CST implements lean production efforts on a continuous basis. We use 5S principles as the corner stone of our lean manufacturing efforts. Our efforts to stream line production include the elimination of semi-finished products and excessive handling. We utilize a combination of flexible production lines and dedicated U-shaped lines customized to support specific products. Our Lean Production goals can only be achieved if we also employ TPM (Total Productive Maintenance).

Stable employment and continuous training at all levels is key to successful lean implementation. Our turnover is very low in comparison to other factories.

CST will continue to climb the continuous improvement mountain step by step.
