Lean Practices, rooted from the Toyota Production System, are a set of principles and techniques designed to eliminate waste, optimise efficiency, and promote a culture of continuous improvement. At Pennine, we have integrated these practices into our daily operations, streamlining processes, and enhancing the value we deliver to our customers and partners.
We are not just a medical manufacturer; we are on a continuous journey towards excellence for the benefit our customers, suppliers, colleagues and the planet. Therefore, our commitment to delivering high quality medical devices is intertwined with our adoption of Lean Practices.
The Medical manufacturing industry demands precision, reliability, and uncompromising quality. Embracing Lean Practices enables us to meet these rigorous standards while achieving operational excellence. By starting to minimise waste and reduce lead times, we are continuing to champion UK manufacturing.
