Prior to joining ITI, Jim worked for over 24 years for a regional industrial supplier that specialized in wire rope, rigging equipment and overhead cranes. During that time, he was instrumental in the business development of on site inspections, repair and fabrication of the EOT cranes. The explosive growth revealed the need for training to inspect, operate and maintain the cranes and rigging gear efficiently.
