Pequot Tool and Manufacturing is among 41 Minnesota companies to share more than $2.1 million in state funding as part of the Minnesota PIPELINE Program.

The program gives businesses the opportunity to begin employment-based dual training for current and new employees. Pequot Tool's grant will fund PTM Incumbent Worker Training.

In 2015, Gov. Mark Dayton signed the Dual Training Grants legislation, which was created to give employee-students the opportunity to earn wages while the learn and at the same time help businesses meet workforce needs. Four industries with in-demand, high-growth occupations are eligible to receive grants: advanced manufacturing, health care services, information technology and agriculture.
