Lessons Learned

Thoughts from Ray De Hont on the Met-Pro Lean Transformation initiative

“We’ve dramatically improved the organization of our plant floor, and eliminated the abuse of floor space. The difference by following Lean methods is like night and day.”

“For Lean to be successful, management and the leadership have to set the tone and communicate effectively.”

“It’s important to listen and respond to employees. You have to let them know they’re on the forefront of change, and that you value their input and commitment.”

“Using Lean methodologies makes us a stronger company. It’s important to our investors and shareholders. In fact, when I make investor presentations, I talk about the advantages we’re gaining from Lean.”
