But Don't Just Take Our Word

“CME is a true partner in our success. We’ve been a member of its Lean Consortia in the province for the past decade, and continue to actively take advantage of its other programs and services. It’s fair to say that we would not be where we are today without their support.”

Greg Archibald
Schulte Industries

Continuous improvement is no longer just an organizational philoshopy — it is an imperative for growth. To be competitive on the world stage, Saskatchewan manufacturers must accelerate improvements in productivity performance, while sustaining the impeccable quality that has become globally synonomous with the Saskatchewan brand.
