FROM SOUTH AFRICA
VISITS U. S.
1 HE AMERICAN TAG COMPANY in Belleville, New Jersey,
manufactures shipping tags, merchandise tags, labels,
specialized forms and paperwork systems for national
distribution . . . and in addition to all of these, they
also served recently as a training ground for our partner
When his office was ready to initiate a formal management
services program, Brian Crawford Harrison came
to the United States to observe our management services
operations, particularly those in inventory control. He
studied various techniques and procedures for almost
seven months, including the selection and training of
personnel, the development of management services
work, and the carrying out of specific engagements.
Mr. Harrison helped the American Tag Company
(client of the New York office), install a Profitability
Accounting system. Because of the comprehensive
nature of this system and the number of functions affected
by it, he felt this was an excellent opportunity
for a bird's eye view of an American company's operations.
The photographs on these pages show him as he
learned how an engagement is conducted.
Most of Mr. Harrison's time was spent in New York,
Detroit, Rochester and Montreal. He did, however,
make a short tour of the Western states and also spent
a few days in our Chicago and Milwaukee offices.
