As the week of August 13-17 drew to a close at Lean Focus Business System™ University’s Leadership System Boot Camp, Kaspar Companies’ leaders took home some critical lessons to all nine of its subsidiaries, in both the theory and application of lean manufacturing principles. Headquartered in Shiner, Texas, Kaspar Companies was represented by top managers from BEDROCK Truck Beds, Espresso Marketing & Design, Horizon Firearms, iota Outdoors, Kaspar Manufacturing, Ranch Hand, Silverback Homes, Texas Precious Metals, and Truckfitters. Led by CEO Jason Kaspar, KCI is committed to three core values: stewardship, versatility, and family. Those values were exemplified well by all thirty participants during the week-long event. Not only did everyone graduate with flying colors, they showed—lesson after lesson—what leadership, teamwork, and winning look like in an environment that is fully committed to the lean journey.
