On Tuesday, Mount Carmel CEO toured BraunAbility with general manager Mark Pettigrew. Mark showed the team around the plant, explaining how their process of "on demand" manufacturing works and why it helps them hit their targets for getting product out the door and to their customers in the most efficient way possible. BraunAbility will be celebrating it's 50th anniversary next year, but the company's presence here in Mount Carmel is fairly recent. In 2018, the company purchased B&D Independence, which was founded in the early 1980s and purchased by John Evans in 2008. B&D Independence did essentially the same thing that Braun Ability does in their Mount Carmel facility, namely manufacture and sell transfer seat bases for conversion vans and certain other vehicles which enables persons with disabilities to reclaim their mobility and personal independence. Following the tour of the plant, Mark sat down with our CEO team members and discussed how they use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure their productivity against their goals and projections. BraunAbility is the only company that manufactures a transfer seat base in the United States, so if you happen to see a vehicle which makes use of one, odds are it was built right here in Mount Carmel. Many thanks to Mark Pettigrew for meeting with Mount Carmel CEO this morning to show us around the plant! And thanks for the awesome, custom built cell phone holders! https://www.braunability.com/us/en.html
