Cornwall Ontario – Manufacturers looking to improve their processes will have an opportunity to learn more about the Toyota Kata methodology at an intensive two-day work shop in Cornwall Ontario.

The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) is organizing the event which will be held October 16 and 17 at SigmaPoint Technologies.

SigmaPoint has been on a Lean Manufacturing Journey for seven years and was recently featured in a Province of Ontario publication on best practices in the manufacturing sector.  Attendees to the workshop will learn firsthand how SigmaPoint uses Kata methodologies to further develop their employees and drive continuous improvement.

“We look forward to welcoming our colleagues to Cornwall and demonstrating the success we have had at SigmaPoint,” said Dan Bergeron, SigmaPoint President.
