BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) and Representative Paul K. Frost (R-Auburn) announced that the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development recently awarded Micorp a business development grant through the Workforce Training Fund General Program.

The Training Fund is an initiative designed to aid productivity and competitiveness by investing in the improvement of employee skills at businesses throughout the Commonwealth. Micorp, New England’s largest automotive restyler and expediter, was awarded $80,000 to train 68 workers.

“The Greater Worcester area possesses some of the most innovative, dynamic and successful companies within our Commonwealth,” said Senator Moore. “I am certainly very impressed by the contributions Micorp has already made to the vibrancy of the area economy and I am confident that this grant opportunity will enhance efforts to promote productivity and competitiveness in the workplace.”

“Very happy to see Micorp in Auburn receive this Workforce Training Grant,” said Representative Frost. “This grant will help this local business grow and continue to provide good jobs in our area.”

Workforce Training Fund General Program grants are awarded on a rolling basis throughout the year. Approximately $17.95 million was allocated in 2017 to train 10,582 workers at 206 different companies across Massachusetts.
