Selected Lean Manufacturing Case Studies in the UK
TXM Lean Solutions has collaborated with many manufacturers and service providers in the UK, and the results and testimonials speak for themselves. Here, we look at some Lean Transformation case studies and success stories in the UK.
1. Special Door Solutions (SDS) Protection –Streamlined Operations
SDS is a well established and premier permanent wall surface and door set protection dealer in the UK, providing door sets for retailers, manufacturers and social amenities like schools and hospitals across the UK for more than 40 years. The company was enjoying rapid growth, which presented complexities in capacity limits –it became difficult to organise and evaluate their operations. There was a need for consolidation. Upon bringing TXM onboard, SDS enjoys better flow and synergy across different work cells through a one piece-flow production system.
2. Holleys Fine Foods –Reduced Order/Demand Lead Times
Covid-19 affected many businesses, and Holleys Fine Foods wasn’t spared. Due to an unprecedented surge in demand for their products, the company found it difficult to satisfy its customers. But through TXM’s Lean Transformation, Holleys Fine Foods was able to boost its productivity and mitigate the excess demand.
3. Ivyline –Streamlined Business Processes
Ivyline were in jeopardy with their sales due to several factors, including exchange rates, supply chain inefficiency, inventory cost, inflation, storage cost, and economic factors. TXM helped develop Safety Stock and cost-effective order points to reduce storage and carriage, boosting their sales thus profits.
4. Hazchem Safety –Increased Sales
Located in Brackley, Hazchem Safety is the UK’s top supplier of safety clothing and equipment for transporting and handling hazardous products. Experiencing rapid growth, Hazchem Safety could not maintain ample warehouse space for their fast-growing inventory and had unattractive On Time In Full (OTIF) delivery. TXM helped the company achieve higher sales, lower inventory, and a better OTIF.
