Welcome to Arete' IndustriesArete` Industries was conceived by two entreprenuers, Leon Tupper and Tom Monley, who on a number of occassions had been asked, by management familiar with their talents and skills, to assist in resolving complex issues having an impact on productivity and quality.
In the spring of the year 2000 Leon and Tom began reflecting on their recent experiences. They concluded that America's competitiveness had more to do with being effective than efficient and as a result they formed Arete (Being the Best You Can Be) Industries in June of the year 2000.

They can efficiently, effectively determine whether or not there is an opportunity to assist a customer/client in improving the productivity and quality of a process, and providing a proposal with several options focused on:
