Manufacturing Excellence Tour of Whiting Facility a Success
In October, Whiting was proud to be a participant in the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) 2012Conference Tour program. Over 50 conference participants visited the Whiting plant, located in Monee, Illinois, and enjoyed learning about the lean manufacturing principles employed within the plant. With Whiting employees acting as plant tour guides, and plant personnel located at set stations within the plant, the tour was both informative and entertaining. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Jeff Kahn, President of Whiting, was presented with a special award from the AME, in recognition of a job well done and excellence in manufacturing. We are very proud of this award and look forward to being a plant tour host for AME again in the future.
