“The work you have done for our company has made a huge difference to the site’s variance this year. All factories had another month of favorable M & I spending again…and there is no getting around the fact that the M & I improvement initiative has resulted in some significant dollar savings. Even the summer shutdown, which normally blows our budget out of the water, appears to be totally under control and not too far out of line with normal months.”
Vice President of Manufacturing, Large Pharmaceutical Company


“Belimo has utilized the consulting services of Daniel Penn over the past three years. They have worked with us on multiple Lean Kaizen events and Six Sigma Green Belt certifications resulting in productivity improvements of 15%-20% with little to no capital investment. The individuals leading these events were very knowledgeable, engaging and accommodating. I look forward to continuing our relationship with Daniel Penn.”
John Forlenzo, VP of Logistics/Customization, Belimo USA


“Since holding the Kaizen event with Daniel Penn Associates, our business is seeing immediate results. We have reduced our backlog to manageable levels and have improved flow through the cell. The manpower cost to repair units has decreased. Quality of work is up and proven by a firstpass yield at testing. This event has supported our strong position of competitiveness and is helping us keep this work in Connecticut.”
Kathy Daudish, VP of Engineering and Operations, EeMax, a division of Rheem Manufacturing


“We completed a Lean Audit and Kaizen project with Daniel Penn associates in August of 2020. We had good communication with our facilitator Kate McGovern. Ms. McGovern made sure we understood our schedule, was flexible with dates and helped us complete the task in a remote environment. We found the course work to be well thought out and the examples to pertained to our work environment. We utilized several types of charts to get a better understanding of how our processes affect not only our daily work but also our customers. We were able to complete a Kaizen that will lead to valuable time savings for both our staff and our customers. We would recommend Lean training and a Kaizen event for others looking to review their processes.”
Gail Thomas, Deputy Division Director, Division of Medical Services, Department of Social Services

President, Utility Company


“When we were told our processor was converting to a new platform and all our systems would be changing within nine months, I knew we needed help in the Deposit Operations and Electronic Services area. We had relatively new supervisors, processing errors, and were not meeting deadlines. We needed help to increase the supervisors’ capabilities, streamline the workflow and determine present and future staffing levels. I immediately called Tony Rodriguez. Several years ago, Daniel Penn Associates came in and worked very closely with the staff. As a result, productivity and effectiveness were improved; backlog was decreased; problem resolution was improved; tools were developed to determine staffing needs; and, managerial capabilities were improved. We can see a constant increase in the confidence level of the output from the operations area.”
Senior Vice President, Major Regional Bank


“We contracted Daniel Penn Associates to review and recommend process improvements to our Underground Damage Prevention program. DPA’s associates worked as a team with our employees, providing expertise in the areas of process mapping and problem identification techniques. As a result, we were able to identify significant progress in the area of damage prevention as well as additional opportunities for improvement. This was our third opportunity to work with Daniel Penn Associates. We value the services they provide and would recommend them to others.”
Vice President Operations, Power Delivery, National Electric Utility, and Natural Gas Distributor
