Advanced Manufacturing

Helping companies that make things, make things better

All manufacturing businesses have one fundamental quality in common: You make things.

There’s one essential advantage Quick Start delivers for all of its manufacturing clients: We help you make things better.

The key is selecting and training the best-qualified workforce for your specific industry sector. That’s what Quick Start does for manufacturers that are creating new jobs in

Georgia or that are investing in new technology to stay competitive in a challenging and rapidly evolving economy.

 

Today’s manufacturing workforce must have the right combination of technical skills, work ethic and motivation, as well as a commitment to continuous improvement, if they are to succeed in the 21st century manufacturing environment. If they succeed, you succeed.

Your success is Quick Start’s goal.

Caterpillar

Caterpillar

Caterpillar is a  global best-in class technology and manufacturing company with $47 billion in revenues, home to the familiar "CAT" logo.

 

When Caterpillar selected northeast Georgia for its new manufacturing plant, Quick Start stepped up immediately to partner and make their business decision the right decision.

Step one was to refurbish a building owned by Athens Technical College.

 

That building became a simulated work environment that mirrored Cat's processed. We installed welding equipment just like what Cat employees would use on the job. 

Cat launched with a team that was ready to hit the floor working and meet the company's long-term goals. 

Toyo Tire

No matter the road, Toyo Tires being out the best in sports cars, luxury sedans, light trucks, SUVs, CUVs and commercial trucks. 

In June 2004, Toyo chose Bartow County in northeast Georgia as its US manufacturing base. Getting the plant up and running required 400 trained workers.

Quick Start was proud to play a role by providing technical training and tools. 

With our help in advanced technical training and tools, Toyo was able to achieve profitability within 18 months of opening. 

Toyo says Quick Start training shortened the learning curve. "A big part of our successful startup has been because of Quick Start's help. What Quick Start has done for us is phenomenal."
