Tubelite adds Larry Richert as continuous improvement manager

Larry Richert has been named continuous improvement manager for Tubelite Inc., serving both facilities in Reed City and Walker, Mich.

His responsibilities include the development, standardization, training and implementation of the company’s continuous improvement tools used across all business levels.

After joining Tubelite, Richert moved to Ludington, Mich., where he, his wife and their four children live on a family fruit farm. For more than 15 years, Richert previously owned and operated Operations Management Group in Kalamazoo, Mich., helping companies improve communication, productivity and profitability. His practice specialized in rapid implementation of continuous improvement and Lean manufacturing principals.

Before returning to Michigan, Richert worked in Minnesota for Marvin Windows & Doors as the company’s continuous improvement manager. His career experience also includes plant and production management, and mechanical engineering for Richard-Allan Medical. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Western Michigan University and is a certified Lead Assessor. Richert has led more than 16 organizations to ISO9000, ISO/TS16949, VDA6.2, AS9000, D1 9000, ISO1400, and cGMP Quality System registration.

He will apply his expertise in these methodologies, applications and tools to support all of Tubelite’s operations. Earlier this year, Lean manufacturing principals were applied to optimize workflow and performance at both of Tubelite’s recently expanded Michigan locations. ###
