The activity was championed by Toyota Material Handling Group (TMHG) to ensure the four direct influencers of efficient manufacturing are optimized — man, material, machine and methods. After implementation, Raymond showed significant improvement in its paint process quality.

“Raymond team members successfully embraced the new tools, and their collaboration was an integral part of the process,” says Michael Field, president and CEO of The Raymond Corporation. “This is a significant accomplishment for our team. We are honoured to receive this prestigious award.”

Raymond was 1 of 5 companies honoured at the global manufacturing and quality ceremony held Oct. 27, 2015, at Toyota Industry Corporations Global Manufacturing Convention in Japan.
