My past experience with other Lean consultants was they would come in, give some base information, point out all your failures, and then leave. I am very glad that you and OMEP do not operate in that manner. To have OMEP truly come alongside and partner with us, to get down in the trenches with us, has been both refreshing and rewarding. It has been hard work, but we can all see the progress that has been made since we began this journey together.

We were in business 32 years before we engaged with OMEP. We have learned more in the last three years than the last three decades. Business owners are confident by nature. It has been humbling to discover what we didn’t know. I’m here to tell you that no matter how good you think you are, you have lots of room to get better. OMEP has changed our world. In some areas of our warehouse we are processing orders 3 times faster than we were before our engagement. OMEP found a way to get us to forget our egos and find better, simple solutions.

I believe that OMEP's program is critical to the success of manufacturing in the State of Oregon. Domestic manufacturers provide living wage jobs and organizations such as OMEP are essential in keeping manufacturing alive and well in the United States”
