SIX SIGMA CONSULTANTS AWARDED KEY BHP BILLITON CONTRACT
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - May 1, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Six Sigma Consultants, Inc.
(www.sixsigmaco.com) announces its successful bid to implement a new Six Sigma
program for BHP Billiton, the world's largest diversified resources company. A

three were asked to tender. Of those, SSC was chosen. As Greg Brue, company
president remarks, "The selection process and criteria used for awarding the
contract fundamentally challenged each participant's own Six Sigma capabilities
-- we are excited and honored about this win, as well as about working with BHP
Billiton, a truly world-class company."
As the contract gets under way, SSC is well positioned to help BHP Billiton's
Base Metals division succeed in its quest to secure considerable, measurable
