Bunting, a Newton, Kansas-based manufacturer of magnetic technology, has hired Robert Clausing as its new lean manufacturing coordinator. He will focus on using a lean manufacturing mindset to reduce and eliminate waste.
“Waste is anything that adds to the process without adding value to the product,” Clausing says. “It can be as obvious as transportation expenses and as subtle as spending too much time searching for a misplaced item. Everyone can see waste, and even conceive ways to reduce or eliminate it.”
He joins the Bunting team from TECT Power Inc., where he served as general operations manager. Clausing also has worked for Carlson Products LLC as a supply chain manager and The Coleman Co. Inc as a global quality manager.
“I look forward to guiding teams that can transform ideas and suggestions to project Bunting as a world-class organization,” he says. “I am eager to unleash a lean mindset that leads all Bunting facilities towards operations excellence.”
