Comments About Our Training

“Everyone in business today faces one common challenge: reduce the cost of labor! Those that don’t do it today are in jeopardy of not being in business tomorrow. Using outside consultants can be of great help, if the right one is selected. We believe we selected the right one, Industrial Timestudy Institute out of Akron, Ohio. We could not be more pleased with the results of the training and recommend it without reservation.” Director of Operations, Precision Dynamics.

“Time well invested. Being able to study our own operations was invaluable. We were able to address the every day situations that arise on our floor and have our questions answered by an experienced engineer/instructor. Methods analysis was extremely helpful in recognizing ways to improve production. Would definitely recommend this training.” Value Stream Manager, Bassett Furniture Company.
