Continuous Improvement Executive Joins Sanderson MacLeod To Accelerate ‘Factory of the Future’ Mission
Monique Dumais, BSE, MBA, LSSBB, and Continuous Improvement Expert Selected to Drive Future Initiatives for the Twisted Wire Brush Leader
Industry veteran, engineer, and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Monique Dumais has joined the executive team of Sanderson MacLeod. The Palmer, Massachusetts based twisted-wire brush manufacturer recently announced that among many other responsibilities, Dumais will be assisting the growing company in their pursuit of becoming a “Factory of the Future.”
“We are a durable goods manufacturer in a very competitive industry.” said Mark N. Borsari, Sanderson MacLeod’s CEO. “Our only viable strategy is to creatively produce quality products in a way that is faster and more efficient than ever before.” Mr. Borsari continued by citing, “While we do this, we are giving our employees better ways to add value that is worthy of more competitive compensation.” According to Mr. Borsari, integrating the new position has been carefully planned for more than two years.
Dumais brings extensive experience in enterprise-wide LEAN and Continuous Improvements initiatives with Fortune 500 companies such as Pratt & Whitney, Pepperidge Farm, and Callaway Golf. She also holds degrees from Western New England University, Wentworth University, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
According to Ms. Dumais, working with the Sanderson MacLeod team felt more like a calling than a business decision.
“I’ve been following the company’s progression and growth for several years, actually.” she said recently. “Now, I’m eager to join them in their journey and add some more perspectives which I feel can help reach the next level.”
Ms. Dumais’ addition highlights Sanderson’s commitment to assembling a team that operates with efficiency, smoothness, and intensity. Her added talent will help to facilitate new techniques that will guide continuous improvement efforts and operational excellence.
