Value added through Lean Manufacturing
Lean Manufacturing Philosophy
Creating more value for our customers with fewer resources
Simply put, that’s the goal of our Lean Manufacturing program.
Our commitment to Lean began in earnest about 10 years ago. Timing is everything. With the right people in the right roles, we transformed Lean principals into action. Since then, we’ve never looked back. Today, our Lean processes are fully integrated into our ISO program.
Continuous Improvement at every level
We still have our original corporate-wide metrics: Quality, Cost, Delivery, Safety, and Morale. However, we now have visuals and real-time metrics in the Lean Cells themselves.
Keeping our eye on the ball, every day
We aren’t done and never will be. A true Lean mindset demands constant vigilance and forward thinking. We am proud to say that now our associates—at every level—are the ones who continually ask, “How can we improve this?” An ongoing quest to create more value for our customers with fewer resources.
