Why Choose EMS?

"EMS has been an excellent partner in our Lean Manufacturing Journey, providing both insight and support. Matching their approach to our goals, they have supported our Assessment, Training, and initial Lean Activities. EMS delivered a sustainable program, teaching our team the needed skills to make continuous improvement part of our culture. I highly recommend Darren Dolcemascolo and EMS Consulting Group." - Dave Mowry, CEO, Tornier, Inc.

"(EMS Consulting Group Sr. Partner) Darren Dolcemascolo did a great job helping us develop and execute a plan to integrate Lean Manufacturing / Operational Excellence into our culture. He worked extremely well with Gen-Probe team, training people from multiple sites around the globe in Lean Tools and Techniques, and was instrumental in ensuring that we had the skills to move forward on our own. I would highly recommend him to an organization who needs a Lean educator and coach.” - Jorgine Ellerbrock, Sr. Vice President, Operations, Hologic Gen-Probe Incorporated

"I’ve used EMS to implement Lean concepts at two different companies and they have always provided exceptional service. They supported my companies by conducting Lean evaluations, train-the-trainer, general employee training, implementation of 5s, and facilitating Kaizen events (both manufacturing and service). What makes them unique is that they are willing to tailor their Lean approach and material to any company or situation. It’s not your typical “canned-Lean presentation” and, unlike several Lean consultants, they do not pressure for additional work. EMS will only provide the services that you need to be successful. They have never disappointed to provide results." -
Kermit Stott, VP Operations, Noven Pharmaceuticals
