Cutting-Edge Equipment and Software Solutions

Leech Industries has made multiple investments in equipment and software to ensure we are best aligned to meet our clients’ needs. Our partnership with Paperless Parts enables us to efficiently and precisely obtain quotes for our clients and proactively address potential risks before the design progresses to the engineering and shop floor. Additionally, our NetSuite ERP system has allowed us to gain a real-time understanding of our processes and improve overall efficiency. These investments in state-of-the-art manufacturing software have improved our capacity and visibility, so we can continue to deliver parts on time, on cost and on quality.

Our investments and capabilities can be fully reviewed in our comprehensive list of equipment.

How Lean Manufacturing Has Impacted Our Facilities

To improve productivity and reduce waste, Leech Industries has undergone some unique changes to incorporate Lean Manufacturing practices into our facilities and operations. To remain as Lean as possible, we’ve done some restructuring around the shop:

  • We repositioned our tool and CNC departments. We decided to move our tool department to sit right next to our CNC department. It used to take four minutes to walk in each direction, and because many of our parts go through multiple operations, this time added up. Relocating our tool department has helped us cut down on cycle time significantly, further reducing lead times for our customers.
  • We consolidated and centralized our inspection processes. Moving all of our inspection equipment and operations into one space has improved the efficiency of our quality control department.
  • We moved our shipping department into one building. Previously, we had shipping operations in both of the buildings that make up our facilities. By consolidating into one space, we’re better equipped to ship parts out on time.

The investment in Lean manufacturing practices at Leech Industries has allowed us to reduce our turn times by 30% over the two-year period. We have been able to pass off time savings to our customers, resulting in lower (and more accurate) lead times, as well as the ability to offer expedited options for OEMs in need of fast turnaround.

In addition to time savings, strategically moving and consolidating operations around our shop to adhere to Lean principles has resulted in:

  • Greater quality
  • Enhanced accuracy
  • Reduced waste
  • Pricing flexibility
High-End Office Spaces

Working at Leech Industries comes with its fair share of benefits. One of the main perks is our newly renovated, polished office spaces. We took on this renovation project to assist in our recruitment efforts and to ensure our team members have working spaces that allow them to be their most productive. Not only is the space attractive and welcoming, its openness encourages communication and collaboration among teams.
