Our Client designs and manufactures a diverse line of integrated thermoplastic piping systems (pipes, valves, fittings, auxiliary components, and tools). These manufactured products are all engineered from the ground up to handle the full range of municipal, industrial, commercial and residential applications.
This Client’s integrated piping systems are manufactured from a diverse range of materials including PVC, CPVC, ABS, PP, FR-PVDF, PEX and PE, as well as innovative plastic/metal composites. PVA conducted a total of 6 projects with this Client in their various plants across Canada.
Improving the output on each of their extruder pipe lines
Improving their overall work processes and standard operating procedures (SOP’s)
Improving the support departments (Blending, Maintenance and Setups/Changeovers) to increase their levels of internal customer service
Training and on-the-floor performance coaching of the Supervisors and Managers related to their roles and responsibilities focusing on more proactive management styles
Implementing uniform and consistent Management Operating Systems (MOS) and Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) across all plants
The greatest benefit for IPEX was the implementation of a solid Management Operating System in all 6 Plants. Our Plant staff – from Shift Supervisor to Plant Manager – became stronger Managers, and because of that, started to deliver better results. It is by far the best training exercise that we ever gave our Supervisors. This is achieved because, contrary to a lot of other types of training, it is not just a 2 or 3 day theoretical program, but a 26 week program that covers both the theory and practice of solid management techniques. I would strongly recommend PVA to any organization.
