Lean Manufacturing Case Study
Toyota, pioneers of TPS / Lean Manufacturing, adopt FlowTube for the European Global Production Training Centre, E-GPC

Toyota chose FlowTube for the new European Production Training Centre in Derbyshire because the system's versatility makes it ideal for their lean manufacturing continuous improvement applications. Its plastic coated steel tubes, modular connecting joints, roller tracks and accessories allow units to be reconfigured to meet changing training and production needs. For the initial fit-out, Toyota required 30 assembly designs including handgrip and dexterity test units, trolleys, flow racks and signboards.
