What our clients say
SUPPLY Lincolnshire, particularly the Lean Awareness training we received, has been very beneficial. New for some members of staff and a refresher for others, the information provided has helped us break down some of the internal barriers within the company and encouraged more widespread participation in improvement projects – including building a stronger network of local customers and suppliers. One of the best things that we found out about the programme was that all the support provided is bespoke, meaning each piece of guidance is tailored to meet individual companies’ needs.
Managing Director of Linwave Technology
Our consultant was very experienced with expert supply chain knowledge, including technical know-how and a vast portfolio of business contacts. Not only did SUPPLY Lincolnshire provide us with invaluable knowledge and contacts, but it has also helped bring our R&D process to 50% completion and we plan on bringing our product to market sometime during mid-2015, months ahead of our projected launch date.
