VMS is proud to be a lean manufacturing company. We feel that our lean culture enhances our ability to supply our customers in the most effective way. By eliminating waste and continually improving (two main components to Lean) our employees have more time to focus on your needs and products.
Lean is a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste through continuous improvement by flowing the product or services supplied by the company at the pull of the customer in the pursuit of perfection. This philosophy is designed to bring about rapid, planned, controlled and measured step-change improvements to the performance of an organization through an overhaul of the value stream.
