SME Manufacturing

From the start, TXM has focused on small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). We have worked with hundreds of small-and medium-sized manufacturing, distribution, and service businesses, amassing an outstanding track record of transforming operational performance and unlocking the growth potential of SMEs.

We show small-and-medium-sized manufacturing clients how to adapt lean tools and methods to suit their unique processes, culture, needs, and the market in which they are operating. We understand your world and know from our vast experience that Lean Manufacturing is the most effective framework in which to develop a management system for your small or medium-sized business.

Our Approach

The TXM process starts with a clear understanding of your business objectives. We then design a tailored program and action plan to take your business where it needs to go. Ongoing support is provided with the skills and coaching at every stage ensuring that each of your objectives is achieved.

We have delivered sustainable bottom-line improvements across almost every aspect of business, from plant layout, to supply chain design, office and administrative processes, sales processes and engineering. We also help our clients address organisational structure and develop the right people to successfully lead the change.

Our approach to Lean implementation is based on the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” cycle. We work with you to tailor a solution, get hands-on with you as you pilot the solution, then give you time to trial and reflect on the new processes before returning to your site to ‘check’ the results and ‘act’ to lock in the change

Our practical, results-orientated approach recognises the busy world of SMEs. Therefore rather than lock up your people learning theory in endless training sessions, we focus on the concepts, principles, tools, and techniques that will efficiently and effectively facilitate change. Our innovative adaptation of Lean methodologies, coupled with our extensive experience, TXM can distill the required learnings into concepts that your team can understand and engage with. Our coaching is highly flexible, usually delivered where people work and involving short sessions with individuals and small groups rather than big sessions in meeting rooms. We find that this style of employee engagement maximises the retention rate for new ideas.
