What is lean? Lean is about creating maximum value for our customers at the lowest total cost while respecting our associates and offering safe and rewarding careers. Sunland began its lean journey in 2014 and is building a culture rooted in continuous process improvement and empowering associates to expose and solve problems.
Sunland customers benefit from our focus on eliminating waste and creating an efficient operation as part of a broader supply chain.
