CICB & ORBIT Industrial Sign Strategic Alliance Agreement
CICB opens their third US training center in Phoenix, AZ in collaboration with ORBIT Industrial
CICB and ORBIT Industrial Service & Maintenance are delighted to announce today the signing of a strategic alliance agreement. This alliance includes the opening of CICB’s third training center at ORBIT’s headquarters in Glendale, AZ.
Headquartered in Houston, TX, with a second training center in Orlando, FL, CICB continues to grow both domestically and abroad. With the addition of a third training center in Phoenix, CICB has increased its reach to the west coast.
Camille Singletary, CICB’s Open Enrollment Manager, noted the advantage to CICB’s extensive customer base. “For many years now, we have offered open enrollment classes at various locations in the area. To be able to schedule regular training in the Phoenix, AZ area is a huge win for our clients.”
CICB offers training and other services across the United States and globally, onsite at its client’s facilities, at their established training centers in Houston and Orlando, or at partner venues nationwide on an ad hoc basis. ORBIT provides inspections, training, repairs, parts, and sales of overhead cranes, hoists, mobile cranes, automotive lifts, dock components, mezzanines, stairs, and fall protection systems in the Arizona, California, and Nevada area.
Christopher Oehl, ORBIT’s CEO and Owner, commented on the opportunities presented by this strategic alliance. “We are delighted to open up our facility to CICB in this way. Our commitment to the local community here in Phoenix, and to safe crane operations anywhere means this was a natural fit. In the end we are all just crane guys and brothers of the hook, and as a community, we need to educate the next generation of operators and inspectors coming in the same way we did. ORBIT Industrial welcomes in any and all that want to become the best through CICB’s training curriculum”.
CICB will be providing many of their 50-plus course offerings at their new training center in the Phoenix, Arizona area. These will include preparation for CCO certification for Riggers, Signal Persons, Overhead Crane Operators and Inspectors, as well as CICB’s programs for Mobile Elevated Work Platforms, Rigging, Mobile Cranes and Overhead Cranes, including Train the Trainer courses.
Christina Epperson, CICB’s President & CEO, explained that CICB and ORBIT have been working together for many years. “ORBIT has been an incredible host for multiple CICB classes over the last decade. Instructors and students alike consistently comment on the welcome they receive there and the quality of the facility. Chris and his team are a genuine pleasure to work with and so we are very happy indeed to formalize this alliance.”
