LeanCor Announcement

LeanSupply Chain, Cost Savings Subjects of New Course at Laurier Executive Development Centre
Waterloo, ON – August 15, 2011 – Third Party Logistics Provider (3PL) LeanCor and the Laurier Executive Development Centre (LEDC) have partnered to offer a three-day certificate course November 7-9 that teaches how to apply lean principles to the supply chain.
The supply chain is often plagued with waste. This course will help supply chain professionals reduce logistics costs and lead times, as well as drive customer satisfaction, process improvement, and profitability.

Upon completion of the course, students will walk away with the tools necessary to implement the lean supply chain.  They will implement significant Return on Investment (ROI) projects, demonstrate significant service level improvements to customers, and possess a sustainable communication environment for improving everyday customer interaction. Students will also receive a LEDC certificate recognizing advanced knowledge in lean supply chain application.
“The Laurier Executive Development Centre (LEDC) chose to partner with LeanCor to offer this seminar because LeanCor impressed LEDC with its subject-matter expertise and approach to helping others benefit from that knowledge, said Richard Cantin, Executive Director of the LEDC. “The intent of this seminar is to help individuals and companies improve and be more competitive, aligning well with the mandate of the LEDC.” For more information, please contact: Adri Spyker at 519-594-0042,
