Words of praise from of our satisfied clients.

  • We are very happy to have partnered with New England Lean Consulting. Their diverse background and expertise in Lean techniques enabled them to develop a customized training program for our team. They brought a fresh perspective that made it possible for them to connect with employees unlike other firms we’ve worked with. They engage with every employee and focus on working smarter to improve efficiency, while making work easier and more enjoyable. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them in the years to come!

    SVP Iwaki America
  • We’ve had the New England Lean consultants as our coaches for years, and really can’t say enough about the work they do. They’ve helped lead numerous changes within our organization, and with their leadership we’ve increased Sales & improved EBITDA while simultaneously reducing lead times and lowering costs. The best part? Our customers and our employees have never been happier. They’re more than just outside help, they’re part of our family.

    Larry Vincent
    President Parts Tool & Die
  • We hired New England Lean to assist us with our manufacturing operations to increase throughput and decrease costs, as we’re in a variety of very competitive markets. We decided to go with them because all of their people have real-world experience, and we couldn’t be happier. Not only are our costs down, but we actually increased output in one area by almost 3x! Their expertise and industry connections are worth their weight in gold!

    Chris Garvey
    General Manager
  • I wanted to offer my sincerest thanks and congratulations to you for helping us achieve both ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certification. For PMD this is an incredibly important achievement, and provides us with the foundation we need to continue to compete in our rapidly evolving industry.

    Chuck Lewin
    CEO Performance Motion Devices
  • New England Lean has improved our entire business from start to finish. From the way we process work to the floor to our Quality Control methods, they stripped out the parts that we didn’t need and improved the parts that we did. Thanks Paul!
