Success Stories

Smooth Operations at Top Quality Industrial finishers

Accredited by the National Institute for Standards and Technology, the non-profit organization’s mission is to substantially improve the quality, productivity and profitability of Delaware manufacturers by identifying, transferring and implementing best practices.


DNREC Goes Lean

“Now, instead of a one-size-fits-all form, the application consists of a series of building blocks that applicants can put together like a set of Legos. Operators of dry cleaning plants and auto body shops no longer have to wade through complex forms that chemical manufacturers must complete.”
— Amy Mann, DNREC Engineer


Training Helps Atlantis Earn Certification Essential to Growth

“I’d rather see more money spent on the front end and have production go smoothly without any defective parts. Training from DEMEP helped improve our efficiency and improve our quality. We’ve shipped more than 3.5 million parts to Nissan since September 2006, and we’ve had no rejects.”
— Ken Orr, Atlantis president
