TBR Associates Improving People, Processes, Profits.

Saddle Brook, NJ: Renowned laundry industry operator and consultant J.R. Ryan has launched TBR Associates. Part of the Tingue family of companies, the new company helps linen, industrial and institutional laundries and manufacturing companies reduce operating costs, save energy, increase capacity, improve throughput and promote worker safety, among other improvements, while identifying and removing the systemic, often unseen waste that impedes growth and inhibits consistent profitability. Combining Ryan's 30-year track record of operational expertise, senior level management, sales growth and consulting with the Tingue organization's 110 years of accumulated wisdom, TBR Associates devises, develops and implements custom strategies based on proven principles including Lean Enterprise and Six Sigma for results that are both quantifiable on the bottom line and sustainable over the long term.

"As both a successful owner operator and as a consultant, J.R. offers a rare understanding of the challenges facing laundries today and has the knowledge, experience and professionalism to deliver real results," says CEO David Tingue. "His ideas are sensible, insightful and logical, he's careful to involve everyone on the team in the process and I know he'll be quite an asset to anyone concerned about reducing costs or improving margins." Ryan addresses strategic planning, process improvement, operations, sales and service management, supply chain management, human resources and equipment to impact every facet of an organization.
