Client CEO

We needed best practices disseminated quickly and effectively across our network, so we could be much more responsive to our customers’ needs.

Chief Executive

What is even more valuable is that we see this effort as something beyond a one-time infusion of new ideas and practices. Everywhere in our production and distribution plants, in each of the task forces and subgroups, planning is underway to move beyond completion to ensure the sustainability of all we’ve done so far.

Production Manager

This project has left behind empowered employees at all levels of the business. The success we have achieved has become addictive to many and will keep driving us towards the culture of continuous improvement.

Plant Manager

Just a short note with a big thanks for what you and your team helped us achieve this year... Proudfoot and our plants built a great relationship right from the start. Your team was outstanding.
