A Key factor in maintaining the long-term health of the Lynchburg MSA's Manufacturing sector is to ensure an adequate pipeline of trained Manufacturing workers. Central Virginia Industries Council is an organization that provides valuable benefits to the manufacturers in our region. Its partnership with the Virginia Manufacturers Association Workforce Development Division focuses on reinforcing the skilled-workforce pipeline for manufacturing in the region, especially in the area of middle-skilled positions– jobs that require more than a high school diploma but less than a two-year degree.
