This business system brings commonality in approach and focus throughout the various businesses and industries within Steel Partners. Lean manufacturing practices provide customers with continuous improvements and profitable growth by eliminating waste and streamlining processes

On Wednesday, January 11th, Gabrielle Doyon, Lean Engineer, and Michael Bauman, Sales & Operations Planning Manager, delivered an inspirational presentation sharing best practices from HandyTube with other Steel Partners businesses.  Doyon and Bauman shared the process used in their 2016 Kaizen Event to reduce WIP (“Work in Process”) inventory and improve flow in manufacturing.  Their efforts in this event led not only to reduced manufacturing cycle times, decreased need to hold stock material, and increased flexibility, but also increased employee engagement. Doyon and Bauman received enthusiastic applause both for their performance on stage and at the facility.
