Crestview, Florida: Adam Hallet, Founder and CEO of Hallet Enteprise, announced that Hallet Enterprise helped client American Elite Molding boost productivity by 50%. American Elite Molding manufactures nylon cable ties and accessories at its plant in Crestview, Florida. The plant runs 24/7/365 and currently produces more than 1.5 billion cable ties annually; the company plans to double within five years. Management wanted to increase productivity, reduce errors, empower employees to solve problems quickly, and improve the shipping process, so they asked Hallet, a business transformation expert, to help.
The Hallet Enterprise team took a multi-step approach, first measuring the problem and understanding the cause. They examined American Elite Molding’s various production, assembly, quality assurance, and shipping processes to determine where issues existed; interviewed management and staff; observed these processes in action; and identified areas that could be improved.
“We recommended a variety of training programs to equip management and employees with the tools necessary to be more efficient and to be able to solve problems independently and effectively,” explained Hallet Enterprise Founder and CEO Adam Hallet. “Then we utilized the Kaizen method in the assembly and quality assurance areas. Kaizen is a method that re-engineers processes in a very short time. In the assembly process, we introduced Standard Work and Metrics which improved productivity by 50%. In the quality assurance process, we taught employees how to detect defects at the beginning of process, adjusted roles and responsibilities, and put measures in place to identify corrective action areas. To improve shipping accuracy and lead time, we developed a strategic approach to systematically improve the end to end process. Finally, we instituted key measures to ensure that customer orders are processed in a timely manner, allowing for long-term sustainability of the improvements. Together, these measures resulted in a 50% increase in productivity in American Elite Molding’s assembly process.”
