“Lean has been supporting us in our journey to become a world-class manufacturing company, giving us the right tools to achieve our goals. Using the sharing from the Consortia members, we implemented Lean certification programs throughout the company. Through best practices tours, our people were able to see what others are doing and benchmark ourselves against other best-in-class companies. Our work with the consortia also helped drive our roadmap and book of standards – initial assessments gave us direction on priorities and set the stage for our success. Today, Väderstad Industries Inc. (VII) is a leading global provider of highly efficient machinery, developed to simplify the work and improve results for the farmer.”
