Empowering Workers

Why MiddleGround Capital is different?

I used to think poorly of myself because I dropped out of college to go to work for Toyota Motor Corporation as an hourly line worker putting bumpers on Toyota Camry’s. It also was a disappointment to my parents.

Toyota provided me with an opportunity to learn and develop and I tried to make the most of it every day.

After 30 years in operations, I find so much joy in seeing the difference that teaching others how to improve their own jobs makes in their self confidence.

At Alco Manufacturing Corporation LLC one of our focuses has been improving set up time

We are not at Toyota levels yet (or even close), but we have improved set ups that used to take days to about 40 minutes.

Check out Ray, one of our team members in Grand Haven explaining how this has made his job better.

Check our that enthusiasm. Great job, Ray!
