The Broward Alliance has announced that Hoerbiger Corporation has been awarded a Florida Quick Response Training Grant for $301,350 by Workforce Florida. The grant will help Hoerbiger create 58 new jobs and provide customized training for the new employees and 272 existing employees at its Pompano Beach location over the next two years. The training will be coordinated through Broward College. The company is active throughout the world as a leading player in the fields of compression technology, automation technology and drive technology.

“Hoerbiger recognized the need for additional employee training as they were working to expand their operations in Pompano Beach,” said James P. Tarlton (JT), president and CEO of The Broward Alliance. “The Broward Alliance was able to assist by identifying an appropriate grant through our partnership with WorkForce One and helped facilitate the grant application process. The referral was made by June Wolfe, president of the South Florida Manufacturers Association.”

“Our goal is to attract, retain and develop the best employees, and we continually invest in their skills and talents,” said Hannes Hunschofsky, president of Hoerbiger Corporation of America, Inc. This grant helps make those training resources possible.”
