This Golden LEAF grant will equip a training center to provide customized training and workforce development skills for Project Butterfly and to workers at other companies in the region. Project Butterfly is considering locating a new fabrication facility in Sanford, creating 322 new jobs in a county with 13.2% unemployment. The jobs would pay an average wage of $37,829, compared to the County average of $35,828. Golden LEAF funds would be used to purchase welding, robotics, pneumatics, hydraulics, programmable logic controllers, and other equipment required for training by Project Butterfly and other companies in the region.
