GED Service Center Celebrates Training Milestone

Twinsburg, OH ⎯ October 1, 1999 | The Training Department of GED’s Service Center reached a major milestone the week of March 30th – the 100th Intercept® Training Class. Eleven employees from the following companies were in attendance for this event:

  • Harvey Industries, Manchester, NH
  • Kinro, Nampa, ID
  • United Window, Canada
  • Summit Windows & Patio Doors, Lathrop, CA
  • Edge Seal Technologies, Walton Hills, OH
  • H. B. Fuller

Since inception of the first training class, the Operator Training Course for the Intercept Frame Machine in November 1994, 655 students from over 132 different customer sites have been trained through GED’s technically advanced 24,000 square foot training center. The program has grown to include five additional courses including a Basic Maintenance Course for the Intercept Frame Machine, an Extruder/Hot Melt Pump/Desiccant Station Maintenance Training Course, a Cutting System Basic Maintenance Training Course, and a seminar on GED’s proprietary WinSystem 1® software. All of these courses provide “hands-on” training on fully operational product lines to optimize student’s productivity.

Increased productivity, reduced scrap and waste, and higher profitability are just a few of the ways your operation will profit from these training classes. Francis McCarville, an employee of United Windows in Canada and a student of the 100th Intercept class, sums it up best by saying, “What I’ve learned in one week will benefit me and United Window for years to come.”
