CI & LEAN INITIATIVES

Primus Aerospace’s success over the past decade has been attributable to our ongoing focus and effort to improve and reinvest in our operational performance.  The organization specifically focuses on Continuous Improvement and Lean Manufacturing activities in the disciplines of machine technology, machine productivity, process flow/linkage, and adaptability in order to meet a broad range of customer demands.

Industry expectations have changed significantly over recent years, forcing businesses to operate differently than they had previously.  Primus recognizes the solution to achieving success in today’s environment is to create a responsive, adaptable organization that meets the industry’s constantly fluctuating demands and increased complexities. 

Primus has prioritized the following initiatives to help achieve and strengthen its results:

  1. Equipment model will continue to incorporate horizontal machining, 5-axis machining, 7-axis machining, high-speed machining and automated loading/unloading
  2. Production set-up and change-over processes will become standardized to maximize machine utilization
  3. Facility space will be expanded to improve material flow, process flow/linkage and overall organization
  4. Scheduling, capacity analysis and process flow/linkage will be updated to increase production output 

Primus Aerospace continuously reorganizes its operational structure in order to meet these initiatives and accommodate growth.  The company recently executed a long-term building and land lease with options extending through 2027.  Capital improvements will continue to be performed on the facility over the next 3 years to update functionality and image while assisting in achieving the overall goals of the organization.

Primus believes the future aerospace, defense and space industry supply chains will require a sustained and extraordinary commitment compared to that of past decades.  As a result, this will force many suppliers to either exit these market segments or renew/increase their investment to remain competitive.  Primus continues to move forward in collaboration and partnership with its customers to identify areas of mutual opportunity to make such future commitments.
