What Are CMTC's Clients Saying?
When Dynamic Fabrication Inc. (DFI) needed a solution to improve their product quality and on-time delivery, they partnered with CMTC to create a training curriculum that would align with the company’s focus areas: customer requirements and continuous improvement. CMTC consultants delivered 40 hours of blueprint reading training to 17 employees and helped DFI access California Employment Training Panel (ETP) funds to offset the training costs. As a result, DFI estimates cost savings of $750,000 over a 12-month period, enabling investments of $100,000 in new products and processes and $15,000 in plant and equipment improvements. In addition, DFI designated another $24,000 of investment for employee learning and development.
Custom cabinetry manufacturer Reborn Cabinets' number one core value is to build a winning team. Over the years, Reborn has instituted a culture of training and support for their employees to work together and achieve more both in their personal and professional lives. However, Reborn recognized there were certain areas of training in which they could benefit from some outside expertise, so they engaged with CMTC to implement a formal leadership training program. Since then, Reborn and CMTC have worked together on numerous projects, forming a true partnership and helping to nurture Reborn's culture of training and advancement.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. in March 2020, Sewing Incubator had just begun operations. Faced with product cancellations, Sewing Incubator quickly realized the need to diversify manufacturing and establish sound financial reporting systems in order to survive. CMTC partnered with Sewing Incubator to help them register with the System for Award Management (SAM), obtain a CAGE Code, connect with government PPE purchasers, create a formal accounting system for the company, and evaluate a comprehensive list of the company’s existing accounting practices to identify opportunities for process improvement. Sewing Incubator credits its survival through the pandemic to CMTC, and estimates $1,000,000 in sales revenue, cost savings of $50,000 in labor, and an investment of $100,000 in new products. In addition, the increased visibility due to increased financial reporting is expected to lead to $50,000 in avoided investments.
American manufacturing, once seen as the world’s icon of industrialization and then as a symbol of decline, is once again changing.
