Lean Management

Efficient value chain for competitive operations

Lean management is a key pillar of our company strategy. Using a range of different tools, we review the optimization potential of our processes in order to raise efficiency levels. As a provider with an extensive product portfolio and significant production quantities, it is crucially important for us to stay competitive over the long term and to meet our customers’ requirements.

In order to incorporate lean management in our business operations, we follow various procedures to identify areas of potential improvement, analyze problems, single out their causes, and eliminate them: tools such as Improvement KATA or Shop Floor Management are just two of the methodologies that we use. Our aim here is not only to optimize our value chain but in particular to develop our working environment, and actively involve our staff in shaping how we work.
