Resourcemfg Solves Welder Shortage

By: Thomas Cutler

ResourceMFG, a manufacturing support organization, and Welder Testing Inc., have formed a partnership to help manufacturing companies get the skilled employees they need, including welders. The partnership was developed to offer job-specific training to welders that enable the welder to upgrade his or her skills and qualify for open positions with manufacturers in the Houston area. Client specific training programs are also made available as an option for companies who need welders trained in their processes and specific welding procedures.
Manufacturing Journalist Thomas R. Cutler profiled the role of ResourceMFG in supplying welders in the current issue of Manufacturing.net. The entire article can be read at http://manufacturing.net/article/CA6398409.html?text=cutler.

"This partnership combines ResourceMFG's expertise in recruiting and WTI's expertise in qualifying and training welders. This will offer manufacturers another option when it comes to hiring qualified welders," noted Drew Rathburn of ResourceMFG. Manufacturers provide a qualified weld procedure and candidates apply, interview and weld test for multiple opportunities, all in one stop. Clients do not spend their time and resources on continually testing applicants at their facility.

According to John Johnston of ResourceMFG, "Our recruiters were finding experienced welders, but they might take a weld test in a process they were not familiar with at their previous job and fail the weld test. Sending a welder to our clients that produced a failing result was not acceptable anymore. Clients and candidates were becoming frustrated by this process. We had to find a way to improve our service and offer training to good candidates that just need some skills training in order to succeed at a new job."
