"Before working with OTI, we were attempting to implement Lean on our own. After roughly a year, we really did not have anything to show for our efforts, as we really did not have a good understanding of what it took to get our Lean initiative started. OTI has given us the tools and training how to see and eliminate waste. Their staff is very hands-on and truly takes ownership of the projects they are involved in. It is great to work with such a wonderful group of people."
