Machined parts manufacturer Allis Roller (Franklin, WI) is embarking on the World Class Manufacturing (WCM) integrative system for business and operational optimization. WCM is one of the most exclusive and highly respected programs for lean manufacturing in the world. With multinational customers such as John Deere and CNH, adopting WCM strategies is part of Allis Roller’s larger goal of striving for continuous improvement and a leaner, more efficient manufacturing model.
Recent hire John Gil brings extensive experience in manufacturing quality control and operational improvement. He is spearheading the WCM push at Allis Roller. Gil currently has a Green Belt certification in Lean Six Sigma, and is working towards his Black Belt certification.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to make our operation smarter, faster, and more cost-effective over time,” Gil said. “World Class Manufacturing is a unique and highly selective program. We know it will help us improve on the already solid foundation we’ve built here at Allis Roller.”
The WCM strategy for continuous improvement incorporates several pillars, each implicating every component of an operation from workplace safety and employee morale, to waste reduction and systems optimization. Allis Roller will specifically work toward the pillars of preventative maintenance/workplace organization, safety, cost-deployment, and continuous improvement over the next several years.
