Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2014 -- LEM Products, Inc. and CEO Maureen O’Connor, continues to point their main focus towards LEAN Manufacturing. According to O’Connor, continuing to invest in LEAN is essential for protecting their customers from ever-increasing costs associated with materials. New statistics show that material costs are escalating at a 7 to 10% rate, making in critical for the identification material manufacturing company to improve operational efficiencies.
“LEM’s competitive edge is rapid customer response with competitive pricing. We still operate based on customer satisfaction as the benchmark for our success – that is our culture,” O’Conner stated.
LEAN is described as the set of tools that assist in both the identification and elimination of waste. Steadily eliminating waste greatly improves quality of air and also assists in reducing both production time and material costs. Examples of tools used include Value Stream Mapping, Kanban and Five S.
“Waste is not good for our planet, and waste does not support competitive advantage”, says Ms. O’Connor, “therefore a Lean culture is environmentally sound and is an excellent business strategy.” Because LEAN focuses on getting the right materials to the right place in a timely fashion, O’Connor believes customer service will improve as well.
