Lean Tours

Our Lean Journey

Lean manufacturing is an integral part of the SnapCab story. Our repeatable processes, driven by lean best practices (such as 5S, Kanban, Kaizen and standard work) allow us to eliminate waste, reduce cost, ensure timely delivery, and remain highly responsive to customer needs. This enables us to provide outstanding quality at lower prices. We also prize continuous development and innovation. By empowering our people to identify challenges and create solutions, we are able to improve today – and deliver even more exceptional interiors to our customers tomorrow. Paneling systems simplified. It’s our promise to each and every customer.

Why Lean?

Reduced lead-time, improved quality, reduction of inventory, reduction/elimination of down equipmenFix What Bugs Yout, teamwork and improved communications are just some of the reasons. To eliminate waste, we incorporate 5S (Sort, Shine, Set in order, Standardize and Sustain), Total Productive maintenance (TPM), Standard Work, Kanbans, Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and Value Stream Mapping. We also reward our employees for mistakes. Eliminating the fear of making mistakes helps to empower our employees to make improvements.
