Lean is far more than a management philosophy…it is a way of life at Milbank. Our lean enterprise is the foundation of our commitment and our growth. Continuous improvement is our daily personal responsibility. It is through our long-term lean journey—and continuous improvement—that we will reach our goals.
As we anticipate continued increases in material and labor costs, the lean philosophy is integral to our growth and success as well as that of our customers. Our 19,000 SKUs, the result of custom electric metering and enclosure solutions for thousands of utilities across the globe, were not the only reasons to go lean. The most imperative reason is to ensure that Milbank continues to deliver our customers the highest quality products at extremely competitive costs, while continuing to be a true American manufacturer.
