“Loewen has been a member of CME for many years. We have participated in many of CME’s Lean training programs over the years and have always been very happy with the services CME provides.
In 2020, Covid has forced everyone to do business differently. Once again, CME stepped up and developed training programs that we could participate in virtually. Having participated in CME Lean programs in the past and knowing they have first-class trainers, we were confident enough in their ability that we registered 23 of our plant and office leaders in the virtual Lean Yellowbelt program. We were not disappointed.
Over the years Loewen has been a firm believer in the value of applying Lean principles. In the last five years, we have improved our productivity by 31% through eliminating waste in our processes. This wasn’t through implementing large capital projects: this was everyone pulling together finding waste and removing it.”
– Todd Le Roy, VP of Manufacturing, Loewen Windows
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Lean Level 1 Yellowbelt Course. The instructor gave us great resources and tools that can be used in both our home and work environments. We all have “wastes” that we encounter daily and to be able to identify and eliminate them, even if they are small, can make a huge difference in the outcome. CME provided an excellent virtual learning experience as they adapted their course to meet our company’s needs. I am super excited to promote and use what I learnt to help our company pursue excellence.”
– Justina Unger, Invoicing Coordinator, Friesens Corporation
“Virtual training far exceeded my expectations. It was just as interactive as it would have been in person and it allowed some personal growth and development for myself as well as allowing me to learn new tools and be able to problem solve on the fly as we are learned this new method together.”
