Lean Practices: Reducing waste and increasing efficiency saves our customers
time and money.
For Rapid-Line “Lean” is more than efficient processes and waste reduction, for us Lean is also a way of life. Internally we have been using Lean practices in a continuous effort to eliminate waste and increase efficiency and workflow. Obviously, our increased efficiency and cost reductions benefit our customer via cost savings, but Rapid-Line is also a source to aid our customers in their Lean goals. With our product complete capabilities and shortened lead times, we make inventory reductions and just in time deliveries possible. We also make it possible to eliminate the waste of multiple suppliers for one product.
Green Practices: Our Commitment to the Environment
At Rapid-Line being green has been a priority for a long time. We recognize the value of our environment and why we need to limit the impact we have on it. Anybody can say they are green but, at Rapid-Line we have made the commitment to continuously review our environmental impact and how we can reduce it. We participate with environmental associations and networks to continually find areas where we can improve. The nice thing about striving to be green is that sometimes we and our customers receive the additional benefit of cost savings.
