TBM has a strong partnership with this family-owned manufacturer of high-performance coated fabrics. Starting in 2006, the initial kaizen events at Seaman Corporation focused on operational speed and agility while improving the cost of quality, increasing equipment uptime and reducing setup times. Subsequent projects focused on ERP implementation, inventory reduction, production line redesign, training and certification for continuous improvement resources, and more.

In this short video, Richard Seaman, Chairman of Seaman Corporation, said that they wanted a carefully select and invest in a longterm partner to implement their LeanSigma journey.  Retired CEO and President, John Crum, says that they wanted someone to provide outside thinking and to challenge them to "think big".  Commentary by Jonathan Wheatley, TBM Client Manager, sheds light on why this partnership has been successful.
