Have you ever had that feeling that as much as you know about your operations, there are hidden risks that could ruin your day? With that in mind, we hired Summit Safety & Efficiency Solutions to dig into those areas of potential risk in the Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) areas of our operations. Their team brought great knowledge and years of expertise to expose and correct areas of risk to OSHA, Suffolk DEP fines, deficiencies on Sustainability audits from our customers, workers comp insurance increases and, most importantly, risk of injury to our team members. I highly recommend that you engage Summit to see where your risks are and get their assistance to provide the safest, most environmentally friendly operation you can.
We had a sense that the process we were using to print and quality check labels used in clinical trials was taking much longer than it should. So, we engaged Summit to work with us to find ways to cut our process time. Using a lean manufacturing training & consulting engagement at Citation Clinical Labeling Systems, Summit helped us and now we have a system we believe can help us cut our times up to 47%!
Recently Ron had occasion to work with one of my clients who realized her process. From sale to the delivery of the product, took far too long and too many steps. The Company completely streamlined and documented all within the specific, detailed procedures her company must maintain. Cost and time savings resulted.
Using funding from the Federal TAAC grant program, Summit assisted us in gaining ISO and then AS9100 certification. In the year that we achieved AS9100, we saw a 30% growth in revenues from being able to sell in to the Aerospace market!
Ron’s company, Summit Business Solutions, worked hard with my team to get a vibrant safety system in place here at Natech. In addition to the peace of mind that goes with a best in class safety system, we were able to leverage the work to obtain very competitive worker’s compensation rates. We’re considering operations help in other area’s from Ron’s team as a result.
Summit has provided excellent training services and helped us to acquire state training credits.
Faced with limited staffing and expertise in the Environmental, Health & Safety area. We hired Summit’s Certified Safety Professional (CSP) to provide expert services to help us gain new business, keep workers comp costs low, avoid fines & penalties, clean up after Hurricane Sandy and provide a safe working environment for our employees. They have worked with us on a monthly basis providing much needed expertise at a fraction of what it would cost to hire a full time CSP.
Ron has provided LEAN manufacturing consulting services for our precast concrete manufacturing facility. He has helped us with value stream mapping, mistake proofing, process development. Ron has given classes to our employees and is able to work alongside of them to iron out production problems. I highly recommend Ron for his Lean Manufacturing expertise.
By training our team on lean manufacturing, inventory management, and supply chain management; providing systems, process, organizational development, and leadership training, Ron was able to transform our business, cutting delivery times in half, dramatically reducing errors and positively impacted our bottom line. Ron was also instrumental in helping us capture tens of thousands of dollars in State training grants and a large cash infusion via the New York State R&D tax credit. I must admit I was skeptical at first but, you quickly changed my mind after we starting working with you. The benefits could be seen immediately
It has been a pleasure working with Ron and Dave.
It gave us a great focus and engagement amongst the employees in the company during your Lean Manufacturing training engagement, helping us to reduce waste, implement improved quality control procedures and streamline our operations. This will help us to continue to reduce our cost of operations, improve our competitive position and enhance the service we provide to our customers.
Wenner Bread leverages lean training to reduce scrap, improve profitability!
I was excited about the lean training from the beginning because I believed this will give us more tools that we can use in the management of both facilities in regards to cost reduction, organization and procedure. It was great to see everyone become engaged as we went thru each training.
I see our management team taking ownership of these techniques starting with the projects we all completed and I look forward to working with them moving forward to continue this approach to improve our daily operations of the bakery. I hope to continue to work with you and Frank to further assist us in any way necessary to ensure a proper approach to areas we wish to apply lean techniques
