Lean practices take a holistic approach that includes every aspect of the manufacturing process. One of the most obvious changes brought to VIP/ATC by lean involved the plant’s layout. Careful reorganizing freed up 6,500 square feet of space for additional storage. This consolidation helped VIP/ATC reduce expenses and that affects pricing for our products. It’s just one example of how lean is a significant advantage for VIP/ATC and our customers. SERVICE AND SOLUTIONS 17
