MSU/CAVS and KITECH Form Partnership

November 19, 2012

Mississippi State University and Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) signed a Memorandum of Understanding recently which establishes the KITECH-CAVS Center for Root Technologies. Root technology refers to several key technologies of the manufacturing industry -- casting, molding, forming, surface treatment, thermal treatment, and welding/joining technologies, and any related fields.

The alliance will allow CAVS and KITECH to support global manufacturers' efforts to develop products and train employees for their facilities in the southeastern United States. Because South Korean companies, including carmakers like Hyundai and Kia, have located in the region, other Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers are also investing in the region. KITECH serves as a research and development resource for small and medium enterprises, such as these suppliers.
