“Your company’s Kaizen Arms are second to none.  I originally found them when solving problems in a plant in West Carrollton, OH.  Since then I’ve been promoted to Corporate and one of the many things I work on is coming up Best Business Practices.  These components are one of those by far and we’re working on making them a BBP for current plants and all future plant launches. Again we love your products, they simply work and work well.  We look forward to doing A LOT more business with your company in the future.”
