AccuRounds began their lean journey in 1995. In 2006, they became the first contract metalworking company in North America to receive the Northeast Shingo Prize Silver Medal. Remarkably, after realizing this groundbreaking achievement, they reorganized their entire operation, both physically and organizationally. The implementation of a new floor layout designed around value streams and supported by a lean management system provided the platform for an intense focus on process control and customer service. These dramatic changes resulted in:
- Decreased lead times by more than 50%
- Reduced cost of quality to well below 1% of sales
- Improved on-time delivery to greater than 97%
- Enhanced culture of employee alignment & engagement
