Terry is referring to amenities like an on-site cafe and a gym with a professional trainer on hand.  

Kevin Tummins has been working at the plant for about seven months. His training took him all the way to Japan. He's a coil group assembly tech and he admits, it's a challenging job.

"I've always been attracted to challenges and this seems to be the biggest one in my career, training new employees, the cultural differences we deal with is amazing," he says.
