US: Oregon Nursery Lean Consortium invites new members to join

After a very successful year of improvements, The Oregon Nursery Lean Consortium is now open to new members. Greenhouse and nursery growers — and their suppliers — are invited to join the 2017 program year.



The consortium brings together improvement leaders from multiple companies to learn and apply Lean principles to their organizations. “It is very helpful to have trained individuals who are able to see the waste quickly and have bias for action to eliminate it,” said Andres Alamillo, Continuous Improvement Manager for Smith Gardens.

Five companies participate in the Oregon Nursery Lean Consortium today: Smith Gardens Aurora, Robinson Nursery, PRT Oregon, Woodburn Nursery & Azaleas, and JLPN Liners.

“I am continually impressed with the quality of people in this group and their ability to get results,” said Chris Robinson, Nursery Manager at Robinson Nursery. “Every time I do one of these events I think there is no possible way we’ll meet our goals – and sure enough, we exceed them.”
