Awarded annually, RPM’s MS-168 Growth Award recognizes a manufacturing facility that has deployed the tools of the MS-168 manufacturing system in order to expand capacity and boost commercial sales. This year’s winner is the Construction Products Group’s (CPG) facility in Wigan, UK.
The team at CPG’s Wigan facility clearly demonstrated its ability to improve operations while growing its business. As part of its MS-168 process, the facility formed a focused improvement team (FIT) in order to address long manufacturing lead times. As a result, the company yielded a significant reduction in its cycle time and created a process with rapid, predictable output—ultimately allowing its sales force to sell into this newfound capacity.
Congrats to CPG’s Wigan facility for this incredible achievement!
