trenton forging aims to
meet customers' one-stopshop supply needs.
To remain knowledgeable and up-todate on the latest technologies, Trenton Forging added a learning center to
its facility for continuing education.
"One of our core values at Trenton
Forging is to continuously improve
not only our facilities and equipment,
but more importantly our team members," the company says.
Built like a university classroom, the
learning center features three rows of
desk-style seating with enough ergonomic chairs to educate 12 people at a
time. The room captures a lot of natural light and offers birds-eye views of

this environment, an oversized,

"The learning center [is] utilized as
a place where members of our team
can attend continuing education-type
classes, seminars and online courses."
In addition to continuing education, Moxlow says he wants the learning center to focus on issues that its
team members see every day. "You
have to train people before you can set
expectations for them," he adds. "We
will focus on ongoing education and
specialty training for programming of
processors and things like that."
This spring, Trenton Forging
will host open houses for local high
schools to visit, hoping to build excitement around manufacturing.
Moxlow emphasizes that the company offers 100 percent reimbursement
for continuing education.
Moving forward, Trenton Forging
plans to continue to grow and become
more efficient. And as customers con-
tinue to look for one-stop-shop suppliers, Trenton Forging will continue
to enhance its services and capabilities as it makes sense for its business.
"Our goal is to give our customers a
complete solution, if possible," Moxlow says. mt
