Following an investment by the company to enhance efficiency in its work practices and introduce lean manufacturing principles.
Starting on the shop floor, fifteen employees have undergone on-the-job training, covering problem solving, team working, health and safety regulations and the implementation of visual management systems. The aim of lean manufacturing is to eliminate waste and Baddeley Brothers is implementing the 5S method – sorting, simplifying, sweeping, standardising and sustaining.
Soloman trainer Paul Pestel commented: “By investing in training and skills, Baddeley Brothers is laying down the groundwork for future growth. We used existing project work as the focus on the training and its already delivering measurable business improvements, which benefits customers by minimising waste and increasing efficiency.”
