Loewen Windows and Doors

LEAN Redesign
A process for large scale manufacturing transformation

In 2005 Loewen embarked on a large scale LEAN redesign of its door and window fabrication and assembly operations located in Steinbach, Manitoba. Using an approach developed in the UK and successfully applied by other leading manufacturers in Manitoba, Loewen completely redesigned the entire 600,000 sq ft facility into LEAN business units. On this tour you will see the results of this LEAN redesign and hear about the tools used to achieve a cultural shift and an increase in productivity of over 30%.
