Ritz-Craft, a provider of exceptional homes, recognized the importance of skilled craftsmen and quality products in meeting their customers’ needs. However, they faced a challenge of lacking skilled welders, which hindered their ability to ensure structural integrity. To address this, Michigan Works! Southeast identified the need for training and assisted Ritz-Craft by securing an Incumbent Worker Training grant. As a result, Ritz-Craft successfully trained four individuals in welding and visual inspection, creating a highly skilled welding team. The company now benefits from employees who possess greater confidence in their work and can apply their skills to other opportunities, highlighting the value of investing in their workforce.
