Sustainable manufacturing

Lean Manufacturing is based on finding efficiencies by eliminating unessential steps without sacrificing productivity. The Lean Process seeks to reduce overall costs, reduce time, improve quality and eliminate waste. 3C is fully committed to this system of manufacturing because of the value it brings to our clients.

Sustainability is about efficiencies. What better time than now to analyze current practices to understand how we may innovate and create new, more efficient design solutions and better products, with less environmental impact!

At 3C we are changing the way we design, manufacture, and deliver our products to do our part to protect the environment. Company-wide, we practice the 3Rs-Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle to minimize our impact on the planet.

Map the value stream

Careful analysis of the production process, ensuring each step adds value to the customer.
