L&M Precision Fabrication Completes Recent Remodel to Help Promote Lean Manufacturing Efforts
Airway Heights, Washington November 01, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) L&M Precision Fabrication, a full service precision metal manufacturer, is pleased to announce the completion of a recent remodeling effort at its Airway Heights facility. The remodel was designed to promote more efficient manufacturing and improved quality for customers in the Aerospace, Electronic, Medical and Military markets.
The major goals for the remodel included repositioning and consolidating to reduce floor space between complementary workstations and to cut down on time and space necessary to move between stations. This consolidation has allowed L&M Precision to add additional capacity to accommodate steady growth in demand from Aerospace manufacturing customers over 2012.
It is this spirit of ongoing improvement that makes adding capabilities and upgrading investments a company priority; L&M Precision reinvests in capital equipment every year in the effort to improve the overall efficiency of the CNC manufacturing facility, and is a large factor in how L&M Precision received one of the first AS9100 Rev C certifications in the region earlier this year. The AS9100 Rev C certification focuses directly on the continual improvement of fabricating processes for both sheet metal and machined parts, assuring consistent reliability and high quality in all L&M Precision's manufacturing processes.
"Aerospace welding is also an area of constant focus for improvement and increased efficiencies," says L&M Vice President Fred Brown. "We frequently invest in new welding equipment designed to provide greater capacity and more precise capabilities. We see the results from those investments in the form of more project quoting and purchase orders for Aerospace projects."
While many of the improvements directly affect L&M's Aerospace projects, the combined capabilities allow L&M to provide precision formed and machined parts to customers across many industries.
