LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Vincennes University’s InternPLUS Advanced Internship in Manufacturing (AIM) program welcomes ARaymond Network as its latest corporate partner. A family business since 1865, the ARaymond Network is a global leader in fastening solutions for the automotive industry and operates the ARaymond Tinnerman Manufacturing plant in Logansport.

“We welcome this new partnership with Vincennes University and its AIM program,” said Keith Holmes, plant manager of the ARaymond Logansport facility. “The success of advanced manufacturing technology is critical to our success as a business and to the continued economic growth and prosperity of our society. Ensuring that we develop, train, and retain the high level of technical skill necessary for the future is what makes the AIM program with VU so attractive and beneficial.”

The AIM program includes a two-year degree in Advanced Manufacturing Automation Technology/Industrial Maintenance. It combines cutting-edge curriculum and paid work experience with technical skills that are highly sought by leading manufacturers.

The ARaymond Network is the latest company to join other AIM corporate partners that include BraunAbility, Nanshan America, Caterpillar, Heartland Automotive LLC, Subaru of Indiana Automotive, and voestalpine Rotec Inc. Providing the opportunity for interns to gain valuable real world experiences that could cover the cost of their schooling, these companies are working to attract new industrial maintenance workers who are in high demand by manufacturers.
