Groth's Lean Enterprise Vision provides the lowest cost, shortest lead-time products and services by highly motivated, knowledgeable and empowered employees in a safe and community-friendly environment. Our strategy for achieving this vision requires the systematic implementation of Lean principles. Lean Manufacturing is a valuable component of the Groth Corporation and that of our parent company, Continental Disc Corporation.
Lean is a philosophy which, when put into practice, shortens the time between the point of customer order and delivery of the product/service by identifying and reducing waste elements. The wasteful activities that do not add value for the customer are eliminated.
Traditional manufacturing and Lean Manufacturing are remarkably different both in terms of strategies employed and results obtained. The Groth Corporation is committed to transforming its operations and workplace culture to conform to a Lean Enterprise.
