GREENE, N.Y. — On Feb. 12, 2014, college students participating in the semester in strategic operations (SSO) immersion program from The Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, toured The Raymond Corporation’s manufacturing facility in Greene, New York. Students observed firsthand how Raymond utilizes the Toyota Production System (TPS) principles to achieve operational excellence in manufacturing.

“One of the TPS principles is the process of continuous improvement. Students are able to observe how management at Raymond is fully committed to this process, how the employees are motivated to participate and the manner in which the results are communicated to the company,” says Nagesh Gavirneni, associate professor of operations management at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. “Raymond is a perfect example of innovation in product development, efficiency in operation and excellence in customer relationship.”

“The Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management has partnered with Raymond for more than 15 years in the SSO immersion program. Raymond and Cornell continue to collaborate on various programs to further promote collaboration in industry and academics.”
