Strategic Roadmap Brings Synergy to Growth and Operations
Corru-Seals, dba Nicholsons, are global specialists in the design and manufacture of high temperature metal seals, gaskets and ancillary components, supplying the aerospace sector for over 40 years from their U.S. site. Corru-Seals is an approved manufacturer currently supplying seals and gaskets to U. S. aerospace industry customers including Pratt & Whitney, General Electric, Honeywell, and Rolls-Royce Indianapolis.
The company has always achieved their mandatory certifications, including the last several years as the requirements have grown and expanded not only from quality assurance but also to overall business practices. Corru-Seals also complies with the new revision standard to ensure its leadership efforts are aligned with the overall company strategy and business processes.
Corru-Seals recognized to fully realize the benefits inherent in the new quality standard would require a paradigm shift in the organization. In order to truly operate at a world class level and compete with much bigger players in a global market they needed to move beyond the mentality of just getting through the most recent audit.
The attitude of “checking the box” was no longer acceptable. A laser-focused effort would be needed, employing management tools and metrics to provide clear direction for achieving the obvious results and more notably, operating under the intent of the new standard, and reaching growth and operational goals.
"The enterprise-wide lean transformation facilitated by CONNSTEP helped give us the continuous improvement head start we needed."
Implementing appropriate continuous improvement tools can help establish a Lean culture throughout an entire organization and deliver transformative results.
