Xuron goes Lean (as in Manufacturing)

Kaizen Coin Game

In 2010 when a representative from the Maine Manufacturing Extension Partnership contacted us about getting involved with Kaizen 5S  training programs we were (to put it mildly) resistant.   Aren’t we already working efficiently?  Don’t we know everything about how to best manufacture our own products?  Heck, we’ve been doing this for over 25 years, what can outsiders teach us?  

Wow, how wrong we were!  Our first Kaizen event focused on the shipping/receiving area, next we moved to the sales office to improve the flow of paperwork (and reduce paperwork) and then on to the manufacturing area where machine set-up time was reviewed, and improved.  Currently we are finishing a product specific project aimed at reducing manufacturing lead time. 

What does this mean to you, our customers?  This is a system of continuous improvement.  It means Xuron is dedicated to our customers, our products and our employees.  We are committed to manufacturing quality, innovative products, on-time deliveries and excellent customer service.

Dont’ be afraid to let us know how we’re doing!

Xuron Corp — 25 Years in Maine.

Twenty five years ago this month (November) XURON CORP. made the move from Connecticut to Maine.    The original objective was to move to a State that offered a good quality of life, a qualified work force and the opportunity to expand the business.  

Over those 25 years we put  two additions onto the original building, we added employees, new products, new customers and new technology.  We said good bye to those who retired and those who passed. We have watched each others children grow up (and have their own children) and we have been bound together by a common bond –  XURON.   We truly enjoy working here and it shows in the quality of the products and the level of service offered to each and every customer. 

As we begin our twenty sixth year, we welcome you to our new web site and Blog.   Our content will be directed toward you, the customer, so feel free to let us know what you want to see, hear, learn. 

Until next time….
