How did they do it?
According to Nic Tarzwell, Chief Technical Officer at Eagle Alloy:
One of our integral company values at Eagle Alloy, and throughout the Eagle Group, is to foster continuous improvement. Through hard work, dedication and creativity, our associates at ALL levels contributed to these improved metrics with our diverse product mix across 15 industries. It is with the support of our customers and suppliers we continue to raise the bar year over year for delivering the highest grade quality product at the highest value.
Gains like this didn't result from a single project or initiative, but from dozens of measures put into practice throughout the production process. From operators to company executives, everyone at the Eagle Group plays a role in improving efficiency and quality.
We take quality and continuous improvement very seriously, and we don't plan on stopping any time soon.
