Lyreco shares its continuous improvement journey at the Lean Café

The EU-Japan Centre Lean Café brings together lean practitioners for regular Zoom discussions of lean thinking and lean strategy. Each session focuses on the experience and learnings of a different company and includes detailed insights into the strategies and tools it uses, explanations and group discussion moderated by Prof. Richard Keegan (Adjunct Professor of Lean Operational Excellence, Trinity Business School).
On 27 May, during Lean Café #07, Lyreco – the European leading distributor of workplace products and services – shared the continuous improvement journey of its UK national distribution centre and regional distribution centre.
Nick Dacey (Supply Chain Director), Richard Taylor (Head of Operations), Peter Gojka (Building Service Manager) and Ade Oyedeji (Continuous Improvement Manager) took questions and outlined Lyreco’s lean journey. They explained how it uses ‘Continuous Improvement’, ‘Performance Dialogue’, ‘Gemba Walks & Productivity Gembas’, ‘5S’ and – this year – started implementing ‘OEE’ (Overall Equipment Efficiency) / ‘TPM’ (Total Preventive Maintenance).
