MRC leads tour of Toyota plant to see lean culture in action
A group of 28 manufacturing leaders from Lehigh Valley, led by the Manufacturers Resource Center (MRC) in Allentown, recently visited the Toyota manufacturing plant in Louisville, Kentucky, for a three-day learning experience focused on lean culture. Guided by Mike Hoseus, co-author of “Toyota Culture: The Heart and Soul of the Toyota Way,” the trip introduced local manufacturers to the origins and practical implementation of lean culture in their operations.
The visit allowed manufacturers to hear about Toyota’s successes and challenges and ask questions. This experience emphasized the importance of aligning systems with desired behaviors and cultures for employee development.

MRC offers various courses and training opportunities to help organizations put these principles into practice, including factory simulators and Master Lean Certification programs.
