Sustainable Manufacturing Consulting

Sometimes the best way to learn is by doing. That’s one reason why we call our team “practitioners” instead of consultants. Our practitioners will help your employees experience the action first hand as they work alongside them – on the manufacturing floor or in the C-suite. At Performance Solutions by Milliken, we start working on site from day one, capturing your current state, then creating a master plan with your leadership to see what implementing a performance system will look like.
