Bunting (Newton, KS) hired Robert Clausing as their new lean manufacturing coordinator. He is responsible for focusing on utilizing a lean manufacturing mindset in order to reduce and eliminate waste. “Waste is anything that adds to the process without adding value to the product,” said Clausing. “It can be as obvious as transportation expenses and as subtle as spending too much time searching for a misplaced item. Everyone can see waste and even conceive ways to reduce or eliminate it.”
Clausing joins the company from TECT Power, Inc., where he served as the general operations manager. He has also worked for Carlson Products LLC as a supply chain manager and The Coleman Company, Inc. as a global quality manager. “I look forward to guiding teams that can transform ideas and suggestions to project Bunting as a world-class organization,” he said. “I am eager to unleash a lean mindset that leads all our facilities towards operations excellence.”
