Exceeda was a great partner in our Lean Transformation. The pace that was set was comfortable but at the same time challenged our employees. The team at Exceeda was outstanding. The results have been felt throughout our company but more importantly our customers. The focus on process stability and continuous improvement drove significant change in our on time delivery, quality, and cost. The excitement and engagement of the associates on the shop floor is contagious and will ensure that our improvements will be sustained.
–John Kay, Executive Vice-President, HVHC
