In our Factory Excellence programme the main target is to improve the performance of our plants.
The programme runs on the basis of three pillars: Satisfy our customers – develop our people – reduce costs. During a research phase we evaluated thoroughly the current status quo of our plants with regard to operations, performance governance and people development.
Based on the results, Factory Excellence could be developed further and tailored right to the plants needs. Focus is the close involvement of all industrial employees.
With regard to operations, another important focus is on the reduction of waste and the saving of material and reduction of scrap. We are always striving to strenghten the awareness for all these environmental and cost-saving topics among our employees.
