JAMESTOWN - Jamestown Business College (JBC) students recently left the walls of their classroom behind to tour TitanX, an international supplier of medium and heavy duty diesel engine cooling solutions.
As part of the visit, students from JBC's Global Business Perspectives class received a first-hand look into how a Jamestown-based plant conducts business across national borders to meet customer needs and demands.
TitanX Human Resources Director, Andrew Johnson, provided students with a brief orientation followed by a tour and presentation on the company's international operations. He also showed students TitanX's quality control test equipment that puts their products through real-life environments.

"Our customers bring us their problems, and we find solutions to resolve those problems," Johnson said.
JBC Instructor, Joseph Pillitere, said that he was pleased with the opportunity to expose students to a different type of educational experience.
"While classroom lectures are part of their education, it's important to provide students with real-life, hands-on activities that take learning to the next level it's part of the JBC Experience," he said.
TitanX operates three plants, two in Sweden and one in Jamestown; and three research and development divisions at each of these locations. In addition, the company has recently expanded its production footprint in Brazil and China.
