Augusta Tech’s even larger automotive method revving up in 2023

3 min read

By early upcoming year, Augusta Tech’s new automotive technological know-how campus will transform a previous Walton Way auto dealership into a simulated studying natural environment.  

The school ceremonially recognized a $1 million donation for the job – at first declared in April – from Columbia, S.C.-centered Jim Hudson Automotive Team, whose 10 dealership areas include 3 in Augusta. 

“Anybody can promote a vehicle,” corporation founder and principal Jim Hudson explained in the showroom of his Lexus dealership on Washington Street. “It normally takes a genuinely very good technician to retain it bought.” 

What was not disclosed in April was in which the automotive technological innovation campus would be positioned. Augusta Tech not long ago procured the previous Johnson Motor Co., a Cadillac seller that shut its area in 2021 at the edge of the city’s Laney-Walker neighborhood.

Johnson Motor Co., which closed in the summer of 2021, sits empty on Walton Way in Augusta on June 22. The former Cadillac dealership will be the home of Augusta Tech's expanded automotive technology campus.

Hudson’s $1 million, coupled with a separate $1 million donation from Augusta National Golf Club also declared in April, will fund a great deal of the development and renovation costs to entire the new campus by the conclusion of the yr, Tech President Dr. Jermaine Whirl said. 

A rising task market place

The growth of Tech’s automotive application comes at a time when in-demand repair service personnel are anticipated to have bigger ability sets to conduct work on significantly technologically-state-of-the-art vehicles. Electric and hybrid cars will be amongst the emerging technologies examined in bigger depth at Tech.
