Tec-Option was founded 20 years ago in Blissfield, Mich., by Bryan Domschot, who utilized his background in welding and knowledge of the business. He firmly believed Tec-Option could offer solutions that would greatly enhance efficiencies and save money for Tier 1 automotive suppliers. “I’m a robotic welding engineer by trade,” Domschot says. “I have been involved in many different processes during my career, but mainly focused on resistance welding. I have found that few people truly understand resistance welding.”
Domschot took Kaizen classes while working for a Tier 1 automotive supplier and was motivated by the messages conveyed. “They were challenging us to think outside the box,” Domschot recalls.
Kaizen methodology promotes sustainable continuous improvement as a daily way of life for every member within the organization. It supports the flow, implementation and recognition of improvement proposals made by all collaborators.
