Inalfa extend their Lean Enterprise

S A Partners have been working with key client, Inalfa Roof Systems, for the past 4 years in manufacturing sites in Europe, North America, Mexico, China and Korea. Inalfa recognises that almost 70% of their final sales costs reside in its’ bought-in materials and components. They have thus taken the bold step of spreading their best practice learning throughout their supply chain.

In 2013 they will work closely and collaboratively with their top 15 critical suppliers. This latest development takes the initial form of in-house accredited training followed by on site workshops and on-going mentoring of projects.

All suppliers attending the training receive a certificate of accreditation by Cardiff University’s Lean Competency System.  The training is highly oriented to delivering practical benefits.Typical benefits that have been achieved to-date include: transport reduction of 20%; packaging cost reduction of 15%; quality defects rates retuned to zero; and, a 20% reduction in labour content for a production cell.
