Accelerating operational excellence, further enhancing competitiveness
Division:IMI Hydronic Engineering
Date:24 March 2017
Lean operating principles are now firmly embedded across the Hydronic Engineering division and the commercial benefits of these activities are becoming increasingly apparent.
The division’s Olkusz plant was the first of our Group operations to achieve world-class lean status and during the year our Slovenian facility was awarded this status with a score of 88%. To further enhance competitiveness we continue to focus on delivering operational improvements and during the year, a new integrated IT system was installed, on time and to budget, at the Olkusz plant and across a large part of Hydronic Engineering’s Swiss based business. During the course of 2017, these new systems will be introduced across the entire division to further embed common ways of working and accurate data collection, all of which will make our businesses more efficient and competitive.
