TMC LEAN/Six Sigma Training Session: "A Deep Dive Into the Causes of Waste Within Fleet Maintenance"
"At TMC there’s a network of professionals who aren’t afraid to have the difficult conversations. They typically reach conclusions by leveraging the experience we have across multiple fronts. The open dialogue yields solutions across the board including positive results in safety and profitability."
Phil DeSouza, VP of Maintenance & Security, Bennett Motor Express
“The TMC meeting experience was a game changer. I was like ‘wow, this is amazing!’ I’ve heard people complain that there’s no place to get training and education, and now I tell them that there is huge amounts of information through TMC. You have the power to go into the study groups and change the fleet operations. I won’t miss another opportunity.”
Steven Weiser, CSAM, ComEd, Sr. Government Equipment Compliance Specialist, Fleet Services
“At TMC, I learned a lot about HVAC standards, tire inflation systems, and different approaches that fleets take to maintain their battery systems. Fleets openly discussed their maintenance issues. There are so many exciting and new things out there that most people outside the industry don’t know about. It seems we are all in the same situation throughout the maintenance field.”
Fred Trammel, Shop Manager, Transport America, Inc. (TMC’s 2015 Maintenance Supervisor Awardee)
