Under the leadership of company president Jerry Hace, 140+ year-old Gooding Co. Inc. has changed its focus from being a commercial and forms printer to printing inserts and outserts for the pharmaceutical and medical industries. This change was accomplished by:
- Moving to a new, state-of-the-art facility which incorporates stringent temperature, humidity, and pest controls
- Investing significantly in specialized technology and equipment for printing inserts and outserts
- Becoming cGMP compliant
- Following the Lean Manufacturing Philosophy of maximizing value and minimizing waste
- Entering into the Continual Improvement Process (CIP) program
The results so far have been remarkable. Since Hace bought the company in 1990, Gooding has more than tripled in size and continues to grow steadily.
