HID Global Facility Awarded ‘Nobel Prize of Manufacturing’

IRVINE, Calif.

HID Global Corp. announces that its North Haven, Conn., manufacturing facility garnered the esteemed Connecticut Silver Shingo Prize.

The Shingo Prize is awarded to companies that have demonstrated achievements in manufacturing processes, quality enhancements, productivity improvement and customer satisfaction. The prize focuses on lean manufacturing techniques and promotes world- class business performance through continuous improvements in core manufacturing and business processes.

Building on the foundation established by 2005’s commendation for World Class Leadership and Culture, HID Global’s North Haven facility achieved tremendous results for its 2006 Lean implementation, the company says.

Established in 1988, the Shingo Prize is named for Shigeo Shingo, a Japanese expert on improving manufacturing processes. It has been called the “Nobel Prize of manufacturing” by Business Week magazine.

Shingo evaluators noted the North Haven facility’s significant reduction in lead times, improvement in on-time delivery, reduced scrap and considerable increases in shipments with an incremental increase in labor as contributors to the award-winning performance.

“Customers receiving products from this facility are getting products from a facility that is on its way to ‘world-class,'” says Brian Montanari, director of Global Manufacturing, HID Global. “We are on the path to our true goal of 100-percent customer satisfaction and in meeting our mission of providing our customers with the highest quality product, on time, every time through our pursuit of world-class practices.”
