Grimes Open House
Starting in the 1970's with less than 30 electrical apprentices, the ABC of Iowa Apprenticeship & Training Trust has grown to nearly 1,500 apprentices and over the past several years, the need for a larger training spaces has become increasingly evident. Since late 2016, ABC of Iowa Apprenticeship & Training Trust has relocated Hiawatha and Davenport's training facilities, and has added on 10,165 sq ft to the Grimes Training Facility.
This training facility was officially designated by the 2018-19 ABC
of Iowa Apprenticeship Trustees as the Michael G. McCoy Training Center.
Mike McCoy of ACI Mechanical, Inc. has spent the last 10 years showing absolute foresight and commitment
to the growth of ABC of Iowa's Chapter and Trust. Mike served as the
Board Chairman in 2009 and 2010, and currently serves as the Treasurer
of the Board of Directors, and as the Trustee Chair for ABC of Iowa's
Apprenticeship & Training Trust.
