Firstly, allow me to introduce myself.

We are Lean Manufacturing Consultants and Lean Six Sigma training and accreditation providers.

Based in North Wales, although often we are at client sites across the UK.

My primary objective, is to help my clients prosper.

Unlike some Lean Manufacturing Consultants websites that appear faceless and impersonal, I believe communication is one of the most important aspects of Lean or CI (Continuous Improvement).

It is also one of the key components in business (Or any other) relationships.

That's why my personal mobile number is here:

07843 577771

Please feel free to call me to discuss your requirements, or just to bounce some ideas off me.

BeyondLean Ltd. are Business Improvement Specialists and Lean Six Sigma Training Providers, utilising a range of improvement tools to get results.

These are primarily Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma tools, though not restricted to these alone.

We also operate as part of a larger network as Associate Consultants, which gives us access to larger Consultancy companies and their specific expertise in certain sectors. These include:

- Financial services

- Healthcare

- Automotive


- Public Sector

- Aerospace

- Nuclear Power

- Oil & Gas

- Utilities

Here are some of the recent results that we have realised:
