Just-in-Time Delivery and Lean Manufacturing with Design & Build Practices


MultiSource Manufacturing LLC was founded in 1998, more than 30 years after the use of lean manufacturing solidified in most automotive and other industrial plants. The “Toyota Way” or lean, just-in-time manufacturing utilizes precise operations to eliminate waste, reduce inventory, and prevent unnecessary production. Lean manufacturing is better for customers, suppliers, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), the industrial world, and even the environment. Since our foundation, we have made it our mission to practice lean manufacturing and make just-in-time delivery a core value. Today, we offer precision based design & build services to a wide range of industries to supply components, parts, and full assemblies to OEMs and many other customers. Not only do we provide innovative solutions for the food industry that meet high sanitation standards, we also build complex, highly regulated parts and assemblies for the medical device, semiconductor, and defense industries.

Design & Build

As a design & build contract manufacturer, MultiSource is able to provide one-stop-shop services for any project. From the ground up, we work with clients to turn their specifications into a fully developed prototype that is then manufactured to scale in size and quantity, including packaging in-house and shipping for just-in-time delivery.


There are many benefits of lean manufacturing and just-in-time delivery practices, not only for us as a company, but also for all of our customers. Some of those advantages include:

Cost Savings:

Because we can limit costs for materials and production time by only manufacturing exactly what we need to comprehensively meet the specifications of all customers, we can also provide more affordable and efficient services to our clientele.

Waste Reduction:

Every aspect of our production, from materials to worker output, sees waste reduction with lean practices. This also includes elimination of wasted time, overused storage space, energy, and excess equipment maintenance.

Continuous Improvement:

By following the lean manufacturing standard of kaizen, we practice making small, continuing improvements in all areas of our facilities, project management, worker safety, recordkeeping, and more.

Supplier Relationships:

As we work more and more frequently with our trusted materials suppliers, those partnerships grow and become stronger like any other relationship. Lean manufacturing supports constant contact with the people who help us get the exact tools, solutions, and materials we need to build.

Increased Precision:

Thanks to strong relationships with our materials suppliers and our dedication to kaizen/continuous improvements, we are able to increase the quality of our products daily. Every day we find ways to improve precision, not only in our parts, components, and assemblies, but also in our safety practices, operational procedures, and customer service.

As a design & build company, we rely on our lean manufacturing and just-in-time delivery standards to provide the best quality possible to our clients.
