What Our Clients Have to Say

The real power of MVT, in my opinion, is that you engage all of your workforce in generating ideas, designing the MVT, implementing the MVT, and actually retaining and sustaining the gains you generate.

International Paper, Andy Mouhot, Manager

Using [QualPro’s] MVT® Process, we have been able to continuously improve our processes and products, reduce costs, and steadily raise efficiency. Being efficient is really the key. In everything we do, we have to do it with as few people as possible and not waste anything. If we want to maintain a high standard of living in this country, we have to manufacture. We have to be more productive, we have to do it smarter, and to me the MVT® Process is the key part of doing that. . .I think that the MVT® Process, properly applied, is a competitive edge.

Lincoln Paper & Tissue, Keith Van Scotter, President/CEO

With QualPro, we have worked as partners and taken a lot of cost out of the system.
