Event Details

Manufacturers of all sizes and sectors have embraced principles of Lean Management to improve processes and enhance culture development.  This month, we are pleased to learn from one company’s journey when it comes to moving forward in a continuous improvement initiative of this nature! 

The Factors Group of Nutritional Companies Inc. is a leading manufacturer of nutritional supplements and other health-building products.  In true peer networking format, we will have a chance to gain insight on the inroads they have made.  We’ll learn what is working and what perhaps is challenging, the tools that are best suited in their success so far, and what it takes to sustain the momentum!
