We were struggling in an industry affect by foreign competition; we need to increase our sales and reduce our operating costs. The SWTAAC helped us increase our sales through development of a new web site and achieving ISO certification. It helped us improve operating costs through the deployment of lean manufacturing concepts and development of better IT systems to track and analyze our results.
When several of our long time, domestic distributors were recruited to sell low cost laser engraving systems produced in Taiwan, the SWTAAC helped us develop a plan and acquire a matching grant to respond. The plan and grant helped us improve our marketing efforts and operating efficiencies, and we were able to move from sales declines to sales increases and profitability. I don’t know if we would be in business today if it were not for their efforts.
