Since 1992, Granite Bay has been helping 24/7 manufacturing plants compete globally by engaging people at all levels to apply proven strategies that advance Productivity, Quality, Delivery and Morale.

Don Penkala has worked with managers and their associates world-wide to help revitalize operations and improve productivity and profitability by streamlining flow, improving reliability and gaining employee participation.

We've helped cut manufacturing costs, increase utilization and output, reduce quality defects, improve safety performance and contract customer lead times - all while partnering with associates and improving job satisfaction and morale.

These are some of the characteristics that describe our approach:

RESULTS-ORIENTED: Our focus is helping you to achieve measurable results. Granite Bay believes in the power of mobilizing the entire plant around common objectives and adopting those Best Practices that will deliver substantial improvements in performance.

COST-EFFECTIVE: Building world-class shift operations should not require exhorbitant consulting fees. Our clients have reported that they are pleased with the value they receive for their consulting and training dollar.

EXPERIENCED: Granite Bay has helped numerous clients world-wide across a wide variety of industries to cut costs, streamline operations, improve on-time delivery and advance morale. And we continue to learn more with each new assignment.

COMMITTED: Granite Bay is highly committed to keeping manufacturing competitive in the United States. And we firmly believe that implementing the right improvement strategies with the commitment of the work force is the best way to achieve it. We work hands-on with managers, supervisors and associates to ensure that your operation is more competitive, more effective and a better place to work than before.
