From Our Partners: Lean and Green Manufacturing
At the conclusion of the onsite projects attendees shared their thoughts.
“At first I doubted that someone who knew very little about our business could actually tell us how to do something better. I was wrong,” one business owner said.
“I was reminded to start using my brain again!” another said. “I have started to look at things in a new way.”
“Don’t be afraid to try this!” a group from central Texas said. “You will have no regrets.”
