Workforce Challenge

Zephyr Tool Group designs and manufactures assembly and fastener installation tools for the aerospace industry. The company struggles to find qualified personnel to run their CNC, grinding and heat treat machines.

Workforce Solution

In partnership with the South Bay Workforce Investment Board, the company now participates in the Bridge-to-Manufacturing program, where machinist interns are able to shadow experienced machinists at Zephyr. The company is also a part of the manufacturing sector work group.

Outcomes & Benefits

As a result of the partnership, 18 interns gained valuable work experience and Zephyr hired some of the interns for full-time employment. Zephyr continues to participate in the internship program and more students are expected to gain valuable skills, and be hired as a result.
