What do you do at South Dakota Manufacturing & Technology Solutions?

As a business advisor, my role is to help South Dakota manufacturers prosper and grow whether that's through completing business assessments, delivering trainings, or working directly with clients on projects. We can help companies get to where they want to be.

What do you love most about working here?

I love that my job is to help people. At MTS we get to focus on serving manufacturers in South Dakota.

What’s your favorite thing about the manufacturing industry?

It’s an industry full of problem solvers. Manufacturing is a complex industry with a lot of moving parts, and you need to be able to constantly adapt and improve to remain competitive.

How did you get connected to the industry?

I have been in manufacturing my entire career. I worked in production while attending college, and then graduated to become a Manufacturing Engineer, and eventually got into management. I have been fortunate to work in many different sectors within the manufacturing industry.

What’s your favorite tool/app to use at the moment? Why?

I have always been a big Excel fan. It’s something almost everyone has access to, and once you start diving in deep with VB programming, you can create some extremely useful tools for data management.

How would you describe MTS to others?

We are essentially a full-service manufacturing consulting agency. Whether it’s training your team on the basics of lean manufacturing or visiting your factory floor to examine how you can improve your operations, we are here to assist manufacturers. If we are not an expert in the subject matter you need, then we will connect you with someone who is. Ultimately, we are here to be a resource for our state's manufacturers.
