Workforce Challenge

Joliet Equipment Corporation sells, services, and repairs large traction and drilling motors. The company needed to provide refresher training in motor repair for its employees.

Workforce Solution

The Workforce Investment Board of Will County provided Incumbent Worker funding that enabled 20 employees to receive training.
Industry-specific training was provided from the Electrical Apparatus Service Association of St. Louis, MO to help maintain competitiveness with companies located outside of Will County. Training included one day of training by Fundamentals of DC Motors; a half-day training of Root Cause: Winding and Rotor Failures; and a half-day training of Root Cause: Bearing and Shaft Failures for 20 mechanics, machinists, winders, parts cleaners, and maintenance staff.

Additional fork lift training was provided from Midway Material Handling of Carol Stream, IL for eight (8) mechanics, machinists, winders, parts cleaners and maintenance personnel.

Outcomes & Benefits

"The two-day motor repair program resulted in a better understanding of motor repair analysis (the core of our business) as well as serving as a valuable refresher course for certain long-term employees. The forklift program has resulted in a better understanding of forklift safety and maintenance. This training opportunity proved to be invaluable,” states Rande Taylor, Controller of Joliet Equipment Corporation.
