How we reduced our lead time by 75% in a high mix/low volume market
Stef Huybrechts - Operations Director & Coach at Esco Couplings
Esco Couplings NV manufactures a large variety of customized couplings for different markets. In the past, the variety of products resulted in unpredictable delivery times and the commitments to the customer could only be met by extraordinary efforts. A team-oriented business strategy based on QRM transformed the company and resulted in a lead time reduction of 75%, by setting up teams in the office and the production.
Esco Couplings NV belongs to the world's top gear and disc-couplings producers. They deliver their products to diverse markets, ranging from high-speed trains and special customer-oriented applications up to F1 teams. This Belgian family owned business with over 65 years of experience employs 250 people worldwide.
