Podcast #178 – Drew Greenblatt, President of Marlin Steel Wire

MP3 File (run time 29:41)  |  Read a Transcript

greenblattJoining me for Podcast #178 is Drew Greenblatt, President and Owner of Marlin Steel Wire Products, a manufacturing company based in Baltimore. I was really impressed with Drew’s keynote talk at the recent AME Southwest Region conference here in San Antonio.  Drew’s company is successfully competing against cheap Chinese imports by using Lean and “theory of constraints” methods, being passionate about serving customer needs, and making a commitment to (and investment in) his employees.

Whether you’re a manufacturer who is considering “re-shoring” your production (or avoiding off-shoring) or if you’re an organization looking to success by partnering with all of your employees, I think you’ll find Drew inspiring.
