Ohio Technical College Recognized as One of Northeast Ohio’s Fastest-Growing Companies

For the second year in a row, Ohio Technical College – a provider of specialized technical training in a wide variety of transportation fields, including collision repair – has been awarded the Weatherhead 100 Award by Case Weatherhead School of Management and The Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE).

The 2009 Weatherhead 100 Award recognizes the 100 fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio based on their sales from 2004-2008. Ohio Technical College (OTC) had a 91-percent growth rate this year, placing 66 out of 100 companies on the list.

"We are excited to receive the Weatherhead 100 award as it demonstrates our continued commitment to providing quality education for tomorrow’s professional technicians," said Tom King, director of enrollment management, OTC. "The honor is a wonderful finale to a banner year for the students and faculty at Ohio Technical College as we celebrated both the school’s 40th anniversary as well as our recognition as the 2009 Tomorrow’s Technician/Chicago Pneumatic School of the Year."
To be eligible for the award, companies also must have net sales over $1 million and have a minimum of 16 full-time employees in 2009. OTC’s enrollment grew 22.2 percent in 2009, while the staff of full-time employees expanded from 170 to 197.
Ohio Technical College first held classes in 1969 as the Ohio Diesel Mechanics School, conducting six-week courses in Cleveland’s Warehouse District. Today, students at Ohio Technical College can choose from more than 20 specialized technician training programs in automotive, motorcycle, diesel equipment, collision repair and refinishing, custom paint and graphics, classic car restoration, high performance and racing, alternative fuel vehicles, power generator systems, welding and BMW training.
