Lontra Head of Manufacturing Stuart Pickersgill joins the team
After an early career at Jaguar Land Rover rising through the ranks to become Group Leader and Senior Production Leader, Stuart has worked for a number of major companies, using Lean principles to improve operations at TNT, managing a team of 180 people at Specsavers to implement lean processes, reducing work in progress (WIP) by 50%, and leading production at Federal Mogul, one of the world’s major engine parts manufacturers. Before joining Lontra Stuart was a senior manager at GKN driveline where in his first year he delivered over £3.5 million in savings through increased productivity both internally where the weekend shift was no longer needed, and externally where supplier performance increased by 17%.
Steve Lindsey commented:
“A very warm welcome to Stuart who will excel our manufacturing process. Stuart is a focussed leader with an impressive background, who lives and breathes manufacturing delivery and improvement.”
