Redzone Community


The Largest Community of its Kind

More than 1300 manufacturers striving for improved productivity and engagement.

One thing you’ll find about the Redzone Community is that it’s extremely collaborative and that was probably one of the unintended benefits that we found throughout this entire process.”​

Todd Dutkin | CEO – Fresca Foods

We created the Redzone Community to provide its members with access to some of the brightest and best minds in manufacturing; all working hard to overcome the same operational and business challenges as each other.

There is nothing like ‘seeing it for yourself’ or ‘hearing it from the horse’s mouth’, so the Redzone Community provides the venues and forums for sharing ideas, experiences and best practices with your peers, both near and far.

Bringing together a network of leaders from 1300+ plants just like yours, the Community provides the inspiration, motivation and real life examples that keep you pushing forward on your improvement journey, no matter what your starting point; as well as helping you avoid some of the big pitfalls along the way.

By facilitating relationships throughout the community, members frequently visit each other’s plants, attend their Kaizen events; even giving supervisors an opportunity to spend a week learning in another plant environment. We understand how valuable this exposure can be for mid-size companies that have often grown based on internal ‘tribal knowledge’.
