"Nevada Industry Excellence is very well networked and has provided helpful assistance and information about Quality Systems over the years Custom Stamping has been in Carson City."

— Tom Rettura, Quality Assurance Manager, Custom Stamping

"Lean manufacturing is dramatically reducing the cycle time required to ship our products. The improved cycle times are directly linked to the top-notch customer service we are now able to provide, over 98 percent shipped on time."

— Gerald Jearman, Plant Manager Springs Window

"Nevada Industry Excellence is a tremendous resource — especially for small companies that cannot afford a large technical staff. They saved us a huge amount of money. MAP’s Lean Manufacturing training was a catalyst for us. After attending the training we decided to make a commitment to this. Through Nevada Industry Excellence’s Lean Manufacturing principles Polymer was able to reduce its buildings from five to two, floor space was cut by more than 50 percent and profits more than tripled."

— Paul Gossi, Plant Manager Polymer Engineering Corporation’s
