Butter Bay Boss, Jerry Scarrow, on Innovation
Things take twice as long and cost twice what you expect. Moving from prototype to production is not as easy as one would think.
Be hands-on through every part of the process to get the outcome you desire. It’s been a ton of fun. Even if we failed I would do it again in a second!
Barack Obama, President of the United States of America
Here at Boise State innovation is a culture that you’re building. And your’re also partnering with companies to do two things – you help students graduate with skills that employers are looking for, and you help employees pick up the skills they need to advance on the job…it’s contributing to the economic development of the city and the state as well as being good for the students.
Carlyn Blake, Executive Director of Ūsful Glassworks
“I’m not an expert in manufacturing and I don’t have internally paid engineers to help solve manufacturing problems so I needed a resource that would truly listen to what we needed and then work with me on cost-effective solutions that would fit within my budget. Thank goodness TechHelp was there to help us when we needed it.”
Phil Johnson, Chairman & CEO, BHS Specialty Chemicals
Jeff and Heather did a great job of helping us meet our goal of becoming one of the few companies in our industry to be SQF 2000 Level II Certified for food-grade ingredient manufacturing, sanitation and distribution.
Al Youngwerth, Owner/Inventor/CEO, Rekluse Motorsports
Without TechHelp, Rekluse and the Z-Start Clutch would not exist.
Mark Melni, Inventor of the Melni Connector
“I wonder what Tesla or Edison might have done with a resource like the TechHelp New Product Development Team at Boise State. Without this great resource, the Melni Connector would still be just an idea in my head. They’re knowledgeable and provide a range of unique services at a decent price. It’s been a pleasure working with them! The ONLY source for true innovation in bringing our invention to market is the TechHelp NPD Lab at Boise State.”
Nathan McMasters, President, Formerly of Diversified Metal Products
“We appreciate all that TechHelp has done for us. Dave O’Connell has been a huge help! When we get this compressor system project behind us, we’ll have a conversation about lighting.”
Joe DeGano, Former Sales & Marketing Manager, Rekluse
Export Excellence opened our eyes to what we didn’t know and caused us to build a long-term export plan for Rekluse. The expertise and support we received is remarkable and the export resources available to us have exploded!
Mark Cahill Co-founder, The Lancair Company ( a division of Cessna Aircraft Corporation)
“Besides the obvious things excellent Lean training can do, what stood out most was that the LECP training class was more like a boot camp. Old habits were stripped away and replaced with new and improved habits learned through the practical hands on training methods incorporated in the class.”
Co-founder, The Lancair Company (now a division of Cessna Aircraft Corporation)
Dusty Standlee, Chief Operating Officer, Standlee Hay
“Lean Manufacturing has given Standlee Hay the tools to ensure competitiveness in the marketplace. It really helps you think outside of the box.”
Justin Wootan, Director of Operations, Quest Aircraft Company
Involving our core leaders and incorporating “hands on” real world lean projects with the classroom training was a great kick starter for us. And converted many non believers.
Scott Soule, Corporate Engineer, Trus Joist
I was most impressed by TechHelp’s flexibility and willingness to work with us to meet our needs. By making use of TechHelp’s ability to rapidly produce and test prototypes, we were able to move quickly from about a 65% level of product satisfaction to about a 95% level.
Marty Artis, President, FAMCO
We could have gone into shut down mode during the economic downturn but instead decided to pursue Lean initiatives that had been on the back burner for a while. Working with the TechHelp guys was great. By engaging our entire team, everyone felt a part of the improvement initiative which greatly improved morale.
Rick Anson, CEO, NUTRA-LIFE Inc.
As a lone inventor, I rely on TechHelp for the tools, knowledge and expertise needed to bring my ideas to life. The TechHelp NPD team at Boise State is fast, friendly, effective and affordable. The diverse team includes mechanical engineers, student engineers, and even an artist who bring lots of energy and original ideas to any project.
Steve Hanks, Owner & Co-Founder, High Country Fusion Company
The ExporTech Program gave us the time and resources needed to really focus on and succeed at export planning. Instead of just responding to random requests, we were able to analyse the entire world and proactively choose where, why and how we wanted to expand.
Danny Hiner, Production Manager, Quest Aircraft Company
“The 101 simulation exercise made me a believer. Having over 20 years of production experience, I am the kind of guy that says, show me. And they did. We are now on the path of lean…it’s definitely a journey too!”
Robert Grover, President, COO & CTO, PCS Edventures!
Export Excellence gave me the opportunity to develop working relationships with some of the top Export Professionals in Idaho and to fine tune our process for evaluating and developing export opportunities that will guide future export expansion activities of PCS.
Jim Glenn, President, Titan Spring & Former President of Idaho Aerospace Alliance
Two of my company’s (Titan Spring) managers went to a TechHelp Lean Manufacturing Workshop as skeptics and came back as fans. Gene Hamacher knows Lean and Aerospace Manufacturing having spent over a decade with Boeing as a Manufacturing Engineer. I promise, you will come away with valuable knowledge that you can put to use right away.
