Creative Recycling in General Cable's Cuernavaca, Mexico Plant
In April 2014, students from a local university joined General Cable's associates at the company's manufacturing plant in Cuernavaca, Mexico, to participate in a Lean Six Sigma Kaizen event. They formed teams and competed to generate new ideas to continue our "Zero Landfill" thinking. One of the most creative ideas was the recycling of cable reels and cardboard found within the company's Cuernavaca plant into create furniture and décor that now resides in the associates' break room. "Hats off" to these students and our General Cable associates and to their commitment to thinking "green!"
