NCI In the News

NCI made local news this past month as we began demolition at the site of our new national headquarters in Sheffield Lake, OH. The two-plus acre campus will include a new two-story 12,000 sq. ft. building which will house our offices and training center. Plus, we will remodel an existing 6,000 sq. ft. building that will house an additional hands-on training facility. There were two articles featured in the “Press:”
