Last week, HE&M Saw was pleased to host the quarterly meeting of The Manufacturing Workforce Committee of the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance (OMA).
The Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance works with companies to create wealth and grow the state’s economy. The alliance offers technical assistance and business advice; helping companies become more innovative and successful. Through their statewide network of manufacturing extension agents and applications engineers, services focus on improving the bottom line through efficiency concepts like Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma. They also work to grow the entire business through new product development, service improvements, and expanding markets.
This committee—led by Sharon Harrison, Director of Workforce Development and Community Partnerships—is comprised of c-level executives from large and small manufacturers across the state. They endeavor to develop a state-wide framework for identifying and driving initiatives for manufacturer’s workforce challenges in the state of Oklahoma.
After the meetings concluded, HE&M Saw V.P. of Manufacturing, Mike Glover and Chief Engineer, Maxwell Harris led attendees on a tour of both the HE&M Saw manufacturing and assembly facilities.
