Being “lean“ mean eliminating waste and increasing profitability
The tight credit market is forcing plastics manufacturers to look for new ways of cutting costs. For immediate and sustainable impact on your bottom line, our plastics team can help you implement “lean” operating systems that will help with operations improvement. You can depend on the plastics team to come to your plant understanding the basics of your processes and quick to learn about your unique situation.
Our proven lean manufacturing techniques help plastics manufacturers use manpower, inventory, and time more effectively for overall operations improvement while at the same time becoming more responsive to customer demand and maintaining or improving quality.
Lean process development can also help you increase capacity and take advantage of work transferred from the plastics companies that are expected to close during the economic downturn.
