Lean is just part of the fabric of who we are as an organization. Everybody is empowered and challenged to think lean, to think continuous improvement, to always look for a better way to do things. I think as organization we’re extremely proud of what we do and how we do it, but at the same time we’re always willing and looking for better ways to do the way we do things we do today. http://fieldfastener.com/2015/07/16/field-figures-how-lean-benefits-vendor-managed-inventory-systems/

Field has a strong commitment to give back to the Rockford community. For the Field team it's not simply about sending a check, it's about getting out there in the community and volunteering to make a difference. This summer nearly every team member at Field is volunteering their time and resources to help build a home for a family in need, through Habitat for Humanity.  This home is the first build sponsored by Field, though many team members have volunteered with Habitat in the past. http://fieldfastener.com/2015/05/18/field-partners-with-habitat-for-humanity/

The recession of 2009 impacted a lot of companies and Field was no exception. Field had been on a lean journey long before 2009, and when the recession happened the team at Field took it upon themselves and really focused on creating more lean initiatives to find better ways to do things. This ultimately has driven lean to new heights at Field and lean has now become a critical part of the business strategy. In video 4 of The Field Journey series, Jim discusses the start of lean at Field. To watch click here: https://lnkd.in/eqhJsjy

In video 5 of our blog series, Jim talks about 2 main components that separate Field from other fastener distributors: 
1. Our fastener engineering support, where we find ways to take costs out of our customers products 2. Our world class VMI programs, where we use data to drive replenishment decisions so our customer never run out of fasteners
