The Jan. 28 edition of the Litchfield Independent Review ran a story about Dunwoody Custom Training training four Litchfield area manufacturers to be able to do their own repairs of their equipment, especially PLC units (Programmable Logic Controller). The course was put together in collaboration with the Litchfield Chamber of Commerce.
Barb Obershaw, the Dunwoody Custom Training account executive who help put together the class, explained: “This is not our typical approach. Typically, you go in and work with one company. We decided that because they were all Chamber members, this would help spread the cost of the training over four bisnesses and make it much more cost effective for them. We’re proud of this model, and this is a model we intend to use in other communities, as well.”
The companies anticipate that the PLC training will save them quite a bit of money since previously they had to pay for technicians to fly in from out-of-state to do many of their repairs.
