Udo Jahn

Hi I'm Udo

I may like cheap wine, but I don’t like cheap business decisions. I tell it like it is. In life. In business. In manufacturing. After working in the manufacturing sector for over 40 years, I have developed a keen eye. It has provided me with a unique understanding of why businesses fail and close, and why businesses succeed and grow. I’ve been known to say there are 3 things a manufacturing business needs to be successful: skill development, innovation, and automation. But there is a lot more to it than that.
