Furthering educational opportunities for students through technology was the intent when Chemeketa Community College signed an agreement for an educational partnership between itself, the college’s machining technology program and DMG MORI at the Salem campus.

DMG MORI is a global manufacturer of machines, tools and software used in the machining field.

“We are partnering with a world-class company,” said Johnny Mack, Chemeketa’s executive dean of career and technical education.

Sheldon Schnider, machining instructor, said in conjunction with the partnership, Chemeketa has been recognized by DMG MORI as one of only five regional education centers of excellence in the country.

The excellence of Chemeketa’s program and the workers it is turning out was recognized during the ceremony by Marlow Knabach, DMG MORI’s chief technology officer.

“What you have through these doors is what drew me into the industry,” Knabach said of Chemeketa’s machining labs.

President Julie Huckestein said one of the proudest moments for the college outside of graduation is when partnerships like the one with DMG MORI can be celebrated.

“It’s pretty easy with this (machining) program to be proud of it,” Huckestein said.
