Lean Manufacturing

Excellence Through Lean Thinking

“We've been in the manufacturing business a long time. I've heard all the industry horror stories and worked with my people to eliminate them from our facility. At MacKay, you'll experience a real difference. What I mean by that is we've developed material flow and manufacturing processes that eliminate problems like expensive warehousing, late delivery, and defective parts. We constantly improve every area of manufacturing, making a good process even better. That's true from our front desk all the way through to our shipping department. MacKay Manufacturing Inc. plans the manufacturing and manufactures the plan.”
—Mike MacKay

What, Where and When... Faster

Lean manufacturing is about getting the right items to the right place, at the right time, with minimal waste of time and materials. We make just what we need, when we need it. That’s the philosophy of lean, and it does great things for our work and our customers.

Sometimes the Obvious Isn't

Lean thinking influences everything we do. It’s such a smart way to do business, we sometimes wonder why everyone isn’t doing it. But until they catch up, we’re happy to be your resource for this way of manufacturing. Companies like HP, Johnson & Johnson, Rockwell, and Siemens receive the benefits of our lean manufacturing. Those folks can work with anybody they want, and they choose to work with MacKay. Come discover what they experience.
