The new TAT Technology Development and Training (TDT) Center in St. Marys recently opened its doors in the former Stackpole Complex with hopes of offering a variety of hands-on courses designed to continually improve the industry.
TAT Technologies President Harb Nayar, PhD, based in Summit, N.J., chose to open the facility in St. Marys because of the area's strong powdered metal (PM) industry.
"This, in a way, is a facility for the PM industry in whichever way it can help the industry, individually or collectively," Nayar said. "My personal goal is make the person who is willing to learn, give them more power and if they are more powerful they are more confident and if they are more confident they can be more useful in whatever they are doing at their job. It's what I call empowering the people who make the decisions on the floors."
