Gordon’s Window Décor – Making Their Future Bright By Embracing 5s As Standard Work
VMEC is a Vermont resource and trusted advisor to enterprises of all sizes. Since 1995, the VMEC Team has brought world-class expertise through consulting, coaching, hands-on implementation support, and training and education for leaders and workers.
“Gordon’s Window Décor – Making Their Future Bright By Embracing 5s As Standard Work.

It was rounded out with four half days of coaching and assistance in actual shop floor implementation.”
