Saftronics Host Fully Funded Productivity Workshops For SME Manufacturers

On the 11th September, the Manufacturing Growth Programme (MGP) is running its first Manufacturing Productivity workshop in the Leeds City Region on how to improve Lean processes.

Delivered in partnership with the Leeds City Region Growth Hub and hosted by MGP client, Saftronics Limited, the aim of the workshop is to provide all delegates with a good understanding of Lean Principles and how waste reduction will improve business performance and the customer experience.

At the end of the workshop, delegates will be able to explain the 5 Lean principles and the benefits of applying these to the business, understand the 7 production wastes and how to reduce them, run value added activities and waste management and be able to explain and demonstrate the massive benefits gained by the implementation of Lean.

This workshop offers practical group exercises which are informative and fully participative and will help delegates identify challenges and solutions to take back into day-to-day working.

At the end of this workshop, hosts Saftronics Limited will be providing a factory tour to showcase their products and their processes.

This workshop is part of the additional £11.8m funding MGP received to continuing delivering business support to SME manufacturing businesses in April 2019.
