This month Empire Parking Lot Services performed 5S and Lean warehouse striping, labeling, sign hanging, stenciling, and other services for some pretty impressive companies. These businesses included Coca Cola, Federal Express, Costco, Edison, as well as several major 3PL (third party logistics) companies. In most cases we are implementing 5s or lean strategies for them via line painting sign hanging etc. When it comes to these types of services we are the number one provider of them in the Western United States. The reasons for this are simple. We know what we are doing, we can make great suggestions based on our decades of experience, and we only use the best people and products to get these projects done. Lastly, we can work within the timelines constraints our customers have. Check out some of the photos and information below about this month's projects.
5S is the name of a workplace organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words all starting with the letter S. The list describes how to organize a work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. Lean on the other hand is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. In a nutshell these methods are meant to create a highly organized work environment and reduce waste while making abnormalities stand out quickly. With our warehouse services we can quickly help you build efficiency and order that will allow for almost anyone entering into your warehouse to immediately know thing like what goes where, and where to walk, etc. 5S & Lean is more commonly thrown together these days as they make good partners.
At Empire Parking Lot Services we have been implementing these 5s / Lean systems before they were even reffered to them as that. We have decades of experiance doing this, and can offer some advice along the way. Wether you are implementing a single location safety measure or rolling out a national campaign for 5S & Lean systems, Empire can help with the installations of all of these services. Call Empire today and discuss your project with one of our estimators. We would love be a part of your team.
