RssContinuous Improvement Director

MICHAEL HELMSTETTER 311 Hempstead 326, Ozan, AR 71855 (870) 557-6642 Are you continually improving manufacturing and maintenance processes to take out cost, increase capacity, and meet demand for your products in the marketplace? I have done this in large industrial and consumer product production environments and can do the same for you as Director of Continuous Improvement. Working for major corporations like Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Hitachi, and Husqvarna, I led large teams and managed budgets to $35M, ensuring that production lines, equipment, and engineering were performing to standard. My skills include Lean Manufacturing, engineering management, and performance improvement. I started and closed facilities, balanced assembly lines, installed 5S, and drove cultural change needed to support these alterations. I also significantly reduced energy costs in plants. I have held the titles of Change Agent, Manager – Facilities/ Maintenance, and Manager – Facilities / Engineering. No matter where I am, I apply the tools I learned by attending Hitachi International Management School (Toyota) in Japan to make sustainable change to processes. Managing projects, I effectively lead teams, training them in Lean methods. I am a problem solver with the ability to identify and implement alternatives that save money. I have broad industry experience from rubber to metals to consumer products. I have a BS in Business Management from Alameda University and received a Certificate in Lean Methodologies from Hitachi International Management School. If you want to streamline operations, improve productivity and profitability, and control costs, please contact me. Sincerely, Michael Helmstetter
