精益生产 & 供应链 Training Helps PRIER Thrive with Sustained Growth.

2021年的10月28日

关于窥探者. 位于Grandview, 密苏里州, PRIER manufactures residential outdoor faucets, 商业和地面消火栓, 管道黄铜, drainage products and specialty valves. 自1881年成立以来, PRIER has earned a reputation for providing top-tier products with outstanding customer service and industry-leading turnaround times. The company has continued to grow its operations in the Kansas City area with three facilities in its production campus. PRIER prides itself on being a mass-custom shop that produces a wide array of products for wholesalers and retailers yet maintains the ability to meet customized needs – it can even make a custom single unit if that’s what a customer requires. Among the newest innovations are sanitary roof and bury hydrants with specialized features to maximize performance in harsh rooftop and underground environments.

所面临的挑战. In 2007, PRIER acquired the plumbing valve division from a major company and immediately had to double its production capacity as quickly as possible. 从那时起, the company has been growing and expanding rapidly, requiring it to continuously improve the efficiency of its operations to keep up with demand while maximizing product quality and company profitability. With 供应链 issues now more important than ever, PRIER also needed to strengthen its supplier relationships and manage risk more efficiently to ensure the smooth flow of materials required for production. It strives to process orders and ship it out the door within eight working hours.

议员中心的角色. Ever since PRIER began experiencing tremendous growth about 15 years ago, it has consistently turned to 密苏里州的企业 for professional, expert guidance to help them overcome challenges in its ongoing journey to manufacturing excellence. First projects included plant layout design and value stream mapping which helped PRIER dramatically reduce material travel throughout its production facilities. The next steps included facilitating multiple 精益生产 initiatives at the company, including standard work instructions and standard operating procedures, 精益模拟训练, 5 s和更多. 密苏里州的企业’s expert 项目经理 have also provided product development expertise, assisting PRIER with critical product redesigns and new product innovations. Multiple individuals at PRIER have also enhanced their supply chain management skills through 密苏里州的企业’s APICS training programs as they worked their way to achieving CPIM certifications.

“PRIER has turned to 密苏里州的企业 repeatedly over the years because they’re experts at helping us successfully implement proven manufacturing best practices to maximize our production efficiencies, enhance quality and grow profitably. They’ve helped us be innovative in providing new product solutions for customers, and they’ve provided excellent training to strengthen our 供应链 management skills. Their 项目经理 have the “been there done that” experience we need to tackle big challenges and implement positive changes quickly and efficiently.Jeff Madden,市场部
