Geobrugg AG from Romanshorn (TG) develops and manufactures solutions to protect against natural hazards such as rockfalls, landslides or avalanches. The company also offers protection from all types of accelerating objects in mining and tunnelling, on race tracks, in manufacturing and elsewhere. As a business that produces globally, Geobrugg places great emphasis on internal processes. Back in the noughties, it already introduced a lean management strategy to reduce types of waste to a minimum. By employing this tactic, the company created the right foundation for later digitalisation steps – and today benefits from lean processes at all levels.
