Transformation, continuous improvement make Spirax Sarco a Top Plant
One of the many reasons Spirax Sarco was chosen for a 2007 Plant Engineering Top Plant award was the transformation the plant has made. This eight minute video explains it all.
From state-of-the-art automated equipment to highly-trained, customer-focused, product group teams, Blythewood, SC-based Spirax Sarco applies Lean manufacturing and continuous improvement practices throughout the manufacturing process. These, along with its manufacturing excellence and best practice initiatives, are just some of the reasons Spirax Sarco was chosen as one of Plant Engineering magazine’s 2007 Top Plant award winners.
“Continuous improvement became a standard part of daily life for everyone here,” said Bruce Moninghoff, vice president of sales at Spirax Sarco . “Every management and production associate focuses daily on continuous improvement activities that ensure we deliver quality products and services to our customers.”
But there is more to how this steam control product company excels than manufacturing buzz-words. “The most important service we provide our customers doesn’t come in a crate,” said Spirax Sarco marketing manager Steve Gow. “It’s our people. They’re our greatest asset. It’s our people that give Spirax Sarco the edge.”
Another reason Spirax Sarco was chosen for Plant Engineering’s prestigious award is the transformation it has made since the year 2000, which is emphasized in this eight-minute video .
