“For the last three months we have had the pleasure of working with Bill Whittier, one of Maine MEP’s senior project managers, on the design of our new plant in Saco. He not only provided us with a blueprint:  he completely transformed our organization. The skills that Bill has taught our organization have had an immediate impact. This training should be mandatory for all Maine companies and organizations. This is just the start of our partnership with Maine MEP and we are excited to work together moving forward.”
