The Seraph Manufacturing Excellence Leadership Program offers a distinctive chance for individuals like yourself to actively engage in an in-plant manufacturing assessment, connect with industry executives who can be valuable mentors in your career, and receive a $1,000 scholarship.

On-site assessment

Seraph is a global manufacturing consulting firm that works with some of the world’s largest suppliers and OEMs. Our team is comprised of former CEO, President’s, and Plant Managers at some of the most prominent Tier 1 suppliers.
