IP Tech is a collegiate-type training program for Interprint customers and other industry participants. The program corresponds with the three major areas of Interprint's business: design, manufacturing and quality control. The school (the first of its kind in the industry) engages participants in "hands-on" workshops in labs and on the plant floor, at least three times a day.
“They get experience in mixing pigment and doing 'draw-downs' to get a color,” says Interprint Managing Director William M. Hines, Jr. “They also learn the intricacies of our decorative rotogravure printing process, complete with an introduction to our new laser-engraving facility.”
The program is taught solely by IP employees who do the actual work on the floor. The sessions have resulted in rave reviews for these “homegrown” instructors who also benefit from the program. "It provides an opportunity for our employees to learn about themselves – and for them to learn about each other," says Hines. “It takes a lot of teamwork to make this product exactly right for each customer."
