David Meier learned the true essence of the Toyota Production System (Lean Manufacturing) during his 10 years as a Group Leader for Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Georgetown, Kentucky. David has been assisting companies with their improvement activities since 1992 when he first helped a small bird feeder manufacturer in Ohio to achieve great results. From those early efforts, David learned how to implement Lean Manufacturing using an activity-focused approach, designed to generate substantial results while training experts within the company.
In recent years David has worked with some of the largest companies in the world as well as with small privately owned companies. He has successfully applied the Lean principles in both high volume and custom work environments, and in both manufacturing and office work places. David has thousands of hours of training experience and works effectively with members of management as well as hourly employees.
