How to serve the medical device industry better thanks to QRM
François Ory – CEO at Forecreu
After a severe downturn, Forecreu diversified into orthopedics based on their unique proprietary technology. Despite the clear attractiveness of its technology, the company’s long lead times (up to 25 weeks) were hampering its growth. To fix these problems and capture the share of business that Forecreu deserves, the management decided to implement QRM. With a new space for working better together, providing on-time guarantee and a 50% lead time reduction, their new QRM-engine is now delivering its first results.
Forecreu is a family owned specialty metal-processing company with 80 employees and customers in 45 countries. It uses capital intensive steel & alloy extrusion, rolling and wire drawing processes to produce cannulated/extra thick wall titanium and stainless steels tubes/bars for orthopedic applications.
