On July 28th It was officially announced that Möllertech Wales has been awarded the 2016 Agamus Automotive lean production award in the category of international SME.
International SME: MöllerTech Ltd., Cwmfelinfach, Wales - Judges Comments:
"The wave" - that could be a suitable title for the journey the MöllerTech plant in Cwmfelinfach, Wales, has been on. After facing a sudden growth of turnover, waste (especially over-production and quality issues) increased until the management was forced to act. And the reaction was remarkable: Instead of abandoning the existing production system, that obviously didn't make the plant work cost-efficiently enough, the plant management prescribed itself a "90 Day's Live or Die"-program for a restart. Realizing that a production system can't be successful without an improvement culture, they focused on that culture in a way, the jury has seldom seen before. Mobilization of the entire workforce, mutual and lived respect and joint enjoyment of Kaizen are the key aspects.
Möllertech will now attend the 11th congress for automotive lean production to be held at the Robert Bosh Plant at Blaichach GmbH on the 29th & 30th of November to receive the official award.
