The Twin Cities Chapter of the Chemical Coaters Association is offering a one-day symposium exploring methods to sustain your Lean Manufacturing success.

This seminar is geared toward team leads, supervisors, and personnel who are involved in lean manufacturing.  It is designed to provide information that will improve your lean program. It is also a benefit to suppliers providing them with insight into issues commonly seen by their customers.

Lean for Custom Manufacturers

This “No Show” issue has, at times, been an issue and based on this situation the TC Chapter reserves the right to charge back anyone making a reservation and is then absent without calling in a cancellation  by Friday, February 21, 2020.
