Seitz' recent capital equipment acquisitions and investments in evolving its lean practices were profiled in the July 27th Issue of Plastics News. In the news article "Conn.-based molder Seitz invests in equipment, lean manufacturing", author Frank Antosiewicz details some of the latest procurements and process improvements underway as part of the company's long-term growth strategy. Seitz, dedicated Kaizen practitioners, regularly evaluate and improve processes, procedures and glean insights to help increase production efficiency, increase on-time delivery and improve customer satisfaction. The new capital equipment mentioned in Mr. Antosiewicz's article will position Seitz to satisfy the growing and diversifying needs of today's precision gear and component customers, but it also positions Seitz to increase its efficient production of complex assemblies and electromechanical contracted product for customers who need this level of partnership. And the company's recent lean process work helps increase internal efficiency, quality measures and workflow.
The growth at Seitz is a testament to the willingness of its valued customers to leverage Seitz' exceptional collaborative development capabilities to design, engineer and manufacture better-working products more efficiently. Our ability to do more for customers makes it possible to expand our equipment to deliver the throughput and precision these customers demand. This expanded capability also allows our customers to reduce the number of suppliers in their chain, get better quality products, and build end-user preference and brand.
