“We have a strong track record in innovation and development of new products and processes. We began a lean journey, using LBS as our lean partners. During this time we have realised extraordinary improvements throughout the organisation such as reduction of lead time from 27 days in 2010 to 3 days in 2016. We attribute a significant portion of this growth directly to our organisational transformation based on Lean principles. In recent times, with the help of LBSPartners. we have trained colleagues in Lean Business Programme, with further training ongoing. We have found LBSPartners to be extremely beneficial and would highly recommend both to any potential business.”
Eddie Wall, Operations Manager, Benning Ireland

“The tools and coaching we have received as part of the training and mentoring programme is working for our company to deliver significant results to the bottom line. There is a strong relationship between LBSPartners and Loughnane’s of Galway. The practical aspects and exercises from the training we received were very enjoyable and the trainer was excellent.”
Daire Loughnane, Managing Director, Loughnane’s of Galway 

In 2016, we partnered with LBSPartners to complete a Green Belt Training Program. They each selected a project, which had specific targets for delivering measurable improvements. The team attended training days and worked on their projects over a 3 to 4 month period. In addition to the financial savings that the projects delivered (which were sustainable and significantly greater than the training costs), the team themselves learned a lot about Lean thinking and how to recognise and tackle waste. The trainer and mentor were very enthusiastic and professional throughout and provided plenty of support for our team.”
Eamonn Redmond, Operations Manager, Lily O’Briens

Through the Management Works programme, we have been working alongside LBSPartners to achieve major changes and improvements throughout our business. The overall support from the programme has been vital in developing our internal capabilities and supporting a lean culture that has contributed to significant growth for our company.”
