MISSION AND METHODOLOGY

We will work with our customers, suppliers and employees to determine and exceed their expectations.

Maruichi Leavitt has adopted the Japanese 5S methodology as a way to organize and manage our workspace more efficiently. This methodology uses a list of five Japanese words which each start with the letter "s" when translated into English; hence, the "5S" designation. We've implemented this methodology to improve efficiency and flow by eliminating waste. "5S" not only improves workflow and sets standardization, it helps to promote a safer working environment.

History

1956

Leavitt Tube and Metal Company founded and incorporated by Dave Leavitt

Leavitt Tube began manufacturing mechanical steel tube with one slitter and two tube mills. Over the next 25 years, Leavitt would expand with the introduction of two structural tube mills capable of production up to 4" x 4" x .250" wall.

1981

W 80 Mill Commissioned

The W 80 mill was added to Leavitt Tube's growing steel tubular products list. The mill is capable of producing HSS up to 10" x 10" x .500" wall, equivalent rectangles and rounds up to 12.75".
