54 SMT007 MAGAZINE I AUGUST 2018 in the sense of you have a robust process that runs day in and day out and just getting the job done, meeting your reliability needs, and helping you get your quality target. If you are not cleaning, and you are considering it, the same questions apply: How can your process be helped by cleaning? Is operation meeting its goals and can cleaning be a value adder? Most of our customers believe that it is. No one's eager to clean, because the perception is that doing more is never easier than doing less. However, sometimes doing more delivers a great deal of value. That's how we view cleaning and how most of our customers view it. Las Marias: Is there anything else you would like to add? Forsythe: I think there's one thing that might be good to cover. Our philosophy focuses on where science and care converge. And we believe in pushing the science ahead. We do a lot of R&D, we do a lot of technical papers, and we're always working on new products and staying engaged with the industry. We help customers meet their technical needs because our industry changes the world every day. We're inventing new things that have new requirements. The other important part of that concept is this idea of care about the outcomes for our customers. If someone's having a bad day today, we're standing next to them tomorrow to offer our expertise, as quickly as we can. Their success is our success. Las Marias: Great! Tom, thank you very much again for your time. Forsythe: Thank you. SMT007 Photos courtesy of Kyzen.
