"Because failure is not an option, Busche enlisted the assistance of Northeast Indiana Works in helping arrange customized training for our workers in CNC machining and industrial maintenance. Northeast Indiana Works was open to new ideas in the development of the training. Now, Busche employees who participated in the training have the opportunity to receive pay increases along with promotions for the enhanced skills and abilities they have achieved."
