South Texas College hosted the Cámara Mexicana de la Industria de la Construcción (CMIC) delegation recently at its Institute for Advanced Manufacturing (IAM) facility housed at the college’s Technology campus.

CMIC delegates from Reynosa and the statewide chapter from Tamaulipas, Mexico gathered for a tour of the IAM campus to get an inside look at what STC has to offer in terms of customized and hands-on training for their employees.

STC recently extended its workforce development training and services internationally, most recently customizing robotics and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses for employees at Reynosa factories and manufacturing facilities. 

“STC President Ricardo Solis is the mastermind behind this initiative,” Luisa Fernanda Rodriguez, STC global market development coordinator, told the group of delegates. “The training we provide addresses the needs in our workforce and gives our partners access to resources and support that will further connect our border.” 

The tour focused on raising awareness of what STC has to offer in the industrial sectors of petrochemical, construction, manufacturing and logistics and transportation.

CMIC Tamaulipas and CMIC Reynosa are interested in partnering with STC for customized construction training that will take their organization to new heights.

Gerardo Holguín Lopez, chairman of the CMIC Tamaulipas steering committee, said he was impressed with everything STC has to offer. 

“What STC has to offer is top-notch, state-of-the-art. We are so impressed with everything,” he said. “What the college has, especially for construction, is everything we need.”

With three CMIC Tamaulipas chapters along the U.S./Mexico border in Reynosa, Matamoros and Nuevo Laredo, the collaboration between CMIC and STC will greatly impact the neighboring regions. 

“Giving our employees access to this type of training and giving them the opportunity to gain new skills and obtain a certificate, is going to take CMIC and the work we do along the border to a new level,” said Lopez. “The overall aspect of STC expanding its training across the border will have a great impact on everybody.” 

STC President Ricardo J. Solis, Ph.D., said STC is creating bold solutions to have a global impact with its workforce development and new international partnerships. 

“We are excited to be entering a new phase in our workforce development training,” said Solis. “We are growing this department tenfold and Luisa, Dr. Carlos Margo and their team are focused on ensuring we meet the demands of industry. We are proud of the work we’re doing, the impact we’re making and we’re excited that organizations like CMIC and others along our border will have the opportunity to benefit from our customized training and all STC has to offer.”
