In order to be a contender when it comes to delivering 50 or 1,000,000 units, it should be viewed as a “Production Line”, similar to that of the automotive industry. By applying a disciplined approach, logistics, management and a reliable technology such as moladi, a project can be completed on time, in budget without forfeiting quality. We are geared to help and coach TEAMmoladi partners and customers, to become more productive, profitable and gain a competitive advantage.
