KNOXVILLE – WACKER is pleased to announce that Aisha Sheikh, Technical Manager, has completed the requirements to be awarded a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt.

At WACKER, continuous improvement and performance excellence aren’t just corporate buzzwords. They are essential to the organization and part of the company culture. Investing in our team members to increase their continuous improvement capabilities improves safety, productivity, quality, cost, reliability, and customer experience.

Wacker’s North-Central America Productivity Manager, Tony Neading, leads a team that coaches and trains approximately 100 employees annually in Lean and Six Sigma courses. Lean Six Sigma is a method that uses a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation.

“We value our employees, their desire to grow their skills and work as a team to put their knowledge to work to improve our company,” said Neading. “We leverage Performance Excellence training, management coaching, and projects to benchmark best practices across our sites to continuously improve productivity, safety, and operations.”

“I enjoy working at Wacker and the opportunities to increase my knowledge and skills in ways that leverage my experience to continue contributing to the company’s growth and success in new and different ways,” said Sheikh.

The Lean Six Sigma methodology aligns well with Wacker’s mission: Creating Tomorrow's Solutions and its commitment to excellence as it addresses sustained quality improvement. Since initiated in 2017, more than 500 employees supporting Wacker Chemical Corporation operations and functional areas in North and Central America have received performance excellence training.
