“NVIE has a great depth of experience and resources which played a large role in our expansion. Their support relative to training, incentives, and networking of partners can open up doors for new and existing companies. I strongly recommend engaging with NVIE to all Nevada manufacturers.”
– Anup Kolatkar, Plant Manager, GE Engine Services
GE Engine Services is affiliated with General Electric and performs the overhaul and remanufacture of locomotive traction motor and axle assemblies. The company is based in Las Vegas, Nevada with 70 employees.
GE Engine Services was expanding their workforce and needed assistance with their training of new employees. GE Engine Services needed a partner that had an experienced network in Nevada to utilize. They contacted NVIE, a NIST MEP affiliate.
NVIE’s industrial experience and strong partnerships with state and local entities proved invaluable in solving GE’s concerns. NVIE worked with local authorities and the Plant Manager, Anup Kolatkar, to work through difficult applications for the incentives for their expansion NVIE was successful in providing and sourcing training funds from Train Employees Now through the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
The results of working with NVIE enabled GE Engine Services to streamline and hire employees and provide training to the employees. Through this support, GE was also able to reduce the delays in training time.
