LEAN MANUFACTURING

Strasser Woodenworks makes your bathroom furniture when you order it. We do not have inventory gathering dust. We are dedicated to Lean Manufacturing because it allows us to be competitive in a global market while manufacturing in the United States.

In 1999, the Washington Manufacturing Association (WMA) identified Strasser Woodenworks as a local company they would like to support during a time when many companies were moving manufacturing offshore. WMA approached Strasser offering pro-bono consulting services. Together WMA and Strasser reviewed the production operation. WMA suggested bringing in GEMBA Research to introduce Lean Manufacturing techniques to Strasser’s operation. Thus began a positive collaboration. GEMBA introduced lean manufacturing techniques and "just in time" practices in purchasing and production, thus eliminating inventory.

To further the company’s commitment to lean manufacturing, the company president went to Japan. He visited 14 companies that use lean throughout their entire companies. A highlight was going to Toyota City and observing lean at the Toyota car plant. Strasser’s president observed the impressive efficiencies lean produced.

In the next two years, Strassers’ production, purchasing and sales managers accompanied GEMBA Research consultants to Japan to learn lean techniques first hand. Strasser continues to work with GEMBA to refresh and improve its ‘lean’ techniques which has allowed Strasser to compete in the global economy.
