Payette Brewing Co.
Brewing Up Success for Payette Brewing Co.
When The Payette Brewing Company participated in the Operational Excellence Program, it was operating a 15-barrel brewing system in a Garden City plant that generated four year-round beers. The company was in the process of creating more choices of canned beer available in bars, restaurants, and retail locations throughout Idaho and the Northwest.
As a new and growing brewery, there were plenty of issues facing the Payette team. Finding the time, expertise, and manpower needed to address production issues was a challenge. Management knew that despite the many strengths of his team, working with an outside group of subject matter experts such as TechHelp, a member of the MEP National Network™, could reveal overlooked issues and opportunities for improvement. Since completing the Operational Excellence Program, Payette has opened a state of the art brewery.
The E3 Excellence program introduced us to a great network of local experts and gave us a repeatable process for making operational improvements.
