Congratulations to our Waterjet Cell Leader, Andrew Williams, who received his Lean Manufacturing Fellowship  Award from The Manufacturing Institute last week.

Andy Williams awarded Lean fellowship through MI ARL Course

Last week, Farrat was proud to support Andrew Williams in receiving his Lean Manufacturing Fellowship Award from The Manufacturing Institute , at his Conferment Ceremony in Manchester.


The 2nd of our team to be awarded a Fellowship through the Accelerated Route to Learning course, Andrew undertook 10 weeks of research and study into the optimisation of Farrat’s manufacturing processes. Applying his theories within the Farrat manufacturing facility, Andrew has already enhanced our competitiveness through lead-time reduction and cost saving. Supporting Andrew through this training is part of our commitment to continuous improvement. We’re delighted for Andrew and his achievement, and look forward to continuing improving our performance and reputation within the UK manufacturing sector.
