Dale Rogers Training Center and Pelco Products have reached a milestone; they celebrated their 10 year partnership in October.
Pelco opened in 1985 and quickly became the largest manufacturer of traffic signal hardware in the United States, currently serving 50 states nationally and 14 countries worldwide. In an effort to both reduce costs and improve productivity, Pelco sought DRTC’s Mobile Workforce. Beginning with 5 different traffic and streetlight kits in 2002, the Mobile Workforce has now contributed to the construction of over 60 different types of hardware kits. Many of the lights you will see near the new Project 180 in downtown Oklahoma City, are products of Pelco.
Utilizing Pelco’s lean “just-in-time” assembly processes, the Mobile Workforce has provided around 108,000 operating man hours over the past 10 years and has been instrumental in improving product turnaround time and manufacturing efficiency.
Pelco has been a wonderful partner over the past 10 years, this summer they constructed two signs to recognize the contributions of the DRTC assembly team, making the workers feel appreciated as a part of Pelco. To show our gratitude for the wonderful 10 year anniversary milestone, DRTC presented Pelco with a plaque made by individuals at Prism Place, along with our new Boot Kickin’ BBQ set and our White Hat Southwest Dip mix. The individuals who travel weekly to work at Pelco also prepared a signed card as part of the presentation.
Pelco also recently placed a large order of 175 of our new BBQ spice sets for their holiday gifts to their customers! DRTC is proud of our partnership with Pelco Products and looks forward to continuing to grow with them in the future.
