New ITI Training Center in Cleveland - Mazzella Companies to Partner

First courses scheduled for April 2016

Cleveland, Ohio – January 19, 2016 – Industrial Training International and the Mazzella Companies have agreed to partner on a permanent training center location at Mazzella’s Cleveland, Ohio Headquarters at 21000 Aerospace Parkway. The Cleveland Training Center will be the fifth North American training center for ITI, along with locations in Woodland, Washington, Memphis, Tennessee, Anchorage, Alaska and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The newest facility is strategically located adjacent to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and will no doubt be a benefit to the heavy industries in the north eastern part of the United States. 

The Mazzella Companies are well known in the crane, rigging, and load-handling industries for providing ideal lifting solutions, both products and services, including all styles of slings, overhead cranes, hoists, and engineered lifting devices. “We are very excited to work with Mazzella,” said Zack Parnell, President, ITI. “Our family-operated companies have worked together for over 20 years, and we are proud to place our brand next to theirs as we grow in the region.”Mazzella__ITI
