Lean Activities


Due to our products and our customers' needs we see it as crucial to develop and produce worldwide competitive products in the heart of Europe. A means to achieve this is our lean management approach.

It means for us to continually improve products, processes and the entire company. Here we see a holistic approach in which the employees are in the foreground. Their know-how is the basis of our success.

Constant improvement mainly means to better use the resources available. To increase efficiency in all areas and to increase the quality of the products and the working environment is the consequence of the Lean concept. Processes that control themselves, jobs that promote health, automation, where it is helpful, communication that creates transparency and flexibility that can be accessed wherever it is needed.

We go our own way here. Continuous improvement processes and Lean workshops are flanked by training, audits and benchmarking activities. By now ELESTA GmbH shares its experience with other companies and institutions, for example as best practice partner. Last but not least our activities were honored with the Swiss Lean Award 2012.
