Our Community Matters
Giving back to the community that has given us so much.
How Can We Partner?

Building a Strong Community for Columbus, GA

Oneda Corporation is proud to be affiliated with local and state organizations with the common goals of helping to grow manufacturing, businesses, and jobs in Georgia. The community of Columbus, Georgia, has supported us since we opened the Oneda Corporation USA plant in 1989. As we continue to grow our custom metal stamping, assembly, and tool and die operations, we feel an innate need to give back to the organizations that have helped us over the years.

Our partners are an extended part of our family. Contact us to partner with the Oneda team.

Columbus Technical College

Columbus Technical College’s Drafting and Tool & Die apprenticeship programs promote local trade education opportunities. As part of a partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor, they offer students a learning and earning opportunity, where they work full-time in an industrial/trade occupation and attend classes on a part-time basis. Once the apprenticeship is completed, students are awarded a certificate showcasing the specialized training received in a particular occupation. Over the past 10 years, Oneda has had the privilege of hosting six students through this program, hiring 100% of them for full-time jobs after graduation. For more information, visit the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) website.

Southeastern Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (SETAAC)

The SETAAC program out of Georgia Tech provides grant assistance to manufacturing companies in the Southeast that have been impacted by import competition. Through this initiative, Oneda was able to conduct research, develop, design, and install a customized, automated welding machine. Additionally, we were able to create a full assembly operation, train die shop team members on advanced programming skills, and tap into marketing resources to rebuild our website, improve our social media presence, and create quality content.
