Vita Food Co., Ltd.

In the beginning, many in the company questioned if the magnitude of return as a result of the project could really be big enough to justify such an investment of over 30 million baht.

However, my intentions had been only to improve the overall performance of our operations through behavior change of the employees and to realize a break-even situation between fees paid to IMPAC and annualized savings in operational costs at the end of the project.

We are now reaping the fruits of the IMPAC 10000 program. The financial benefits generated during the program were impressive. We have saved 137% more than was originally projected. More significantly we got back a return on investment of 332%.

In terms of operation achievements, the project has successfully achieved:

  • Significant increase in productivity
  • Significant increase in productivity
  • Great reduction downtime (line stop)
  • Locator system installation leads to effective working tool in warehouse

We found your approach very effective. With 43 calendar weeks of the program, you are able to change our people behavior and improve our operation, which we have tried to achieve for the last 10 years.
