Coastal Pet Products - Alliance, OH

A family-owned manufacturer of leashes, collars, chew toys, and similar products, Coastal Pet recognized the need to improve employee engagement and culture to drive revenue. While working with MAGNET, the company was able to establish a process for continuous improvement, which ultimately led to new jobs, reduced turnover, major culture changes, and the reshoring of an entire product line.

“I would highly recommend MAGNET to companies looking to improve employee engagement and innovate products. The Kaizen process training was a huge success and allowed us to greatly improve productivity … MAGNET was able to come in, establish a Lean innovation process, and allow us to operate self-sustainably afterward. Working with them has been a positive experience.” – Steve Caruso (Director of Operations, Coastal Pet Products)
