GWR has been manufacturing seat belts and safety systems for over 35 years. This experience
has allowed us to refine our craft. Our in-house manufacturing capabilities give us full control over the final product, and allow us to provide customized solutions to fit your specific needs. Additionally, we recently invested in $2MM of automated machines and technology, increasing our production capacity to over 2 million seat belts and safety products per year.
We understand that different retractor technology, performance and sizing are required for different applications and customer specifications, so our different components and the ability to test them in-house make sure our customers have access to different solutions for their needs. Having our own retractor technology, and manufacturing our retractors and systems in our own factories, allow us to customize for different specifications. Additionally, having our own tooling gives us control of our technology and our costs.
At our global facilities we focus on continuously improving our processes, and implementing the principles of Lean Manufacturing. We have designed our lines to be efficient and flexible in order to avoid overburden,inconsistencies, and waste.
We improve and streamline our business operations continuously, always driving for innovation and evolution. At our manufacturing facilities, we have built a culture of stopping to fix problems, to get quality right the first time. Our manufacturing is organized and ordered using 5S, a system of techniques developed in Japan that help enable Just in Time manufacturing.
The benefits are reduction in defect rates, faster lead times and improved productivity, ultimately creating and delivering value for our customers and safety for the end consumer.
