Meet Patton Sales Corporation

Workforce Challenge

Patton Sales Corporation, a steel service center and manufacturer based in Ontario, has expanded its business. Two years ago, Patton Sales Corporation was in danger of laying off employees. They realized they needed to diversify their business, but funds for the necessary new equipment, employees, and training were in short supply.

Workforce Solution

The Workforce Investment Board of San Bernardino County contacted Patton Sales Corp about an On-the-Job Training program, which would reimburse the company for a portion of a new hire’s wages during a specified training period. The Workforce Investment Board would also help recruit the new employees.

Patton Sales hired eight people through the On-the-Job training program. The money saved through this program gave the company the confidence to make capital investments in equipment that would help the company grow. Two years later, Patton Sales Corporation has announced its expansion, where it opened a 15,000 square foot facility that employs six people.

Outcomes & Benefits

Patton Sales also hired three more staff members in Ontario as drivers and administrative staff to support the new location.

“Without the help of the Workforce Investment Board, we would not be where we are now,” said Patton Sales Corp. “The programs helped us avoid layoffs and save more than 20 jobs. We eventually were able to expand our business, and we hired eight people through On-the-Job Training programs offered by the Workforce Investment Board.”
