Lean manufacturing is integral to Zechin Industries’ metal stamping, deep drawing, fabricating, machining, tube forming process. The idea of continuous improvement is being implemented in our manufacturing facilities, in conjunction with the 6S program. Lean manufacturing's focus is to incorporate less human effort, less inventory, less time to develop products, and less space to become highly responsive to customer demand while producing top quality products in the most efficient and economical manner possible. 6S is a methodology for organizing, cleaning, developing, and sustaining a productive work environment. We work with small implementation teams from each division within the facility to train and implement the 6S principles (safety, sort, set, shine, standardize, & sustain).
