Robert Werner, well known Continuous Improvement consultant to distributors of industrial gases and welding hardgoods, has announced the formation of a new business venture, RW Consulting.

In this consultancy Werner will continue to provide expert services on continuous improvement to clients, as he has been doing with The Edwards Group International, LLC. Werner founded The Edwards Group International in 1985 and sold the business in 2015 to Jonda Vance. In April 2016, The Edwards Group International, LLC company assets and customer base were transferred to RW Consulting.

Readers of CryoGas International know both Werner and Vance from the many excellent articles they have contributed to this magazine over the years. John Raquet, gasworld Publisher and owner of CryoGas International, met with Werner recently to discuss his continued involvement in this magazine.

Raquet says, “We are pleased to report that going forward, Werner will continue to offer his insights on operations excellence to readers of CryoGas International and will have a regular column in this magazine in 2017.” Stay tuned.
