What do local industry partners say about the NCI Center of Advanced Manufacturing?
"NCI is an incredible resource for my company. NCI’s Center of Advanced Manufacturing will allow our business to grow as we leverage their partners for advanced technologies. Working with the Center and NCI we will be designing new products from scratch, prototyping, manufacturing, and then installing these products in our shop.”
-Peter Basica, JP Superior Solutions
“We are thinking about purchasing a CNC machine to produce service parts to help meet our farming needs. Being able to receive specialized one-on-one training with an instructor at NCI on a Saturday, was incredible. The instructor showed us how to take our product from concept to reality. NCI’s Center of Advanced Manufacturing is a wonderful training facility. Their technology program will enable us to make great strides in R&D and take our business to the next level.”
-Keith Jackson, Mountain Valley Organics
“Thanks to New College Institute, there is no need for us to outsource manufacturing to other states and countries when we can train and use Haas Automation, Inc. machines for R&D at NCI’s Center of Advanced Manufacturing. There are two big savings for us - compressing the R&D cycle and giving us an inexpensive ability to test the market. Another benefit is the skill level our employees gain.”
-Eric Hruza, A2 Speed
