Congratulations go to the main site powder coating team who have scooped the 2015 annual Greenfield 5S lean champions’ award. The team, headed up by Team Leader Matt Martin have won this award for the second time, continuing to work hard to make on-going improvements to their working practices, organisation and housekeeping across their area. Some notable changes include the introduction of standardised setting sheets per component, reorganisation and added improvements to safety in the powder application area, new powder storage and handling methods, introduction of new plant maintenance schedule programme including lock-out / tag-out procedures plus daily working procedures.

All of these improvements have contributed to increased production times, reduction in rejected painted parts and improved safety within the area. This has provided customers with an even higher standard of quality to their finished components.

Well done and congratulations to the team!
