Plant Tour: Vitamix

Our World-Class Lean Journey

Learn about the Vitamix Lean journey, which, like most, has not been a straight line. You will talk with team members and leaders who will share their specific stories, successes, and lessons learned. Most of the time will be spent touring the primary operations facility, stopping to observe, and discussing specific aspects of the Vitamix Lean system. Highlights will include visual metrics in production and non-production areas and the integration of problem solving and kaizen with those metrics.


Vitamix is a 96-year-old family business that designs and manufactures premium blenders for the home and commercial foodservice markets. All manufacturing is done in the Cleveland area, but to accommodate sales in over 100 countries, Vitamix has nine facilities in three countries.
