Our speaker will be Cary Robinson, Lean Solutions 2.0. Cary has significant experience with this manufacturing methodology and will be a great resource to those companies participating in this discussion.
NOTE: This event is open to top leaders in regional manufacturing facilities. This may include plant managers, CEOs, general managers, site leaders, etc. Some facilities choose to have their lead HR person or top Safety professional participate.
Manufacturers are defined as “establishments engaged in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products” with a market for these products outside of the Upstate region. These establishments are often described as plants, factories, or mills, and characteristically use power-driven machines and materials-handling equipment.
Based upon our experience with the Roundtable, the best potential members are those that are involved in the following in their own facilities:
- Implementing Lean Manufacturing Processes
- Implementing Quality/Six-Sigma Systems
- Promoting a Safety Culture
- Engaged in some form of Sustainability Initiatives
- Encouraging a Positive Employee Relations Environment
If you have any questions as to whether your firm qualifies to participate in the Roundtable, please call Hank Hyatt at (864) 239-3714.
Join peer manufacturing plant managers for networking, a hot lunch, timely information and great take-aways to improve your own operations.
