Jason Premo and Co-owner Sean Witty of ADEX Machining Technologies first heard about readySC™ from the Chamber of Commerce and Greenville Technical College. “It’s challenging for small companies to work on a lot of the internal development needed because we don’t have a lot of the internal resources or the budgets of a typical Fortune 500 company,” Premo acknowledged. “So in learning what readySC™ has to offer, we’ve been leveraging the resources they provide for free to companies like ourselves, in training our leadership team, for our associates on the factory floor, to help offset the cost of hiring new high-skilled employees. There’s a lot of cost involved, and readySC™ has helped us grow and actually create more jobs faster than we would have on our own.”
“It’s helped us hire more aggressively than we would have been able to on our own because of some of the financial offsets that readySC™ is able to do to reimburse and incent companies like us to grow," says Premo.
ADEX, which stands for Aerospace, Defense and Energy Excellence, focuses on the emerging markets that inspired its name. “These markets employ use of more advanced materials,” said Premo. “They require high tech technology and a more highly skilled workforce. They represent an opportunity for continued growth while a lot of other industries are challenged with off-shoring.”
