My Peer Group is short money; a good investment for short and long term results.
My group affords me an important monthly opportunity to learn from my manufacturing peers’ experience in their respective businesses. With our group I get a chance to both share my solutions and hear from colleagues on their solutions. I can bring both small and outsized challenges to the group for their insights and feedback. Getting candid feedback from a group of smart manufacturing professionals is invaluable.”

I’ve been working with my Manufacturing Peer Group for just a little over a year now and I can strongly attest to the benefits of the program.
Each month I get the opportunity to meet and work with my peers (all Manufacturers) on issues ranging from Lean best practices to “how can we grow our business”. The discussions are fast paced and real and they’re based on shared real life experiences and knowledge from people who live and work in a manufacturing environment. The beauty of the program is that I get to learn and share with people who I admire and trust and whose primary objective is to make each member company better.”

I have had many usable, practical takeaways from my Peer to Peer Group.
- Our group discussions helped me to develop and implement a sales and marketing plan.
- The team helped me see the light in terms of bringing focus to our strategy and segmentation regarding exploiting our IP.
- The teams input assisted me in evaluating new technologies. In fact, one of the team members is my first customer for one of those technologies.”

The investment I make in my Peer to Peer Group has paid dividends both personally and professionally.
My peers help me to look at my business as a whole. It is a place you can gather information and bounce ideas off a great group of seasoned business leaders. I gain valuable input form my peers, learn about what had worked for them and more importantly what mistakes to avoid. ”

It’s nice to know that I’m not alone in the challenges that I face.
My Peer to Peer Group affords me an important monthly opportunity to learn from my manufacturing peers. While no two manufacturing companies are exactly alike, we share many of the same challenges.”
Pat Hayden, Co-Owner
It’s nice to know that you aren’t the only one dealing with the challenges of running a business.
My Peer to Peer Mfg. group is a diverse group of manufacturing companies that each have their own challenges. The discussions amongst the group are always enlightening, informational and above all valuable. The advice that we give each other on a variety of topics helps everyone as we may have different types of manufacturing businesses, but face the same challenges on a varying degree. The group has developed a shared interest to help each other in an open and honest environment that we are comfortable speaking in and know that our conversations will remain confidential.”
