Since Stubbs Contractors overhauled its traditional business model for a new approach based around “Lean” manufacturing principles, owner Robert Stubbs said the company was now winning accolades, attention and new business.
It sounds pretty simple, and it is: the leaner your business, the better it performs. A lean business doesn’t mean fewer staff doing more; in fact, it’s about getting the best out of people, processes and equipment. Steffan Kelly of The Lean Hub, says LEAN is “a way of thinking and acting”. It’s being focussed on performance and creating efficiencies.
As the logging industry continues to track a significant innovation curve in mechanisation, developing machinery to get workers out of high risk situations, East Coast logging contractor Stubbs Contractors is developing its own business alongside new innovations and new equipment.
