We are committed to lean management principles that increase our efficiencies and effectiveness.
The Six Sigma Management System is Element Solutions preferred tool to identify and solve business issues, increase profitability, gain market share, and enhance customer satisfaction. It is a proven, comprehensive, flexible system for achieving, sustaining and maximizing business success.
The core foundation of Six Sigma is a significant investment in training, followed up by a commitment to implementation report-outs and embedding the Six Sigma philosophy into the corporate culture. Our businesses have used the Six Sigma methodology for more than 15 years. During this time, we trained over 155 Black Belts and over 500 Green Belts throughout our global businesses, including having Black Belts in all three major regions (Asia, Americas and Europe).
This commitment spans all disciplines within the Element Solutions' businesses, as we have trained Black Belts in operations, quality, sales, marketing and technical field support. The internal processes that we've addressed include, customer service, new product development, manufacturing and finance. In fact, we have even brought the Six Sigma methodology to our distributors, having trained key partners in our route-to-market.
Element Solutions uses the Six Sigma methodology to aid in the meeting and exceeding of our financial performance goals in order to strengthen our position as the world leaders in the markets we serve.
In turn, this results in improved customer satisfaction, operational excellence and enhanced development of our employees. Our global leadership team is committed to implementing the Six Sigma philosophy to support our continued growth and success.
