In 2001, David founded Lean Associates, Inc., a consulting firm dedicated to supporting companies that are pursuing implementation of the Toyota Production System.

David has supported many companies in a variety of industries including healthcare, automotive, aerospace, wood and plastic products, chemical processing, metal machining, fabricating, welding, and assembly operations, and leads lean activities in both manufacturing and non-manufacturing work areas.
