For the past four decades, we have partnered with global manufacturers

Productivity was the first organization to introduce the principles of the Toyota Production System (Lean Manufacturing) to US manufacturers in the early eighties.  During this time, we studied and worked alongside Dr. Shingo, the father of the SMED system, and Mr. Iwata and Mr. Nakao, both hand-picked by Taiichi Ohno to take the principles of the System into the Toyota supply chain.

The knowledge acquired by our consultants helped us to gain in-depth experience in the application of Lean techniques and the development of continuous improvement cultures, which has allowed us to support global corporations in all industrial sectors in their pursuit of Lean excellence..
