Manufacturing Process


The plants follow lean manufacturing systems and cellular manufacturing. The layout has been designed through value stream mapping and with an aim to achieve the best floor space utilization. The company has worked extensively with the Kaizen Institute since 2001 to maximize production efficiency and has deployed tools such as Single Minute exchange of Dies (SMED), Just in Time (JIT), Error Proofing (Poka Yoke) and Statistical Controls over a number of years.

In order to generate maximum value and optimize costs, the plant carries out a variety of operations in house.
