LeanCor Helps Golf Ball Maker "Tackle SKU-Intensive Product Lines, Find Supply Chain Sweet Spot"


"Acushnet, maker of Titleist and Pinnacle golf balls, sought an ultra-lean product flow to bring its game to the next level. In the highly competitive world of manufacturing and marketing golf balls, bags, and shoes, the company [partnered with LeanCor Consulting] for an aggressive play to drive down costs and boost supply chain efficiency."

"During its initial two-month pilot period, Acushnet achieved a fill rate of 100 percent, yet did so with a 30-percent reduction in finished goods inventory. It decreased rework costs by $65K annually."

Jay Traficante - Director of Supply Chain and Procurement for Acushnet - "sees the new culture, techniques, and tools that LeanCor introduced as setting a precedent that will help the company tackle other SKU-intensive product lines."
