ROCKWELL COLLINS: WE THANK YOU
We would like to extend a special thank you to Rockwell Collins. Without their help and initiative in assisting us to get started with the Lean program, none of this would have been possible. Their knowledge has been essential in our expansion of Lean processes, and we cannot thank them enough.
