Lead by learning and leaning—it’s Reggie Clow’s m.o. “We practice lean every day,” says Clow. Living lean helped metal fabricator Clow overcome a 23 percent sales freefall in 2009 and will help it absorb a projected 10 percent drop in 2015 due to a soft commodity market. After more than doubling capacity since 2011 and watching sales soar 47 percent to $62 million, Clow’s filling the downtime with projects to gear up for the next big wave. His slogan: “We’re going to get better every day until we get perfect.”
