Our Emerald Avenue membership dues are paying for themselves over and over again! The EA is a great asset to the Southwest Michigan agritourism industry. Thanks to Kinexus for taking the lead on bringing the Emerald Avenue to life.
Ray Mays Owner, Ray's on the Green
I needed to hire 35-40 experienced restaurant employees. I called Kinexus and told them my hiring needs and that set the wheels in motion- from beginning to orientation, the process took less than three weeks. I'm pleased and overwhelmed with the level of service that I've received! I would highly recommend them.
David LaGrow Owner, Maximum Mold
Successful economic development now hinges on attracting the right kind of workers. Kinexus has been accomplishing this with its wide array of programs. Specifically, Kinexus recently dispatched a team of professionals to assist us with new ideas in the realms of Lean Manufacturing, 5S strategies, and ISO 9001 certification. Without their support it would have been a difficult path to certification. Kinexus has allowed us to look to the future of being a knowledge based company with highly skilled employees.
Bill Mach Owner, Mach Mold
Kinexus assisted us in training two of our newly hired apprentices. Both went through the Get SET training created by Kinexus. We were very happy with the outcome. Both of the individuals came to us with no practical experience. After the training they were able to come into the plant and start running the CNC machining centers with some confidence. They needed to continue to learn our processes and systems, but the training got them over the hurdle of having no idea what they were doing. To have this starting point saved us time and money that we had spend in the past to get people started. We intend to use the training and hire people who have completed this training in the future. Kinexus also provided project management training for our management, sales, and engineering groups. It helped us to improve our processes and we feel it was a huge benefit.
