As market demands become more competitive, workforce becomes harder to find, and raw materials become more expensive and often difficult to source, businesses must make product development and production cycles more efficient, eliminate waste, and reduce losses — all while improving quality and cutting costs, sometimes drastically.
Continuous Improvement can be the solution to many of your costly and painful problems.
Kansas Manufacturing Solutions has created a series of trainings, webinars, and resources to assist you with your Continuous Improvement journey. Check out our LEAN to Improve Series!

KMS is looking to expand our Alliance Partner delivery team.
Alliance Partners deliver high-quality, market-driven, cost-effective services to Kansas manufacturing customers. There are solutions that KMS cannot provide using internal resources. We contract with Alliance Partners to fill those gaps where manufacturers have needs.
KMS assumes the responsibility of vetting the Alliance Partner, training about the KMS way, and ensures the Alliance Partner has the tools to support the needs of Kansas manufacturers. Through our onboarding processes, we take the burden of searching for a resource, vetting a resource, and managing the resource and any associated projects, off the shoulders of the manufacturers.
