The story behind the best automotive plant in the world
Ray Tanguay, former head of Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC) will tell the story behind the best automotive plant in the world. Lean or TPS is not an activity, it is a system with a culture of continuous improvement. To deploy TPS in 51 Toyota sites in 28 countries meant that the culture that supports TPS had to be stronger than its leaders or the culture within the country. In order for TMMC to move forward, it had to go ‘back to basics’. TMMC was determined to be the best by having the best team members in the world. That is how it was selected to be the only plant outside of Japan to produce Lexus, to grow to be the biggest Toyota operation outside Japan and become the most awarded plant in the World! The automotive industry cannot succeed without a strong supply chain, and that is why the Woodbridge Transformation Story is so relevant. Chairman Bob Magee will explain how the Lean system and culture became the new way of doing business at the Woodbridge Group, its challenges and outstanding results.
