Industrial Training International Opens Canadian Subsidiary
Industrial Training International announces it will open a subsidiary in Edmonton, Alberta. ITI Canada will include local management, trainers, and supporting administration that will work in the Edmonton office and conduct business throughout Canada. ITT will continue to handle sales, marketing, design, and logistics functions out of its corporate headquarters in Woodland, Wash.
“We are excited to be taking this step in our company’s growth,” said Mike Parnell, ITI president/CEO. “The first Master Rigger Course was actually conducted in Canada over 20 years ago. We have been training in Canada for a long time, as well as countries in South America, Africa, Asia and Europe. However, this is our company’s first step in operating outside of the United States.”
ITI, a privately-held company, has seen revenue growth of 18 percent over the last year and has leveraged its exceptional field and office staff to produce new programs in advanced rigging as well as multiple e-learning courses. ITI has added multiple positions to its team over the last year and is looking to do the same in Canada.
“We plan on hiring several trainers based in Edmonton, as well as other cities in Canada,” Parnell said. “Also, we will be on the lookout for a highly-qualified person to become ITI Canada’s Managing Director that can spearhead the operation in Edmonton.”
