Drew Flora

“I am typically skeptical about the value of consultants.  It seems to me that many have a solution they try to sell without spending the effort to learn the problem.  But, I was very impressed by how quickly and efficiently our Manufacturing Growth Specialist learned our business, our organization, and how we operate.  She identified the problems then developed and executed a plan to transition our quality system to ISO 9001:2015 in less than 6 months. She adroitly broke down barriers, reconciled numerous differences in opinion, and developed simple solutions for issues that had us stumped, while gaining the respect of everyone she worked with. Congratulations on a great job of simplifying our Quality System and getting us registered to ISO 9001:2015 without any non-conformances during our registration audit.”
“FASTLANE helped us vet the various local manufacturing suppliers to develop our supply chain for the bicycle saddle assembly.”
