Technique and David Dodd Present LEAN at GraphExpo
Press release from the issuing company
(October 15, 2008) As 2008 draws to a close, printing company managers are facing a daunting array of challenges. Inflation-adjusted printing sales are continuing to decline. Materials costs and other operating expenses are growing, and selling prices remain under strong downward pressure. In this tough competitive environment, printing companies must be productive simply to survive, and they must be highly productive in order to prosper.
Faced with the ever-increasing need to improve productivity, companies in a wide range of industries have embraced lean manufacturing. Recent research indicates that 59 percent of all North American companies and nearly 70 percent of manufacturing companies are using LEAN to improve business performance.
At 2pm each day of Graph Expo, you'll have a unique opportunity to learn how LEAN can improve your company. G. David Dodd will be in the Technique booth to explain what LEAN is, how it works, and how you can use LEAN to drive improved productivity and higher profits.
Join us at Booth 5251 at 2pm each day to learn how LEAN can help your company survive and prosper in these difficult times.
"We're delighted to be collaborating on this event with David, who is one of the most experienced LEAN advocates in our industry. David's knowledge coupled with Technique MIS is a powerful combination that can enable and accelerate a LEAN implementation" states Mark Anderson, Chief Operating Officer, Technique Inc.
