After utilizing the Workforce Economic Development and Continuing Education (WEDCE) team at Rhodes State College, a satellite office of Ohio MEP, for an audit, Randall Bearings had this to say:

“I personally want to thank WEDCE for the continued support,” said Billy Mosley, quality manager, Randall Bearings. “Working with them helped us achieve our very important ISO 9001-2015 certification. It was a wonderful experience. Our auditor spent a great amount of time looking at our entire operation. He was very impressed with our company and how our Quality Management System was structured. The communication between our two sites was assessed as a great example of a well-managed operation. We thank WEDCE for all they did and would highly recommend their services to any company.”

After conducting an energy efficiency study through the Ohio MEP/CIFT services, Potash Corporation (PCS) indicated that installing a Variable Frequency Drive would result in an annual cost savings of $85,848 for PCS, based on a rate of seven cents per kilowatt hour. The payback period is between six months to one year.

“We greatly appreciate the opportunity given to us by CIFT,” said Todd Sutton, general manager, PCS. “Along with the technical expertise from the jdi group, CIFT helped us identify these improvements to our operations. CIFT’s team was great to work with and made the process easy for us to navigate.”
