Situated in the extremely resourceful geography of Southern Alabama, Muskogee Technology is a tribally-owned manufacturing company that employs the core values of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, such as fairness, perseverance, empowerment, and accomplishment in its organizational workflows. These values inspire Muskogee Technology, the only federally recognized tribe of Native Americans in the state, to build a positively reinforced workforce that produces the best manufacturing outcomes for its clients. By nurturing and empowering a disciplined team of professionals in-house, the company aims to service industry needs by sustaining a productive workforce.

To elucidate on the complete attention Muskogee Technology pays toward a customer’s problems, Woodruff recalls a story of a recent project where a manufacturing customer faced discrepancies in their scrap rates and inventory totals.
“This customer is well-established, having been present in the aerospace marketplace for decades,” he says. Muskogee Technology conducted internal investigative time studies and noticed that the scrap rate data depicted within the programs was extremely low whereas the collective data derived from the customer’s assessment suggested otherwise. After a thorough investigation, it was discovered that the customer had erroneous calculations in the amount of raw materials they consumed and considered over half of the resources to be scrap. With Muskogee Technology’s expertise and notice to detail, the problem, presumed as a communication issue, was determined to be a technical one in material consumption calculation by unit of measure. The company offered a string of in-house solutions to investigate and fix the problem first-hand and helped the customer recover inventory discrepancies and improved accuracy for material purchasing and planning.
Muskogee Technology, with its team of highly motivated Team Members and a broad spectrum of solution offerings, continually drives innovation in the manufacturing realm. Moving forward, the company seeks to deliver the complete customer experience, bolster relationships with strategic partners, and promote the importance of establishing a wholesome, value-based workplace.
