November 11th, 2016, Denver, CO and Indianapolis, IN – Arch, Inc. and ROWhy Company today announced the formation of Toward Zero Co. With the combined resources of Arch and ROWhy, Toward Zero Co., is ideally positioned to help move customers toward zero waste and tangible profit growth through integration of business and manufacturing systems with automation technology.
The decision to combine ROWhy’s shop floor automation and connectivity expertise with Arch’s business and manufacturing consulting services was made as part of the companies’ desire to provide the most comprehensive Toward Zero™ services possible to customers. Toward Zero Co. is uniquely positioned to help customers identify waste, create a plan, and execute on that plan to reduce or eliminate waste.
Arch founding partner Aaron Muhl said, “Toward Zero Co. is unique in the market. Our continuous improvement and culture change experts bring hands on experience that can’t be found at a traditional system integrator. Our automation and manufacturing IT experts bring execution experience that can’t be found at the Big 5 consulting firms. Toward Zero Co. is your comprehensive partner for world class manufacturing.”
Don Rahrig, ROWhy Company founder agreed and added, “Our customers rely on us to help them align their manufacturing capabilities to their business goals. Through improving culture, process and technology, we seek to help customers change the way they do work, so they can focus on the quality of the work itself. Toward Zero Co. is about moving customers toward zero loss to quality, efficiency and productivity.”
Muhl went on to say, “The new combined website will also benefit customers, offering them one source for the knowledge-based information and resources they’ll need.”
Additionally, Muhl and Rahrig assert that current Arch and ROWhy customers will experience no decline in service or support. If anything, customers will enjoy broadened service offerings, and greater access to real-time control and data-driven predictive analytics as a result of the combined 50+ years of experience and expertise both companies bring to the new Toward Zero Co.
Toward Zero Co. will be headquartered in Centennial, Colorado with offices in Fort Collins, Colorado, Dayton, Ohio, Noblesville, Indiana and Detroit, Michigan.
