Josh Reid | Plant Manager, Winegard Company

At Winegard Company, I've had the opportunity to work in a variety of different departments. As we grew over time, I really came to understand how complicated our business had become. I knew there had to be a simpler way to run things. That's when SCC's Center for Business became instrumental in our growth. I knew their instructors had lived in the real world and lived a manufacturing life.

We started with SCC's LEAN 101 program. We reduced our inventory by over half of what we had when we first opened our new facility. That was over half a million dollars in savings..

Through the knowledge I've gained from SCC, I've learned there's a better way. LEAN not only helps us  be more efficient but it enriches the lives of our employees so they enjoy of what they do at work.
