The New England Lean Consortium will be holding its September Lean Leaders Meeting at THG, The Hope Group, in Northborough, MA on Tuesday, September 12th. Current members include companies from Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

THG Corporation is a privately-held company founded in 1933 by the Rhoten family of Massachusetts. The company experienced strong growth as it expanded into fluid power products in 1960 through its affiliation as an authorized distributor for Parker Hannifin. More recently, the company established itself as a source for motion and control system solutions, incorporating its core competencies in hydraulics, pneumatics, fluid connectors, automation, filtration, electrical & electronic control systems, sealing solutions, and compressed air packages. The company has grown over the years through strategic acquisitions and organic growth supporting OEM and MRO customer applications throughout New England and the world.

A Lean Consortium is a group of companies and organizations that get together to help each other on their Lean Continuous Improvement journey. Facilitated by a Lean CI professional and connected by a secure online resource and sharing portal, the Consortium brings together local companies and peers to share, learn and grow with each other on their Lean journey. Member Companies share Best Practices and Resources in order to bring their Continuous Improvement Program to the next level. You are invited to attend the September Lean Leaders Meeting.

Who Should Attend?

  • Those companies that have a Lean Program and would like to take their CI program to a new level.

  • Those companies that would like to benchmark with other companies in New England.

Meeting Content

A Lean Leaders Meeting is an opportunity to learn new approaches to improving a Continuous Improvement Program. Attendees at these meetings can always walk away with some new ideas or new tools that they can apply at their own place of work. The host company benefits from the Meeting through the Plus/Delta Feedback Session as many improving ideas are offered during the session. The main benefit of a Lean Consortium is the fresh pair of eyes that come to a member company, and see the obvious waste. Attendees ask the Why? questions. Why do you do that? Why do you do it that way?

The attendees at a Lean Leaders meeting are all Lean Practitioners, possessing great experience, expertise and skills in Lean. The attendees offers their suggestions for improvement based on what they see and what they hear. It is a great opportunity to have a team of leading Lean Practitioners tour your plant and provide positive, reinforcing feedback.

You are invited to come and experience the Synergistic Power of a New England Lean Consortium Lean Leaders Meeting.
