On October 13, 2010, OSM majors are invited to take a plant tour of the Lincoln Electric Company's logistics center in Euclid, Ohio.
The tour will be preceded by a light meal and comments by Wael Dardir (CPIM) regarding the impact of Six Sigma on their distribution activities. If you are unfamiliar with Lincoln Electric, here is a brief look at the company's scope of operations:
"Lincoln was founded in 1895 and today is the world leader in the design, development and manufacture of arc welding products, robotic welding systems, plasma and oxyfuel cutting equipment.
Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Lincoln has 39 manufacturing locations, including operations and joint ventures in 19 countries and a worldwide network of distributors and sales offices covering more than 160 countries. Lincoln has a global work force of more than 9,000."
If you have any questions, please contact the OSM Department.
