Production Operation

As a LEAN manufacturing organization, Stonecast’s foundation is built on eliminating waste and having a smooth process flow throughout the organization.  In an LEAN manufacturing environment, clearly defined information flow is an important part of the operation as well.  This is why Stonecast utilizes Standard Work Instructions (SWI) for every aspect of work throughout the operation.   The SWI endures consistency in work that is performed as each step of a process is clearly defined.  Each SWI identifies the task, tools, people, resources, checks, and documents that are needed to complete the work correctly.

Quality is built into the fabric of every Stonecast manufacturing operation, from the state-of-the-art Mold Shop, the computer-controlled batch precast concrete mix process, the high quality materials used, and the product testing and inspections.  This is how Stonecast excels with top level scores in all of their PCI quality audits.

With a significant investment to expand architectural precast panel capability and offer insulated precast sandwich panels, Stonecast now has efficient hydraulic tilt tables, new pre-stressing equipment, and new large crane capacity.  These investments add to Stonecast’s credentials as a leading producer of architectural precast panels, structures, and cast stone.
