Due to negative customer feedback, inconsistent cost of quality and unsuccessful internal training initiatives it became obvious that we needed outside support. We enlisted Trevor Blondeel and Operations Kickstart for his executive coaching and training expertise. We aimed to improve many facets through this initiative, but the most important objective was to grow our people. Our production staff is our most valuable asset, if they are not provided with the tools and knowledge required to perform their jobs properly and efficiently then our business will fail! Using small focus groups Trevor engages the entire team, leading them through process and system improvements; empowering them at all levels and facilitating line improvements, communicating from the top down.

Trevor not only provides the training and coaching necessary to improve our systems (Get Quality Right the First Time, 5S, Lean, etc.) but more importantly he provides a foundation on which Lanex can develop into a world class manufacturing facility.
