Widely accepted as the instigators of lean manufacturing , it’s no surprise the automotive industry was quick off the mark in implementing visual management.

As a result, the automotive industry is well advanced in shadow boards as part of continuous improvement and Kaizen initiatives (among others).

Some of Klipspringer’s automotive projects include health and safety stations, tool boards, cleaning stations, and colour coding implementation for some of the most reputable automotive brands and their supply chains. Current projects also include countrywide standardisation for main dealer service centres.


Shadow Boards

Provide equipment with a definite home for multiple efficiencies.


Cleaning Stations

Ensure cleaning equipment is in the right place, at the right time.


Tool Boards

Put "a place for everything and everything in its place" into practice.


Visual Management

Make key metrics visual, visible, understandable and relevant.

Who we work with

What our Automotive customers say

“We were looking for a 5S shadow-board supplier who could supply board with stands and the tools colour coded to match the various areas in our manufacturing plant. After many visits from many suppliers (who promised they could deliver such a task), Klipspringer won the business on many accounts. They delivered on what we wanted for our business, the design matched everything we asked for including using our Company colours and logo, and the overall design of the board. They also delivered on cost which in any business is key. Everybody else didn’t or couldn’t meet our requirements or budget for the project – Klipspringer did.”
