Transformation Spotlight

Hunter Trim and Cabinets



While other cabinet manufacturers are struggling to maintain the status quo, Hunter is setting new sales records.

Do you think you can create five times more revenue in your current location, with the same staff, the same resources, in shorter lead-time, with fewer quality issues, and with less inventory?  If you think that is impossible, talk to Dustin Hunter, the CEO of Hunter Trim and Cabinets in Ft Worth, TX.  In the Spring of 2013 he didn’t think it was possible either, but by the end of 2016 he had accomplished it, and he sees no ceiling on the revenue his resources can create.

Dustin contacted The Center for Lean Learning because he recognized that he couldn’t continue to do the same things and expect different results.  His business dreams weren’t becoming reality.  Have you achieved your dreams?  Have you given up on your dreams?  Well dust them off and get ready to have your dreams fulfilled, and then some.

Hunter Trim and Cabinets is a custom cabinet company whose customers are among the most discerning in the Dallas and Ft Worth area.  Delivering a quality product on time, every time differentiates Hunter from the competition.  While other cabinet manufacturers are struggling to maintain the status quo, Hunter is setting new sales records.  How have they accomplished that?

The professionals from The Center for Lean Learning took the Hunter staff on a Journey of Discovery.  Discovering how they could employ Lean tools and techniques to create quantum leap productivity improvements and make their work easier, better, faster, and cheaper.  Their journey started with organizing the workplace.  Seems simple, and it is.  The results are astounding though.  Here is just one example of how the staff started to engage.  The before picture is one of the assembly stations on day one of their journey.  The after picture is the same assembly area two weeks later.  Once the ball started rolling, people got excited, and they have not looked back.
