Tobyhanna Army Depot Tour – Summary

What a great morning at Shingo Prize winning Tobyhanna Army Depot.  Our hosts, led by Director of Productivity Improvement and Innovation, Brad Jones, enthusiastically responded to our questions and did a tremendous job explaining process and improvements throughout our tour.

It was easy for us to see why Tobyhanna has won several Shingo Prizes.  We were also struck by the kindness and respect to everyone exhibited during our tour.  BRAVO Tobyhanna team!

    Sounds like it was a great opportunity see and learn!

    I wonder if Tobyhanna benchmarks with Letterkenny (another great network visit from last year)?

    Hi Dave….sorry you could not make it, you missed a really good day. Yes, they spoke of benchmarking with Letterkenny.
