MassMEP Launches New Bilingual Training Program for Manufacturing Companies

  • On May 22, 2014

MassMEP, a leading resource for manufacturing companies in Massachusetts, today announced that Miguel Cuenca has joined the organization as a Bilingual LEAN Training Specialist. Mr. Cuenca comes to MassMEP from Cambridge Endoscopic Devices and Snap-on Tools, where he served as a Mechanical Designer. MassMEP is launching a new bilingual training program to communicate essential information in the native language of many employees in manufacturing and other industries.

“MassMEP addresses the unique competitive challenges for manufacturers as well as the nature of its workforce,” said Jack Healy, Director of Operations, MassMEP. “Because a large proportion of workers in the manufacturing industry have limited English proficiency, offering manufacturing companies bilingual LEAN training will enable those employees to experience increased productivity and collaboration in the workplace and will ultimately increase customer satisfaction and retention.”

Mr. Cuenca stated, “Bilingual training is imperative in today’s society. I am excited to be given the opportunity to be a part of MassMEP’s commitment to manufacturing in Massachusetts. As a Bilingual LEAN Trainer, I will focus on providing LEAN instruction to both English and non-English speaking employees to help them to achieve their objectives and to be adequately trained.”
