We provide complete advisory, consulting, and implementation of lean manufacturing principles for the plant and office.

Sauer Planning LLC was founded in May of 2009, in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on the principle that our implementation of productivity improvements is a natural path to creating repeatable processes leading to profitability, quality, safety, enhanced throughput, and a culture of trust and harmony among employees.

Mark Sauer brings over 30 years of management experience including training at the Toyota Supplier Service Center in Kentucky. Along with his son Dan, Mark’s main focus is now as it has always been on implementation. Utilizing designed training programs and a complete set of formats for any and all areas of Lean Manufacturing, you will be left with a fully functioning system geared toward sustaining a continuous improvement program. Our standardized systems are very adaptable to ISO and other quality systems.

Sauer Planning LLC leaves in its wake changed companies and dramatically changed workforces.

David Sachse, President of Stoelting/Polar Ware LLC in Kiel, Wisconsin says of his experience with Mark,  “Mark Sauer’s approach to Lean Manufacturing provides your employees a ‘calming practicality’ towards the acceptance of change, making Lean Manufacturing a positive experience for your employees and for your company’s bottom line.”

Dave Hodorff, Vice President of Operations for Brenner Tank Inc., in Fon du lac, Wisconsin continues to accumulate benefits from a 2 year relationship with Mark. “Mark’s knowledge and presentation skills make him a great leader. Working with Mark, changed our organization for the better. He taught skills that many of us will have in our tool boxes throughout our careers.”

Two things place Sauer Planning ahead of all other choices, implementation and sustainability. See for yourself why our Continuous Improvement is in fact CONTINUOUS and will not drop off after our successful implementation of Lean in your facility.
