Lean Manufacturing

As far as our manufacturing process goes, we’ve been practicing lean manufacturing since 2003. At that time, we began a cultural shift across all levels of our organization toward focusing on how we can do our jobs better, smarter and more efficiently. By embracing lean manufacturing principles, we’ve been able to slash waste and unnecessary movements which increased productivity and led to improved delivery time.

Some tools we’ve adopted to help us in our pursuit of lean:

  • Cellular Manufacturing
  • Kaizens
  • Kanbans
  • Visual reinforcement & visual scheduling
Lean Manufacturing

As an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturer, our Lean achievements have been highlighted at trade events and in trade publications. We co-sponsored a Lean Champions Roundtable with the Massachusetts Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MassMEP) to discuss our Lean practices with representatives from industries such as precision tools, curtains/draperies, footwear soles, foam tape, fiber optics, screen printing, electronic packaging, plastic injection molding, and beverages.

We’re proud to be noted within the industry for how effectively we’ve integrated Lean into our culture across all levels of the organization. We love to talk about Lean Manufacturing, so feel free to call Howard Letendre, Director of Manufacturing, at (508) 885-8252.
