Breakthrough Financial and Operational Performance with Double Digit Growth Year Over Year.
VisTech grew from a start-up to a full-blown manufacturer of automotive products. During financial reviews, it became clear that the company was bogged down by inefficiencies in labor and production. They had grown so fast, the emphasis had been on launching new products rather than building robust systems and process controls. Constant firefighting was affecting VisTech’s bottom line, as well as their product cost, quality, and delivery.
Driving Change In Real-World Manufacturing Process
“The team saw that this was how we would be competitive in the market, and we were seeing gains in our bottom line. Every single site leader realized the importance of being able to improve with such a quick turnaround. They really took ownership.”
– Alex Ramirez, VisTech Manufacturing
Big Results For A Growing Company
Implementing better work standards has cut down on labor dramatically, allowing VisTech to be more competitive, make more sales, and win more jobs.
In raw material production, standard procedures shortened a 4-hour cleanup process to only 2 hours, representing a 50% improvement in scheduled downtime. In other production areas, VisTech has realized a 20-30% improvement in labor efficiency. But the biggest win for VisTech was speed – many of the standards that led to those gains were implemented within a week’s time.
18 months into their partnership, improvement is still going strong as Leading North Advisors and Alex Ramirez continue to seek big wins for VisTech and its staff.
