dr. Robert Whitt and Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc. CEO Jason Hoff, in providing strong testimonials for business location in the County. Mr. Smith’s testimonial:
“Tuscaloosa County is the ideal location for Smiths Machine. Being a technology driven manufacturer of precision components for the defense and aerospace industries, we are continuously faced with the need to be dynamic and innovative to meet customer demands. The constantly improving training and educational programs offered in the Tuscaloosa County area have provided our company with the workforce to meet our capacity needs.
With most of our positions being highly skilled engineering jobs with some production position we see a great mix of ability and educational background due to the different universities, colleges and technical centers in the area. With the drive and leadership in the Tuscaloosa County area, I feel confident that the support from the community for our training and development programs will only continue to increase over time.”
