ALC were honoured to have been awarded the Company of the Year 2020 for its dedication to supporting businesses in adopting Lean principles, to identify and eliminate waste from their processes.

For example, over the past 12+ months, ALC have been working with a manufacturer of analytical sieves where particle size is critical to their customers.

The objectives were to:

  • reduce lead time and inventory levels
  • free up space to allow work to flow
  • introduce daily lean checks, controls and visual management
  • coach shop floor operatives and management to be self sustaining in Lean

The results include reducing finished goods inventory by 28% whilst raising OTIF performance, reducing inventory level by £188K, increasing stock turn by 50% and reducing lead time by 38%.

More than that, the Lean team are motivated and actively looking for opportunities to improve further.

Ultimately, we see ourselves as trusted advisors, helping Companies run slick and efficient processes and serve their customer base more effectively.

ALC is proud to be an active supporter of the Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce.
