Tooling U has relocated its headquarters to Tyler Village, a downtown redevelopment project in Cleveland, Ohio. The online manufacturing training developer has been seeking a location that would enable continued expansion since its acquisition by the Society for Manufacturing Engineers last fall. “Manufacturing is leading the recovery, and manufacturers are in greater need of training their employees,” says Chad Schron, Tooling U’s division manager. “In order to support Tooling U’s e-learning offerings, we needed to expand our brick and mortar offices.”
Formerly an industrial complex, Tyler Village is now a thriving, mixed-use business complex that the company says fits its growth needs. Located only 6 miles from Tooling U’s previous office, the 8,000-square-foot site has already facilitated the addition of more writers, support staff and customer success managers, which led to the launch of a new composites training curriculum.
Tooling U provides online classes in a variety of manufacturing topics for operators in the automotive, aerospace, defense, medical and oil and gas sectors. Classes are interactive, include both audio and video components and provide one-on-one, synchronous training, the organization says.
