"Working with the IMC and engaging in Lean training has helped us to thrive in a time when the economy has wavered."
— Gary Naculich, Manager, Transitions to Production, Lycoming Engines
“This project has really taken the whole idea of adding a retail store to our manufacturing business and launched it in such a fast and efficient manner. IMC has been there right alongside us, supporting us, the whole time. We have seen what were once just hopes and plans come to fruition. What the store is today, has already far exceeded my expectations and revenue has dramatically increased, not only in our retail store, but in the manufacturing business as well. I am so excited for what has been started here and my hopes for the future are that this business continues to grow in such a way that there will be a need for continued job creation for well-equipped young people in this area.”
— Chet James, Owner/President, G&M Bandsaw
