King Systems

Noblesville, Indiana


King Systems is a global distributor and internationally recognized designer and manufacturer of quality anesthesia and critical care products located in Noblesville, Indiana. King markets nearly 3,500 different circuit configurations, facemasks, and airway management devices with sales exceeding $60 million annually.

Solution:

Working with TAP in order to better facilitate employee training, more than 100 King Systems employees attended Lean and Six Sigma training – programs focused on workplace organization, advanced manufacturing principles, and strategic approaches to problem solving.

Results:

As a result of the TAP/MEP training programs, King Systems met and more than doubled the fiscal year cost savings target.

The MEP training program has helped accelerate King's Continuous Improvement program. A sense of empowerment carried all the way to the shop floor, as the excitement level after training was high. It will be imperative that we continue to keep motivated and ensure the new practices are embedded in our culture.
