Our Process

We have developed state-of-the-art methods to deliver value to your team, resulting in a manufacturing process that is:

Lean

At WestStar, we have significantly reduced waste to improve overall efficiency and streamline our globally competitive process. This involves highly automated “lights out” machining, dedicated fixtures to minimize set-up time, 5S compliance company-wide, Poka Yoke mistake proofing and detailed process control.

Green

Waste comes in many forms, including energy. Using the latest in solar technology, we have drastically reduced our annual energy requirements, which allows us to deliver more cost-effective solutions to our customers.

On Time

At WestStar, we strive to go beyond just making what the customer orders. We know supply chains and purchase-planning software can be demanding and cumbersome. That is why we have taken steps to dispense with weekly and monthly purchase orders. Our customers place one purchase order per year. We download their inventory each day and use that information to drive our scheduling and production, eliminating the need for customer involvement.

Our state-of-the-art inventory management and same-day response system has resulted in effective solutions for our customers. We have gone from customer chaos to 100 percent on-time delivery, with no stock out and no excess inventory. We know the customer’s job is not just buying parts, but also managing results.
