We work with companies to improve your processes using continuous improvement efforts including lean manufacturing, Toyota Kata management and leadership approach, and quality improvement, from Six Sigma to ISO Quality Management.  Manufacturers with process improvement programs are able to reduce non value-added activities and costs, increase quality, and become more agile, competitive and more profitable.

FloridaMakes can work with your company to help foster improvements that can be implemented across all aspects and levels of your business.
