About 18 months ago, Aztec Machine and Repair of Bloomfield sent its management and supervisory personnel, as well as its production floor workers, to a class in the fundamentals of lean manufacturing given by the New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership, or MEP — a nonprofit agency that helps small and midsized U.S. businesses create and preserve jobs by implementing money — and time-saving production and administration measures.
Aztec — which provides machining and fabrication services for the many oil, gas and mining industries in the Four Corners area — had two goals for the training: to increase the lean manufacturing literacy of its work force and to generate momentum toward its next goal of becoming ISO registered.
ISO registration is proof that a company complies with global quality management standards in producing its product or service. Because many major purchasers and companies require their suppliers to have this registration, training coordinator Manuel Figueroa and company owner Tim Montoya felt it would show Aztec’s clients that the company performed consistent and reliable work and allow the company to expand its outreach.
