Recent Projects

Maine MEP works with local businesses every day, providing real world expertise and assistance. Here is a sample of some recent projects we have worked on right here in Aroostook County.

Acme Monaco
MEP assisted this manufacturer by facilitating a Posting Area Kaizen Event focusing on workplace organizing, layout and labeling materials in the area to reduce batch sizes by 50% and increase productivity by 20%.  The Kaizen Event in the Maintenance Dept focused on over-all cleanliness and organization, thus reducing non-value added search time by 30%, reducing walking distance by 40%, and increasing overall production by 10%.

Katahdin Forest Products
Katahdin Forest Products hired Maine MEP to perform a strategic business and technology assessment of its company. This in-depth business and technology assessment determined that Katahdin held a strong competitive technology advantage capable of manufacturing its high quality homes in a way that dramatically shortens the time from order to ownership thus reducing overall acquisition costs. Dealers experience shorter sales cycles, quicker commissions on closed deals and reduced risk of failed projects.

MEP offers various time-proven workshops that provide a company to become more competitive within a global market while opening up valuable production capacity, allowing greater product diversity.
