Miura Canada has been in operation for 28 years and for the last 8 years Miura Canada has been implementing 5S and Lean strategies thus ensuring an efficient and safe working environment.
They have proven that you can do more with less such as reduced inventory and WIP, and implementing strong Kanban systems.

Here’s what the folks who participated in this SIG had to say about our visit to Miura’s plant floor which also reflects what is liked about other CI SIGs with a Best Practice Walk included in the event.
- Great seeing someone else’s plant layout
- Seeing what other companies in our community make and that change can happen
- It gave usthe opportunity to see how others implement 5S
- See how production is organized and simplified
- Seeing a solution to a material handling issue we’ve been dealing with
- Learning how our host approaches getting buy-in to CI initiatives
We are grateful to have been invited to visit Miura and look forward to seeing what other improvements they implement the next time we see them again.
Strategic Interest Groups(SIGS) bring ”like minded” people together to share their best practices, their experiences and their ideas.
We hope you will join us for more of this collaboration at the next SIG event in your area.
