Lean Manufacturing

Because we use the best ideas in manufacturing, our quality yields are about as high as you can get. For example, quality yields for the improved physical fitness uniform for U.S. Army personnel reached 99.9%.

Our approach to manufacturing is inspired by the Toyota bump-back system. The method is team-based and empowers employees to take ownership of the entire process. Operators are trained on every step of the product’s manufacturing lifecycle. Working as a group, they flow as needed between stations and work together to improve the process, meet production goals, and maintain exceptionally high quality yields. The result is happier employees doing more, better.

Our yields have been so impressive, IOB Greensboro has been a case study for the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS), who asked our President, David LoPresti, to share the secrets of our outstanding performance.
