Hudson Valley Community College and GlobalFoundries are creating a new training and apprenticeship center in Malta.

GlobalFoundries presented HVCC with a $500,000 check Thursday for the project.

It includes two components, renovations to the college’s current

TEC-SMART building and the expansion of a new STEM education center.

This comes just weeks after GlobalFoundries announced plans to build a new chip fab operation in Malta.

It’s expected to double the site’s capacity and create more than 1,000 new jobs.
