Success Stories

Eastern Surfaces, Inc.

We have a three-day production window, and when material is late, the shop has to scramble. MRC helped us find ways we can get better info. on the front end and schedule appropriately.

Brian Rocca, President

Direct Wire and Cable Inc

MANTEC’s support during a critical transition allowed Direct to sustain manufacturing, improve our quality process, and establish a strong and stable quality department for the future. MANTEC provides excellent service and often provides insights for other areas to improve.

Wade Smith, Vice President of Operations

Astro Apparel Group

Our company turns to NEPIRC because of their experience. They are hands-on and work through implementing the solutions they suggest. The Executive Network in particular is something our region really needs– and from which my company has benefited greatly. There’s nothing else comparable at the local or regional level– nothing.

Ronald Daniels, Controller/CFO

Product Evaluation Systems

The opportunity to meet with NASA’s experts easily saved us 12–24 months in development time. The opportunity to participate in TechConnect substantially shortened our additive manufacturing learning curve. This helps not only our company but also benefits those companies that look to PES for guidance as they move through their own additive manufacturing learning curve.

Walt Moorhead, President

Nittany Paper Mills, Inc.

Through a resource at a sister center, IMC helped us identify a number of potential solutions, which I did not know existed for our specific industry. We were pleased with the level of diligence put forth in getting vendor responses to our needs specifically rather than just the sales pitch given by the vendors. This was great considering that as a small business we wear many hats, and this process can be dauntingly time consuming.

John Cottrill, Controller

Lasko Products Inc.

Our partnership with DVIRC, and in particular Jeff Kopenitz and Rush Johnson, has allowed our team to successfully meet the business and client challenges and grow our business in excess of 15% annually. Our people have demonstrated the confidence and skills to meet the challenges of today and lead us forward

John Fox, CEO, Air King Division

Franklin Industries Co

Lean Together has helped our employees realize that working together as a whole group, and gathering multiple ideas from each other, makes us a stronger and more productive team. As a result, multiple new production records have been set.

Debbie Neal, CFO
