Felix Storch Inc. Completes Specialized Training Program for Company Staff

June 4, 2010, Bronx, NY--Felix Storch Inc. congratulates its staff on graduating from a yearlong training program with NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS). For the second year in a row, employees of SUMMIT Appliance participated in on-site training with weekly courses in a broad curriculum.

"We viewed this opportunity as an investment, both in our individual employees and our whole company's growth," said Paul Storch, Vice President of Felix Storch Inc. "An educated workforce helps us improve every aspect of our day-to-day output because each employee has the skills to contribute more efficiently."

Over the past year, production, warehouse, and customer service staff members studied industry-specific subjects that included lean manufacturing and quality control. Employees also worked to improve their language and math skills, taking classes in ESL and remedial to advanced mathematics. Sixty-four employees participated in both traditional classroom activities and more hands-on training including hipot testing and forklift safety.

The program was funded by a $242,919 grant from NYC Business Solutions Training Funds, which was matched by a $202,750 employer contribution. SBS is dedicated to keeping local businesses competitive while providing entry-level workers with career advancement opportunities.

With an extensive product line that requires precise in-house customization, SUMMIT Appliance has a special demand for skilled employees in the mechanical field. "We do our best to keep as much production in the city as possible, resulting in minimal lead time and faster deliveries," adds Storch. "The more rounded our employees are, the better we can provide for our customers."
