Manufacturing strategy and operations optimization at Energi
Energi was aiming to double its production capacity over the upcoming three years. They therefore decided to collaborate with Progima to rethink their current manufacturing strategy in order to meet their expected growth.
Increase in the production capacity on the mechanical assembly line
Productivity improvement on the mechanical assembly line
Implementation of 2 balanced assembly lines
Analysis of the current manufacturing methods and implementation of the assembly lines. Workload definition (time study, line balancing). Rethinking the manpower needs and work content. Space optimization and new detailed layout design. Implementation and monitoring over a 3-month period.
ENERGI Fenestration Solutions is among the finest extruders of PVC for the North American window and door industry. We seek to differentiate from other extrusion suppliers through a value-added strategy that includes product mix (custom and platform window profiles, patio doors, trim systems and color solutions), innovation, quality and service.
“Major changes were needed in our work organization and the layout of the facility. Progima’s team led the project with a down-to-earth attitude, focusing on results and keeping a tight timeline.”
