The Harris Products Group facility in Mason, OH has been named a 2012 Finalist for IndustryWeek’s Best Plants competition.
The distinction is based on strong manufacturing performance and a comprehensive focus on continuous improvement.
Harris is a leader in the design, development and manufacture of cutting, welding, brazing and soldering equipment and consumables and gas distribution systems. The Harris Mason facility manufacturers brazing and soldering alloys, rings and return bends, with the products from Mason sold both in the US and exported to 96 countries around the world.
“The Mason team has worked hard these past few years, and this is a great validation of their efforts in team-based lean Six Sigma usage,” said Dan Marascalchi, vice-president of global operations for Harris. “It exemplifies our commitment to operational excellence, this is just one stop on the way to fulfilling a larger vision of high quality, high productivity manufacturing in the US and at our plants around the world.”
Dave Nangle, president of The Harris Products Group, said the honor highlights the operations teams’ commitment to continuous improvement across the organization and dedication to the company’s vision for operational excellence.
The finalists were announced in September, and the winners will be profiled in the January 2013 issue of IndustryWeek.
