Federal Heath Sign Company (http://www.federalheath.com) received the prestigious Performance Excellence award from the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC) award in a ceremony that included representatives from State Senator Nichol’s office, officials from the City of Jacksonville, TMAC staff and various customers.

The TMAC award recognizes Federal Heath for its dedication and belief in the power of continuous improvement and its implementation of LEAN.

Green said that the “partnership between Federal Heath and TMAC exemplifies how private and public entities can work together to improve the global competitiveness of Texas business.”
According to Jacksonville Operations Manager Neal Sanford, the facility has achieved world class results, including a 50% reduction in utility costs, 62% scrap reduction, 65% inventory reduction and a higher level of customer satisfaction since starting the program.
