Puratos Corp – Six Sigma Green Belt Training
Background: (Puratos Corp)
Puratos is an international group offering a full range of innovative products, raw materials and application expertise to the bakery, patisserie and chocolate sectors. Their headquarters are just outside Brussels (Belgium), where the company was founded in 1919. Almost a century later, their products and services are available in over 100 countries around the world and, in many cases, are produced by their network of local subsidiaries. Above all, they aim to be ‘reliable partners in innovation’ helping their customers around the world to deliver nutritious and tasty food to their local communities.
Puratos Corp aims to be a reliable partner in innovation helping customers deliver nutritious and tasty food to their local communities. Customers tend to be artisans, industrial manufacturers, supermarkets, and food service companies. They wanted their employees to have the tools and techniques to improve and evaluate supply chain logistics and distribution processes to improve production in daily operations. With those goals Puratos wanted to go through Six Sigma Greenbelt training.
Puratos worked with NJMEP to work on the Six Sigma Greenbelt Certification. Six Sigma is a universally recognized standard of excellence for continuous process improvement. This course will prepare all participants for Green Belt certification – an accomplishment that will add value to each of their their careers. The participants will have the tools and techniques to improve and evaluate supply chain logistics and distribution processes to improve production in daily operations. The students will understand project opportunities and determine quantifiable savings by participating in Six Sigma training.
In this 5-day course attendees will master the use of the Six Sigma approach to quantify the critical quality issues in the company. The Philosophy of Six Sigma recognizes that there is a direct correlation between the number of product defects, wasted operating costs, and the level of customer satisfaction.
The implementation of Six Sigma is a team process. As a Six Sigma Green Belt, attendees will be equipped to support the Six Sigma implementation in their company.
Puratos Corp benefited greatly from NJMEP’s help in many ways:
- New Sales: $100,000
- Retained Sales: $100,000
- Cost Savings: $200,000
- Retained Employees: 2
“The training was insightful and taught in a way that it could be tailored to any industry that is looking to become better, cheaper, and faster all while improving quality. The training was data driven and gave us tools to create metrics to assist us with tightening our spec.” – Jaimian Davis, Warehouse Manager of Puratos Corp.
