Talan Products is proud to announce that it has received a 2015 Evolution of Manufacturing Award presented by Smart Business Magazine.
Talan was honored for its achievements in manufacturing, including its commitment to safety and efficiency in its manufacturing processes. The company’s incident rate decreased from nearly 20 in 2006 to zero in 2014. Over the same span, its DART rate (days away, restrictions, transfers) decreased from 10 to zero. Talan has maintained a DART rate of zero since 2013.
Talan’s commitment to efficiency is demonstrated in its investment in new equipment. The company purchased a remanufactured 600-ton Minster Hevi-Stamper press, which will be operational in the spring. The press will be paired with a new deburring machine capable of handling stampings up to 14 inches in diameter. Both new machines will be installed as part of a new production line that will allow Talan to bring previously-outsourced work in-house.
“We are extremely honored to receive a 2015 Evolution of Manufacturing Award,” says Talan CEO Steve Peplin. “It’s a tremendous source of pride for us, because it’s come as the result of hard work and commitment from all of our people, as we continue to work to maintain high standards in everything we do, and continue taking steps to increase the ease of doing business with Talan.”
