GLRPPR Sector Resource: E3 Case Study: McLaughlin Body Company

Title:
E3 Case Study: McLaughlin Body Company

Abstract:
Founded in 1902, McLaughlin Body Company (MBC) once thought of strictly as a leader in the manufacturing of Rollover Protection Structures, today, in addition to best-in-class enclosure technology for vehicles in military, construction, agriculture, mining and other rugged work environments, is a leader in operator protection systems and metal components or heavy-duty equipment manufacturing. MBC is committed to good business practices which benefit people, planet and profit. Efficient use of resources, recycling and emissions reduction as well as a focus on continuous improvement are just a few recent successes at their two manufacturing facilities. MBC's main goals were to have the E3 assessment uncover opportunities to reduce cost, environmental footprint and look for continuous improvement opportunities. The two day assessment reviewed the paint line process at the Rock Island facility from weld through final inspection. The facility has an area of about 500,000 square feet.
