"We arm our people with a clear purpose and direction. If you provide them with systems, tools, training and techniques that they can apply to their daily activities to effectively take ownership of workplace and process improvements, and continuously improve the value of products and services that we delivery to our customers, then great things happen. That’s called Manufacturing!"
