LEBANON, Ind. – Central Indiana residents and manufacturing companies will receive a boost in 2015, thanks to a new training center that will be under construction this fall in Lebanon.

Ground was broken July 26 for the Gene Haas Training and Education Center in the Lebanon Industrial Park, located adjacent to I-65. The 20,000 square foot facility is planned to open in August 2015, immediately providing training to close a skills gap for machinists needed by manufacturers in central Indiana.
