NWIRC initiated the Lean Together™ working group for operational excellence last January for manufacturing companies in Erie and Crawford County. The group included participants from SEPCO, Channellock, McInnes Rolled Rings, Machining Concepts, American Turned Products, Industrial Sales & Manufacturing, Acutec Precision Aerospace, Modern Industries, and Rehrig Pacific. A graduation was held in December which featured special guest, author and researcher, Mike Rother. During the graduation, each company presented one success story of a 2 Second Lean improvement. Congratulations to this group for continuing their journey in
2 Second Lean. The Lean Together working group from Mercer County will graduate in March.
