Mide Technology Corporation
Mide and MassMEP, part of the MEP National Network™, have an ongoing relationship and meet periodically to identify additional training opportunities. Mide has been growing and leadership wanted to provide training that would complement that growth. Out of their ongoing relationship, Mide and MassMEP identified topics to apply for a MA Workforce Training Fund General Grant, intended to provide applicants with the resources to invest in the Massachusetts workforce, improve employee skills, and maintain the economic strength and viability of the Commonwealth’s businesses.
CPI Radant Technologies Division, Inc
For years CPI Radant had been a military supplier of radomes protective covers for a radar or other antenna systems. Approximately five years ago a new commercial market for radomes opened up when commercial airlines moved from ground-based antennae at the bottom of the plane to linking to satellites, which provide continuous signal, from the top of the plane to support in-flight entertainment. Moving into this commercial market meant that CPI Radant would need to reduce costs and generally become more efficient while growing at a fairly rapid pace.

Nye Lubricants Inc
Nye Lubricants had worked with MassMEP, part of the MEP National Network™, for a brief period of time in 2006. In 2017 Bernadette Ferreira, Director of Operations, was tasked with getting Nye back on the lean pathway. From its past training, Nye knew that lean could make everyone’s job easier; the key to that success would be to educate and train the staff. Bernadette reached out to MassMEP for help.
