Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc.(FFNA), a leading provider of IT-based business solutions, including advanced technology products, biometric security, and digital media solutions, today announced the commitment of a recurring annual scholarship fund at the Champlain Valley Technical Education Center (CV-TEC) to help develop an enhanced curriculum centered on supply chain and logistics. The Scholarship will be presented at the Plattsburgh International Airport today coinciding with FedEx’s donation of one of its Boeing 727 aircraft to the Plattsburgh Aeronautical Institute (PAI) which is operated by CV-TEC.

CV-TEC is the premier provider of Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Adult Literacy Education in the region. With an eye on the continued development of a highly-trained and qualified workforce to meet the growing demand from companies like Fujitsu that have selected Plattsburgh for their relocation or expanded operations, CV-TEC will enhance its Transportation, Distribution and Logistics Educational Programs. These focus areas are significant for those employers who rely on this specialized expertise in their operations.

“Beginning in September, Fujitsu Frontech North America will work with CV-TEC to award the scholarship to deserving candidates,” said Yoshi Masuda, President of Fujitsu Frontech North America. “In establishing this Scholarship, we have fulfilled one of our commitments to the Plattsburgh community. It is our hope that with this scholarship and the other generous support provided to the PAI and CV-TEC, we will see many well-qualified individuals enter the workforce for many years to come. We are proud to support CV-TEC and its students.”

CV-TEC offers a diversity of program and focus areas, including Architecture & Construction, Arts, Audio, Video Technology and Communications, Business, Health Science, Hospitality, Information Technology, Manufacturing among many more. In 2009, CV-TEC initiated an FAA-approved, Part 147 Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) Aviation Technology Program, which is the central program of the PAI. CV-TEC operates the PAI at the former CommutAir facility in Plattsburgh.

“CV-TEC is very appreciative of the scholarship fund commitment from Fujitsu. We are eagerly looking forward to working with them and to their support in developing enhanced programs that meet the needs of our area employers,” said Dr. James McCartney III, principal of the CV-TEC satellite campus that houses the institute and other CV-TEC programs. “Giving our local students as much competitive advantage in their education and specialized training means the region can continue on the path of attracting global business partners, like Fujitsu.”
