Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, 2012/09/10 - In order to remain at the forefront of the manufacturing resurgence in North America, automated equipment and services provider Eclipse Automation embarked on a four month process flow streamlining initiative - EclipseAutomation.com.
Eclipse Automation today announced the completion of a four month process flow streamlining initiative. The initiative was centered about training, documentation and standardization of processes throughout the entire company. Rapid growth in sales and manufacturing prompted the need for a company-wide evaluation of processes and their associated systems.
The training and evaluation focused on implementing assurances for continuous improvement and manufacturing excellence through anticipated periods of increased growth and diversification.
Coming out of second quarter with over 6 million in deliveries and over 4.2 million in sales in June alone, Eclipse Automation CEO Steve Mai is confident in the capabilities of his team, and wants to ensure that they have the right tools to utilize their skills in the most efficient manner.
“Un-disciplined growth can be a struggle for companies in our industry. With the acquisition of the Forefront Automation assets, we gained a great deal of knowledge, skill and talent. Bringing everyone on to the same page with a strong directional focus will allow us to maximize these assets and continue to provide amazing systems for our customers over the long term,” said Mai.
Training and implementation activities took place two times per week over the duration of the project, and primarily involved the teams from management, sales, and applications engineering. Eclipse currently used a comprehensive proprietary project management system that has won accolades from their customers. This newest initiative utilizes and builds on this backbone.
Going forward, Eclipse intends on using this latest initiative as a springboard for ongoing training and development.
