Our emphasis has always been ‘safety first’, and with assistance from NWIRC, Sturgeon Consulting provided our plants and employees additional direction in the Master Safety Plan. We are assured of meeting all compliances while at the same time we have been able to lower our costs. It’s been a great program.
We know how to develop solutions to your challenges, maximize your management initiative efforts, and drive project results through our advisors and consultants! Here’s what client’s think:
We appreciate the support that NWIRC provides to the region. Their apprentice program provided us a valuable candidate whose work will allow us to grow our business, better manage our costs, and improve through-put. Their service allowed us to find a highly qualified candidate in a short amount of time.
The NWIRC has been a great partner and has given us more information than other agencies in NW PA. They supported our efforts to establish a greater web presence and increase our customer count. They are true professionals with very fast response times and get it right the first time by truly listening to their clients.
This kind of technology will attract more young people into manufacturing. If our company didn’t keep up with technology we’d be out of business in less than ten years. The assistance of the NWIRC helped to solidify our direction and assisted in the pursuit and implementation of our new technology.
The Northwest Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center has been a valuable partner and very supportive of our strategic business planning and growth efforts. CORE Value is a great tool to complement that strategy.
The assistance that the NWIRC team brought to the table provided us with an infusion of new sales opportunities and skills.
The NWIRC and their affiliated consultants were able to provide domain knowledge for our consideration within our strategic planning and new product development. Not only will we develop short term tests and developmental research based on their findings, we will consider utilizing their services for further technology exploration.
The NWIRC was instrumental in identifying the best management consultants and economic development partners available in the region. We ultimately were able to gain quality project proposals for our procurement consideration and we learned a lot in the process. They even introduced us to another complementary plastics manufacturer with an established presence in Asia for possible co-location and partnership opportunities.
Viking appreciates the cooperation between the NWIRC, PennTAP, and the USDA to help identify and support the investment in improving our energy efficiency. All the partners were professional and easy to work with. We would recommend this program to other manufacturers.
The NWIRC has been a great partner and very helpful with our efforts at reducing costs and helping develop appropriate KPIs to monitor our team performance.
