“It has been my pleasure working with IMC on our Lean training. IMC has done exceptional work accommodating about 175 Lycoming Engines employees, cross payroll, from every job description, every corner of our facility, on all 3 of our shifts, to help each person understand how Lean can help them no matter their role. VERY nicely done.”

Gary Naculich, Senior Manager, Lycoming Engines

Over the course of the last several years, we have sent the majority of our management staff through lean manufacturing programs presented by IMC. As in organization that prides itself on continuous improvement, these workshops give our team the tools it needs to create long-term, increased success. It’s our hope, and plan to continue to educate all of our employees by these means.”

Seth Alberts, Vice President, Ralph S. Alberts Co., Inc.

“I can’t say enough positive things about The Learning Factory, and I am thankful for the connection that IMC so proactively made.
