Lean Techniques | Quality Mould, Inc.

Quality Mould, Inc. manufactures a wide variety of products out of traditional and modern materials in Westmoreland County. They were seeking to expand into new customer markets which would require larger manufacturing facilities and additional machinery and equipment to accommodate this goal.

Catalyst Connection’s Eric MacDonald facilitated a session with Quality Mould management and staff to document the process flow for the new 33,000 square foot Eastpointe facility. They used lean techniques to maximize the value-added flow of materials and to minimize travel distances. Customized training and coaching was delivered to the staff to provide a solid foundation in basic lean principles and 5S, including hands-on experience with a focus on improving visual controls across the facility.
