Able Industrial Products

Workforce Challenge

With business on the rebound, Able Industrial Products was looking for new employees. They needed to hire people in shipping, receiving and in the utility division, where workers sort, clean and package parts for shipping. Owner Gilbert Martinez reached out to the county unemployment office. He was very impressed with the immediate callback, connecting him to the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board.

Workforce Solution

Before the end of the day, a WIB representative visited Able with prescreened applicant resumes. The WIB representative also recommended the On-the-Job Training program to help offset training costs.

Outcomes & Benefits

Able Industrial Products hired six workers through the WIB’s On-the-Job Training program, which paid half the workers’ salaries for the first three months on the job.
