Lean Guns, Again
Yesterday, it was the maker of Ruger firearms… today it's Smith & Wesson acquiring a company and claiming that is lean manufacturing expertise will create value:
“… the acquisition ‘increases opportunities for both Smith & Wesson and Thompson/Center Arms. Smith & Wesson's ability to provide capital for growth and expertise in lean manufacturing processes will provide critical support for our new product pipeline and our need for increased capacity based on strong customer demand.”
Is this another Danaher story, but with firearms?
I should have called this post, “Go Ahead, Make Me Lean” since Dirty Harry used a Smith & Wesson…
