Top Management of the biggest Lithuanian enterprises visits BELAZ
June 16, 2017
On June 16, 2017 BELAZ received the Lithuanian delegation – among the delegates there were Board of Directors for production and also diplomatic
officials of the Republic of Lithuania in the Republic of Belarus.
During the excursion at BELAZ premises the guests showed interest in the production facilities and visited mechanical-assembly workshop No.1, thermogalvanic shop and the main assembly conveyor as well. The delegation got acquainted with the workshop, where the biggest dump trucks are assembled.
The delegates were literally astonished by the main BELAZ heavy duty dump trucks exhibition.
"It is rather difficult to impress me by huge machinery. I work for FL Technics as the Deputy CEO for Production Management. Our company performs maintenance of BOEING, AIRBUS etc., but it shall be mentioned that BELAZ trucks are really impressive" – mentioned Juozas Lapeika. – Besides I was also surprised to the upside by the cleanness in the workshops and at the plant territory. I would say I have never seen such at other enterprises. The manufacturing process is well-organized and fully automatic.
The Director of Lean Association (Lean production), the expert and one of the founders of Lean-methodology in Lithuania, Hubertas Petružis mentioned the following:
"It was very interesting to visit your enterprise. We are impressed by the technological level of the manufacturing process, which shows the huge investments
into the process".
During the negotiations the Parties exchanged the experience of Lean production.
