This area is divided into three essential processes: CNC machining, the extrusion area, and the area for the special processes of paint, heat treatment, and hardware installation.
Initiatives that define Gulfstream Mexicali Culture:
QUALITY: To reach the highest standards in the manufacture of our parts, and of course, our air craft, we rely on methods and initiatives that seek to improve the quality of each of our processes. At Gulfstream, we have a culture of Zero Defects, which promotes (one) to always think of the phrase “Don’t take it, don’t make it, don’t pass it on.”
”Don’t take it means carrying out a detailed inspection of the materials and tools [you will use] before starting a job to assure that they are in good condition. “Don’t make it”, means finding the way to the job without generating defects, and “Don’t pass it on” implies the inspection of the work carried out before passing it to the next operation.
Mejórale (Improve it!) is a program that seeks continuous improvement in all aspects where the employees participate in an active and direct manner in echo for the actions the company practices, in that way having the opportunity to be a part of the changes that are generated day to day in the organization.
This system allows each employee to contribute his ideas for improvement and to implement them on his own, challenging them to improve the results they obtain in a daily fashion with established methods. The idea is registered once put into practice. Each idea, though it may be simple, has value.
Mejórale has as its philosophy the liberation of the personnel’s creative power and the necessity of seeing the impact of his ideas reflected in betterment that are projected in the business.
