H&T Batteries manufactures billions of battery components every year and is committed to lean manufacturing principles and reducing waste in the production of our components.
As part of the Heitkamp and Thumann Group, H&T Batteries has adopted the group lean management program called H&T Excellence which aims to create a company culture of continuous improvement and reduction in waste.
The programme has been implemented within H&T Batteries for many years where kaizen events and training programmes identifying 10 potentials waste areas and lean principles are rolled out to employees every year.
The overall goal is to improve operational effectiveness by eliminating waste, being right first time and reducing costs. The kaizen events are designed to provide a consistent approach to implement operational excellence throughout the H&T Group and all H&T employees undergo an initial training session, which provides them with the essential tools to recognise potential waste in their work.
H&T Batteries recognises the importance to instil the fundamental factors and importance of lean manufacturing into our company culture which is why H&T Battery employees undertake training through a number of different tasks, concepts and simulations with refresher programmes being rolled out annually.
H&T Excellence is at the heart of H&T Battery components strategy for continuous improvement and we will continue to keep you updated on our H&T Excellence program activities throughout the year.
