Central Carolina Technical College Advanced Manufacturing Technology Training Center

Central Carolina Technical College, in partnership with Continental Tire and Sumter School District, has developed their Advanced Manufacturing Technology Training Center.

Previously a Walmart, the 104,000 SF facility is a state-of-the-art industrial training center for applicants and employees of Continental Tire the Americas in association with ReadySC (a division of the SC Technical College System).


  • The new facility includes: Mechatronics, Machine Tool/CNC, and Engineering Graphics Technology. In addition, the Center provides training space for other existing and future industries in Sumter County

  • The Advanced Manufacturing Technology Training Center achieved Two Green Globes® based on the Green Globes environmental assessment and rating system. The Green Globes rating system is developed on a one to four Globe scale to assess the environmental performance of commercial buildings

Construction included: demolition of the interior infrastructure and front facade, exterior components, as well as enhancements to the expansive parking lot. While the structural walls and core framing of the building remained, the front exterior was opened in several locations to eliminate the “big box” feel, add natural daylight, and create greater visibility into the facility.

Additionally, all new HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and data systems, a new roof system, and structural upgrades were made to comply with current state requirements.
