Compass Components, a privately held manufacturing services and distribution corporation located in the Deming Industrial Park, received over 76-thousand dollars from the state program to create eight jobs.
Compass Manufacturing Services opened in April of 2007, in its 40-thousand square-foot harness manufacturing facility.
The company specializes in cable, harness and electro-mechanical assembly and system integration. Official say Compass Components supports a variety of industry leaders in the transportation, semiconductor, capital equipment and medical markets… as well as network and telecom, test and measurement, and metal fabricator industries.
State Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela said the Job Training Incentive Program provides job creators – like Compass Components – the assistance they may need to take the next step and grow their company.
He added that having a steady stream of dollars available to help businesses hire and train workers has been a great benefit to the state.
Other businesses awarded job training funds were located in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Clovis and Las Vegas, New Mexico.
