CLEVELAND, OH- Tooling U, the leading developer of online manufacturing training, has relocated its headquarters to Tyler Village - one of Cleveland's largest-ever downtown redevelopment projects.

Following the Society of Manufacturing Engineer’s acquisition of Tooling U last fall, a search began for a new location that allowed for continued expansion.

“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.”

Located six miles from Tooling U’s previous office, Tyler Village, a former industrial complex and now a thriving, mixed-use business complex, fit the needs of the growing company.

"Our bread and butter is manufacturing. We like the story that we've repurposed this space for a high-tech application," says Schron. “We like the unique atmosphere, and the location is still accessible for our employees.”

The 8,000-square-foot site has already enabled Tooling U to add additional writers, support staff and customer success managers, which led to the launch of a new composites training curriculum.

Tooling U provides training for operators in the automotive, aerospace, defense, medical and oil and gas sectors. It also works with corporations such as General Electric, Caterpillar and Harley Davidson, as well as small and mid-sized companies and technical and community colleges. Tooling U allows operators to take classes 24/7 in a host of manufacturing topics. Classes are interactive, include both audio and video components and provide one-on-one, synchronous training.
