AJA Consulting Firm
Riordan Manufacturing, Inc. is an enterprise leading in global plastic production. Currently they have four locations in California, Michigan, Georgia, and China. However, some significant areas are keeping the company from escalating into the 21st century.

Compatibility and easy to use systems will help keep time effectiveness top priority. During the globalization preparation, Riordan Manufacturing needs to assure vendors along with stakeholders that the company will keep its competitive edge globally and domestically.
