L.E. Smith Holds 11th Kaizen Event
“Change always comes bearing gifts.” -Price Pritchett
L.E. Smith proved Price Pritchett right this past week, when they set out to change the current status of their maintenance department. Buried in an over-abundance of outdated and inefficient tools and materials, the 11 cross-functional associates participating set out to change not only the physical limitations of the maintenance department, but the maintenance response process across all departments. With 82 years of combined experience leading them, the team cleaned the maintenance room and developed new processes for addressing the maintenance needs of all areas throughout the company. Within 2 days, the team recycled over 7000 lbs. of steel. Now that’s a heavy change!
