For nearly 40 years, Multicraft International has provided innovative solutions to established businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs in the areas of design and manufacturing, product development and commercialization, business consulting and strategic guidance, and capital formation. From start to finish, Multicraft is allowing successful products to enter the stream of commerce—and employing dozens of Mississippians to help with the task.

In August, Multicraft will begin a new partnership with Pelahatchie High School: the Innovation Academy. About fifteen 12th-grade students will enter into an Industrial Maintenance Technology certification program through Multicraft, receiving hands-on experience through paid internships during their senior year and summer shadowing. Graduates of the program may have the opportunity to enter into full-time employment with Multicraft after receiving their high school diploma.
