Orbus Exhibit & Display Group, one of North America’s leading wholesale suppliers and manufacturers of display, exhibit, graphic and event solutions, achieved 20 years of ISO certification in December.
Orbus holds ISO 9001:2015 for quality management, providing its distributors the highest quality of products and services in the industry. Orbus also holds ISO 14001:2015 for environmental management, motivating its increased environmental protection initiatives and driving Orbus to recycle 90 percent of its total waste. On Dec. 13,Orbus was presented with an award for its commitment during a small ceremony that took place at its headquarters in Woodridge, Ill.
Also, in 2018, Orbus implemented 5S Lean Training Initiatives in all departments, creating a cleaner and more efficient work space for all employees. In 2019, it started to adopt Six Sigma principals, a data-driven method of evaluating product, process or service use and creation to ensure that variation and defects are reduced or eliminated. Orbus Las Vegas recently had three employees achieve Six Sigma Green Belt Status, a recognition of proficiency in training and application of Six Sigma practices, and Orbus in Woodridge will have more than 20 employees certified in early 2020 as well.
“Every process and product is constantly being evaluated to ensure that Orbus is providing the best to its dealers and that the Orbus team members are using their time most effectively,” says Giles Douglas, president and CEO of Orbus. “These initiatives have had a great impact on the operations and our production teams and we look forward to continuous knowledge gain, better practice and growth.”
