Onsite Insights visit to Morgan Furniture
Morgan Furniture is a wholly British, design orientated, business making seating and tables for the contract market from its dedicated 4500m2 factory in Hampshire. It is a family-owned business.
At Morgan we believe the design and manufacture of truly original, high-quality furniture is the result of passion, care, design integrity, experience, craftsmanship and an unfaltering dedication to quality. This commitment could not be realised without fully integrating the design and manufacturing processes. At our factory and studio in Hampshire we start the process with trees and finish with beautifully crafted chairs.
Lean & Continuous Improvement
Our journey in Lean and Continuous Improvement began over 20 years ago and similar to many organisations the path has not always been straight. We have re-focused the activity in recent years to build capability across the whole organisation; we have begun development of our own Lean Academy and will share with visitors how this has worked and is delivering results. We have embraced all of the key Lean tools and are proud of the team’s improvement initiatives. We will share with visitors on the site tour the visual management that we use to support strategy deployment and improvement projects.
Our improvement projects are owned and embraced by each of our team members. On
the visit we will share with you how we support and celebrate these as part of our journey to excellence. You will also see how we have created ownership of Five S and improvement in every area of both the factory and operations.
Our products are bespoke and hand crafted. Our clients include both international hospitality, workplace, healthcare and cruise organisations. We will share with visitors how we embrace our core value of being ‘Design-Led within our manufacturing process.
