Ed Ballina
Welcome to the Manufacturing Meetup Podcast, the show where we kick back on our downtime and get real about efficiency on the plant floor.

So if you’re wondering why you should tune in and listen to Alvaro and I, first of all, we wanna make it fun but instructive. It’s an opportunity for us to share some of our experiences, hear yours, and maybe provide some tips and some ideas that you can use to improve your manufacturing experience.

Alvaro Cuba
Guys, when you finish your shift what you want? A bar a coffee shop? Whatever- come! This is the meet up Alvaro and Ed we are waiting for you.

Ed Ballina
But we’re not picking up your tab. We’re not paying for your drinks, okay? You bring your own corporate purchase card. You’re not using mine. I almost got fired for that one time.

Alvaro Cuba
Hahaha!
No, have a better idea. We’ll pay the one who has the worst joke.

Ed Ballina
Yeah, there’ll be something extra for them.
