Improvement Training to Local Companies
Daniel Berman, Safety Director and Compliance Officer at Veneer Tech, recently completed his Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training through Carteret Community College’s Customized Training Program. Berman completed his training online and at no cost to him or his employer. Since completing his training, 11 additional Veneer Tech employees have completed process improvement training.
Veneer Tech worked with Carteret Community College’s Customized Training Program to offer the Lean Six Sigma and Fundamentals of Problem Solving programs to their employees. Veneer Tech is one of the largest face veneer plants in North America. The company was established in 1993 and is located in Newport, NC and has sister companies in the Moehring Group around the world. The company specializes in natural face veneer, sheet veneers of every description, reconstituted veneer, edge banding (melamine and natural wood), exotic hardwood lumber and other specialty wood products.
“Lean Six Sigma Training takes the combined approach of eliminating waste and reducing defects. At Veneer Tech, this is something we look for opportunities to do every day,” said Berman. “As the Safety Director, this training gives me the knowledge to understand the changes and improvements that we are looking to make in our production processes and ensure that any changes that are made are done so with our top priority in mind, the Safety of our Employees.”
