WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA -- MTI Systems, Inc. announced their country-wide initiative offering educational institutions significant discounts on their flag ship product Costimator, a cost-estimating, quoting and process planning software tool for manufacturers.
“Manufacturing initiatives, emerging at an increasing rate, indicate the growing concern to help bring more manufacturing jobs back to America. Without an actively growing job market, the future of U.S. manufacturing could remain on the decline. For more than a decade, manufacturers have also continued to experience a reduced pool of adequately skilled candidates from which to select for hire”, states Jay Snow, Marketing Manager at MTI Systems, Inc. “Our manufacturing customers tell us, if colleges could take the initiative to train students on the software used by their manufacturing company, these new employees would be that much further ahead of other candidates. Also, as these programs are developed and implemented successfully more students will view manufacturing as a growing lucrative career option.”
“While we’ve always thought educators could help our manufacturing customers, we’ve recently identified the need to offer assistance to the nation as it relates to manufacturing, and we are committed to offering this incredibly worthwhile program to the mix”, remarks David LaJoie, Vice President of MTI Systems, Inc. “Now with the continued development of new programs and increasing efforts being applied to improving todays engineering workforce we feel confident our participation will help increase the competitiveness for U.S. manufacturing.”
MTI Systems, Inc. is supporting the manufacturing initiatives by offering educational institutions, including community colleges, universities, and technical schools, a significant discount. This program will supply a classroom license helping to meet the needs of the institutions student training requirements. It will also include initial training to the educational institution and an annual support and maintenance contract.
