Over the years I have come across various companies who apply lean manufacturing principles.

This includes Magal Group including Magal Engineering Limited who are leading manufacturers of parts for the Automotive sector and have used lean manufacturing techniques for many years. Their website is at www.magal.co.uk

It is interesting to see that EEF are establishing a Lean Academy for mid-sized companies and SMEs so that they can get a head start on lean techniques and making their business competitive on the world stage of the Automotive and Manufacturing sector.
