ARPM to lead virtual tour of Lake Erie Rubber

Indianapolis, IN – The latest ARPM Virtual Plant Tour will take place Thursday, June 10, at 1:00 p.m. EDT to tour Lake Erie Rubber.

Lake Erie Rubber is a custom rubber molding and manufacturing company with a history that spans six decades. Lake Erie uses LEAN guiding principles to drive continuous improvement in safety, quality, delivery and cost for its customers. The Lake Erie team is a small group of employees who all play a vital role in the day-to-day operations, and is dedicated to speed, quality and technical solutions to support customers.

Lake Erie embarked on its LEAN journey in 2018. The journey began with a focus on transactional LEAN to streamline processes, including the quality management system, customer service, quoting, and manufacturing cost data analysis. In 2020, the shift moved to more traditional LEAN manufacturing improvements with a focus on 5S, the foundation of a LEAN facility.

President and owner, Jon Meighan, will walk attendees through his LEAN journey and give a virtual tour of the facility.
