IndustryWeek magazine selected Raytheon Company’s Integrated Air Defense Center in Andover, Mass., one of its “Best Plants” for 2010.

The yearly competition evaluates manufacturing facilities in several categories, including quality, one-time delivery, worker safety and focus on continuous improvement. Since 2007, the Integrated Air Defense Center has achieved a 6 percent year-over-year increase in productivity and a reduction of manufacturing floor space requirements of 45,000 square feet.  Over the past couple of years, the facility has had a 100 percent on-time delivery rating and no-customer rejections.

“Continuous improvement is an on-going journey for us,” said Dan Ryan, vice president of operations and integrated supply chain at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. “Our philosophy is everybody, everyday – ideas from across all areas of the operation are essential for us to continue to increase our efficiency and capacity while maintaining our quality.”
