Members of staff at an engine manufacturer in the US have been given training in Six Sigma methods in a bid to improve productivity and efficiency at the site.
Employees at Briggs & Stratton's plant in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, are closing in on the key milestone of 70 million engines being finished at the location.
Mark Melloy, plant manager for Briggs & Stratton, stated 200 members of staff at the plant have been given Six Sigma training to improve efficiency at the factory.
"We are a determined group and proud of the fact that Briggs & Stratton is making engines here in Missouri - and more importantly in the US," he said.
Mr Melloy added the team at the firm is "actively engaged" in making the site more efficient.
Earlier this month, chief financial officer at Dr Reddy's Umang Vohra revealed the pharmaceutical firm is set to bring in Six Sigma specialists in a bid to become more productive.
