As an Apogee Enterprises company, Wausau Window and Wall Systems adopted Six Sigma and Lean Thinking as business strategies in 2001. This is the largest business improvement process ever undertaken within the company. The combination of Six Sigma and Lean Thinking brings a comprehensive set of tools and techniques for problem solving to Wausau. Six Sigma focuses on better quality at a lower cost, while Lean works to reduce process time, also at lower cost.
Since its introduction to Six Sigma / Lean, Wausau has passed along millions of dollars in savings to its customers and shareholders by reducing inventories, material costs, set-up times and by improving cycle times.
