Clementina Clemco Holdings (CCH), located in Washington, MO, has participated in the Missouri One Start Grant Program for over 10 years. CCH has an unmatched understanding of air- powered, abrasive-blasting applications ranging from surface preparation to shot peening. This understanding enables us to design, manufacture, deliver and support blasting solutions and corresponding personal protective equipment that are the best fit for our customers’ job to be done – resulting in the best ease-of-use, safety and total-cost-of-ownership in the industry.
As part of our continuous improvement program in 2020, CCH held a 5-day Lean event to improve the hydro testing process for our industrial pot line. Funded by the Missouri One Start program, the event costing $8,000, resulted in an annual reduction in inventory work in process by $23,000 and improved production capacity to support additional annual sales of over $1,000,000. In addition, we were able to reduce product lead time from 15 to 5 days; reduce production reporting steps from 3 to 1; and improve on-time delivery from 65% to 85%.
The training funding support received from the State of Missouri in conjunction with East Central College, is extremely important to our Company’s continued growth and improvement enabling us to maintain our position as the leading industry manufacturer.
