19 Straumann US Employees Graduated from the Advanced Manufacturing Leader Training program

Haverhill and Andover, MA (August 13, 2021) – The pandemic may have slowed them down, but it didn’t stop a group of 19 Straumann US employees from graduating from the Advanced Manufacturing Leader Training program. The program is one of many courses and trainings offered through Northern Essex Community College’s Center for Corporate and Community Education. Topics include Performance Management, Team Building, LEAN Manufacturing and Conflict Resolution. Straumann is a global leader in tooth replacement and orthodontic solutions, headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, with a facility in Andover, MA.

Straumann first ran this program in 2019 with the goal of providing soft skills leadership training. “During the program there was a great bonding with colleagues. We became more comfortable with each other – like family,” says graduate Jose Ortiz-Lucas.

This session at Straumann started in January of 2020, but had to be suspended due to Covid in March. Courses resumed in November of 2020 and the employees finally graduated just last month. Graduate Mariah Wentzell says “The group leader position I’m in now at Straumann is my first management position. This program helped me feel more confident in my leadership role at Straumann.”

Northern Essex plans to offer the program again at Straumann for their employees in 2022. For more information on Corporate and Community Education, you can visit the website or contact
