Hytrol Conveyor Commitment to Lean Principles Yields Industry Best Practices


Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2014 -- Hytrol Conveyor Company, Inc., manufacturer of advanced conveyor systems, controls, and solutions, practices lean principles at the core of everything since 2004. The unique way of thinking is a philosophy built on efficiency that offers the most value to our customer. Hytrol values the problem solving process by streamlining to improve production and eliminate waste.

Chris Glenn, Vice President of Manufacturing and Engineering Operations at Hytrol noted, “We’ve built our company around operator-centric processes. There is a level of value that an operator brings to the manufacturing and assembly of a product that a piece of automation does not always give you. We are continually looking at ways to improve our value streams, and the feedback from our people is really important. Every system we put in place is geared toward supporting that operator and getting product out the door. By continually investing in our people, we are able to offer a competitive advantage to our customers.”

Hytrol is committed to building the best equipment in the industry. By evaluating what other companies are doing, what is working, what is not, Hytrol is able to build a foundation for continuous process improvement.

“Our employees are the heartbeat of this company. They take pride in what they do, and they do it better than anyone in the industry. Teamwork and collaboration are two major components of the success we have had in our lean journey. If you walk into our facility, you will see people committed to producing a quality product—people who are passionate about what they do. And we are continually reinventing ourselves and our processes to deliver the best service and the best equipment to our customers,” shared Glenn.
