Teams that discuss their improvements on a weekly bases


CleanLease has more than a century of experience in the cleaning and renting of high quality textiles. The first laundry opened up in 1910 in Wormerveer and has since then developed into a leading service provider in the medical, care and hospitality sectors.

Our company already went through an improvement process when we started using Cierpa Kaizen. Our employees had many ideas on improvement, but it wasn’t always clear what the added value of those ideas would be. As a result many ideas received too little follow-up.

We also worked with separate action lists that made the securing of current actions and improvements quite difficult. To end this we introduced Cierpa Kaizen at all of our Dutch locations. The tool is web-based so everything is accessible via the internet.

We are very proud of our achievements using Cierpa Kaizen:

  • All actions are secured by using a standardized method that everyone understands
  • All improvement ideas and actions are measurable
  • Dedicated teams talk to shift transfer teams weekly about improvements
  • Employees feel they are being heard

Cierpa Kaizen has a positive effect on both the process and all of the employees. It supplied everyone with tools on how to pick up and secure improvements within the organization.

I would like to know more about Cierpa Kaizen

Production of expansion tanks at Flamco: up to 50 % reduction in maintenance

A job ad in BN De Stem led us to Cierpa OEE.
