Tru Simulation + Training

Tru Simulation at Suncoast Crossings

By the end of 2018, Tru Simulation has 199 employees and the Training Center revenue and sales have nearly doubled since their initial estimate (3 years ago) to $24 million!  In addition, Tru Simulation has been a fantastic partner in career placement for students finishing their AmSkills and CareerSource training and job placement programs.
Tru's property appraiser's assessed value has increased more than 73% since the expansion.

In 2016, the projected economic benefits of Tru Simulation expanding was direct employment of 161 new employees, bringing a cumulative annual wage of $18.5 million, and $30 million in annual sales.  In addition, the induced effects of the project were estimated at 321 additional jobs in Pasco County. Combined, all of these jobs would generate an average of $47.7 million annually in Gross County Product (GCP).
