To whom it may concern

I am very pleased to provide a reference for Dave Wagner and his company CDSL. I am the President of Manufacturing for Proven Partners Group. Proven Partners Group is a contract manufacturer primarily for the food industry. We are a $40M privately held company and have about 375 employees. I have had the pleasure of working with CDSL on several projects over the past 7 years. I have seen CDSL grow with their customer base and continue to provide integrated solutions that deliver results. CDSL has participated and lead project teams for us in the past and continues to be part of our service offerings for our customers.

The largest project that we worked together on was a 330,000 sq.ft. Cake mix plant. CDSL provided system solutions to integrate several packaging lines being installed into a new building. This was a $75M project utilizing old equipment retrofitted with some modern technologies. CDSL worked with our Engineering group, our clients Engineering groups, and all the OEM’s to integrate processing, pouching, cartoning, conveying, case packing, and automatic palletizing. CDSL also supplied line monitoring solutions for the plant floor. This allowed any one in the plant to see the line efficiency as well as any maintenance and material needs for any particular production line. The monitoring solution was very instrumental in driving line efficiencies and reducing cost. The plant has ran very efficient over the past 6 years with out fail.

CDSL technical knowledge, inter-personal skills, leadership, and enthusiasm make them an asset to our organization. The ability to understand our client’s needs and deliver results makes them a strategic partner. All of this combined has earned my respect and endorsement.
