Companies actively engaged in Lean offer a treasure trove of information when it comes to their respective Lean journeys. Benchmarking these companies brings you new ideas, an affirmation of your current practices, and an opportunity to be spurred on and take next steps in your own organization. To that end, we are continuing to bring you monthly tours so you can take advantage of this knowledge base. Each plant tour offers a unique opportunity to dialog with peers from across industries and functions about best practices, challenges and solutions to moving your organization forward.
LEAN MANUFACTURING PLANT TOUR
(LIMIT 2 SPOTS PER COMPANY)
Beachley Furniture Company is a custom commercial furniture manufacturer that has been in business since 1887. Their designs begin with professional architectural drawings or a sketch on the back of a napkin - they manufacture your vision. Their clientele includes hotels, restaurants, universities, corporations, and residential clients, and they build everything from banquette seating and case goods to millwork and reception desks.
The Beachley team has worked hard to implement lean into their culture and took the first step by moving 3 multi-floor factories into 1 one-floor continuous flow operation. On the tour, you will see how they build furniture from cutting on the CNC to shipping out the door. They will discuss their current lean initiatives to improve productivity and profitability.
