“One-On-One Operational Excellence” Approach Improves Your Bottom Line

Leawood, KS - LAKEHURST CONSULTING, LLC announced a new program that can change the trajectory of small to medium sized manufacturing companies throughout the mid-west. The “ONE-ON-ONE OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE” approach is for companies seeking to lean out their manufacturing operations by identifying inefficiencies and harnessing the brainpower of those closest to the work to improve throughput and reduce costs. “Once a team focuses in on the true problem, it is amazing how they come together to build sustainable solutions. This establishes the foundation for a culture of continuous improvement, where they begin to see those nagging operating issues as opportunities to grow and enhance their business from the manufacturing floor upward,” commented Dan Pinkham, Lakehurst Consulting, LLC Owner and Principal Consultant.

Dan Pinkham founded Lakehurst Consulting, LLC after thirty years as a continuous improvement and operations leader in the process industries such as chemical production, fiberglass manufacturing, and mining. The consultancy applies real-world lessons from those industries to deliver continuous improvement approaches in a way that can build on a manufacturer’s internal improvement capabilities and is scaled to meet each client’s individual needs. Lakehurst seeks to be an extension of the client’s staff, to augment continuous improvement skill sets and teach those skills to team members to execute on their own in the future.

“Lakehurst Consulting possesses that unique combination of technical and skills strengths in Operational Excellence including Lean, Six Sigma, and Health and Safety and outstanding leadership capabilities. They hold themselves to a high standard of responsibility and accountability. Great to work with and to have on any team!” said Jack Leunig, former Senior Operations Leader at such companies as Honeywell, General Electric, Johns Manville, and Compass Minerals.
