General Manufacturing

We believe we are unrivalled in our knowledge, experience and capability of effectively applying operations excellence principles across a diversity of market sectors and locations.

Within our heritage we were trail blazers for continuous improvement training and lean consultancy across many sectors not least General Manufacturing. Whilst Directors of Forward Vision (see our evolution) our founder and our key people were pivotal in leading the development of engagements across a number of blue-chip General Manufacturing companies and in the case of PC Hendersons the quality of the training engagement was recognised through the winning of a National Training Award. Success in this sector has continued for Deerness Consulting with a number of high profile projects and engagements being completed with progressive organisations.
