Eissmann plant honoured with “Factory of the Year” title

Successful as a result of its pragmatic and consistent approach to hunting down sources of waste, car industry supplier Eissmann’s Hungarian site in Nyíregyháza has been awarded the title of “Factory of the Year” in the category of “Global Excellence”.

The good rating is the result of fully embracing a kaizen culture: no day should go by without improvements and without a pragmatic and consistent “waste hunt”. Here Eissmann is focusing on low-cost solutions (smart automation), which can be tried out and implemented by the workers themselves under the direction of their team leader.

Factory of the Year/Global Excellence in Operations (GEO) is the most tradition-steeped and most challenging benchmark competition for the manufacturing industry in Germany and other European countries. The prize is awarded by the trade newspaper Produktion and the management consulting firm A.T. Kearney. The winners show how exemplary production can become a success factor in global competition.
