Organization, Security and Training

January 17, 2014

What if I told you that you could cut any task time in half?


Imagine how much more could be completed; how much less stress you would have and how enjoyable everything could be.


Well this is the basis for “Lean”. Taking small tasks and breaking them down to make them faster, easier and overall more efficient. Small improvements here and there can lead to a huge reduction in overall time consumption, leading to more production. This was what was done when Ross took the initiative and cleaned, organized and improved our Aluminum Extrusion Manufacturing Area. Without any guidance or pre-existing request he took Randy’s work area and stream lined it to use less space, consume less time and provide greater efficiency and accuracy when our resident Aluminum Mastermind is hard at work.


Along with the cleaning and organizing, we also installed a simple chain and lock to keep the Aluminum Chop Saw secure until ready to be used by trained personnel. Training and use can be provided upon request by either Randy or Luis.

Would someone please throw a Yaskawa VFD or a Parker extrusion piece at George Bush or Barrack Obama the next time you see one of them? It might help business.
