You can have a future in manufacturing!
Manufacturing is woven into the historical fabric of Berkshire County and represents a key industry base. Once dominated by a handful of large industries, the economic landscape of the county is now comprised of smaller, niche-manufacturers, who specialize in areas including paper, plastics, medical devices, and aeronautics. These industries represent the future of high-tech manufacturing in Berkshire County. Berkshire Community College, along with the Berkshire Innovation Center are committed to promoting the many new and exciting educational and career opportunities that now exist in manufacturing.
Manufacturing in the Berkshires:
Interprint’s print products decorate the surfaces of numerous wood-based panels that are processed into furniture and flooring and used for interior finishing.
This night stand is constructed with engineered panels that are surfaced with Interprint’s Swiss Elm design, printed as a film-based decorative overlay called Premeer. The mixed oak laminate flooring in the background is another example of an Interprint product.
