Over the past few months, CTG Asia employees, Double Zhou, Peter Liu and Blue Shen visited the United States to train with team members from our Cincinnati and New York divisions. All three spent time at both locations, learning from the US engineering and manufacturing teams. They were able to collaborate and work together with US employees on current projects. When the time came to travel back to China, Double commented, "During the last 3 months of training, all of the engineering and manufacturing people taught and helped us very much. The engineering department arranged wonderful training for us. We appreciate your great help and support to aid in CTG Asia's growth!" Ransohoff and Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics would like to say, "thanks" to Double, Peter and Blue for coming to visit!

When the March tornadoes ravaged parts of the South and Midwest, leveling small towns throughout Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky, Ransohoff employees began looking for a way to help the victims. Through both employee and company donations, Ransohoff was able to raise $3,500 for the Neediest Kids of All. The NKOA, founded in 1952, collects and disburses funds to children around the Greater Cincinnati tri-state area and has helped over 174,649 children within the last decade.
