About KM Shinn Consulting

What Would It Look Like to Truly Get the Results Your Company Needs?

And we aren’t just talking about your bottom line or your productivity.
Of course, that’s where we’ll focus to make sure your commitments and goals are achieved but you’ll also get something better when you work with us.
You see, we aren’t terribly fond of the word “consultant”. After our almost 30 years in manufacturing, we’re used to the so-called consultants who swoop in, make changes, give a lot of advice and leave a large invoice with very little in the amount of real change in their wake.
And to be really honest – we saw a better way.
KM Shinn Manufacturing Consulting

When you work with us, you’ll get more than well-meaning advice

You’ll get a partner to help you and your company through challenging times and transitions. You’ll get a coach that supports you when you need one and a detail-oriented, data-driven, proven executive partner on the plant floor.
You’ll get as much knowledge and follow up as we can give you. Because we’re lifelong learners. We have lived and learned through almost every business situation possible. We care deeply about not only getting you massive results (like the time we saved one of our companies $1.2 million annualized), but also making sure they are sustainable.
