Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle chose to launch his Next Generation Manufacturing Plan, which focused on efficiency and lean principles and practices, from the manufacturing floor of GenMet. “To remain competitive, our (Wisconsin) manufacturers must continue to become leaner and more efficient,” Governor Doyle said during his visit to GenMet.
“These practices are the foundation on which GenMet has built its success,” says GenMet’s president, Mary Isbister. “We have infused GenMet employees with confidence in these practices, purchased new equipment and increased automation to enable continued growth companywide.”
GenMet is proud to utilize lean manufacturing practices such as 5S, Value Stream Mapping, 6 Sigma, Standardized Work, etc. These activities give GenMet a competitive advantage by reducing lead times and improving quality performance.
