At GKN we recognise that what we do well today, we can do even better tomorrow. This culture of continuous improvement is at the heart of everything we do. By constantly looking to improve our people, processes and products, we ensure we deliver maximum value to our customers.
All our sites have a continuous improvement plan, aligned to business objectives, which engages employees to consistently focus on positive development.
We apply a Lean Enterprise model in our business and production processes worldwide. This approach organises our businesses into Value Streams, the end-to-end process of delivering a product or service to our customer. The core aim of our improvement process is to minimise the non-value adding and waste activities across an entire value stream.
By bringing together many continuous improvement tools and techniques we are able to change our way of doing things to more efficiently serve the needs of our customers. We have engaged every employee, in every location across GKN, building a culture
which constantly questions the norm and identifies opportunities to further excel.
