Pioneering ‘lean thinking’ from Dundee

FOLLOWING its acquisition by the Dover Corporation in 2016, the Tokheim Dispenser and Systems businesses are now a part of Dover Fueling solutions.

Aiming to deliver innovative and quality fuelling solutions to the worldwide retail petroleum industry in the safest, most efficient, reliable, profitable and environmentally responsible manner, the business has its base in Dundee.
A spokesperson said: “Tokheim takes great pride in our ability to be a leader within the industry. This achievement is supported by a company culture of continuous improvement for every team member, and to that end the Dundee Manufacturing Facility has become a pioneer of ‘Lean Thinking’, a process that promotes continuous advances in systems and practices by following ‘Lean Principles’ such as Kaizen and Lean Visualisation.
“Many continuous improvements throughout our Dundee Manufacturing Centre contribute to positive change within our design, logistics and manufacturing processes, ensuring Tokheim continue to lead the industry with innovative, high-quality products, systems and processes.”
