From the moment they arrived on site, the LMAC team built strong working relationships with our people. They have coached and guided us through the tools, techniques and behaviours that sit behind operating a world class production facility. Working with LMAC is proving to be a very exciting process that has pulled the management teams of our two processing plants together to support a more cohesive approach to business. It is also drawing all of our people out of their comfort zones to give them more confidence to challenge themselves and their processes. We are really starting to feel a tangible culture for Continuous Improvement developing and becoming embedded across our sites, driven by the challenging but collaborative approach of the LMAC team. This true engagement with our people is one of the key reasons that the real business gains are being released so quickly
