Latest storage solution provides another way to help businesses implement Lean manufacturing practices and optimize workflow
Allentown, Pa. (July 29, 2009) - Stanley Vidmar, a manufacturer of premium custom storage solutions for use in a wide range of industries, is now offering its customers another Lean manufacturing solution: the 5S Cabinet. Made with a durable cabinet case featuring metal pegboard inserts and clear acrylic or solid hinged doors, the 5S Cabinet helps businesses better organize and manage workspace, resulting in improved efficiency.
"At the core of Vidmar's storage solutions is how our product helps businesses with their Lean manufacturing processes by saving space, time, and money," says Jill Wheeler, Stanley Vidmar's vice president of sales and marketing.
The 5S Cabinet with clear acrylic doors provides instant visibility for an at-a-glance account of tools and/or parts at point of use. The solid hinged door option provides additional metal pegboard storage to optimize every inch of the cabinet.
The new cabinet is named 5S after the same-named philosophy of Lean manufacturing that focuses on organizing and managing a workspace to eliminate waste and improve workflow. Specifically, Vidmar delivers the methodology of "Phase 2: Set in Order," which emphasizes efficient and effective storage solutions.
"Efficiency inherently lowers operational costs," adds Wheeler. "And Stanley Vidmar products inherently lead to optimal organization and efficiency."
Stanley Vidmar follows Lean practices in its own manufacturing operations. "Because it's part of our culture, our Storage Sales Engineers understand how to help companies gain value through streamlined work processes. That's why our first step working with a company is always a free site analysis. It helps us understand a business's operations so we can effectively provide solutions that bring Lean to life," Wheeler says.
Stanley® Vidmar® products include high-density modular storage cabinets, adjustable racking systems, toolboxes, container storage, vertical lift systems, workstations and benching, Electro-Static Dissipative (ESD)-protective products, and more.
