MPE’s implementation of lean allows it to boost quality and efficiency for its customers.

After nearly 40 years, MPE Inc. continues to evolve and adapt to meet the needs of its customers. “We’ve been lean and flexible to adapt our business with our customers,” President and CEO Hank Kohl declares.
Based in Milwaukee, the contract manufacturer specializes in their Concept to Completion(TM) model, providing cradle-to-grave product lifecycle management services for developing new design platforms for medical OEMs. MPE started operations in 1978 as a precision metal fabricator but grew over time within the medical and technology market segments.
Since then, MPE has grown by offering new services to broaden its customer base and offerings. “We’ve been involved in building products at various levels of assembly and integration that you would see in a typical hospital environment. It is a great feeling to see the fruits of our labors for our contributions in the operating room with helping to improve the quality of life for others,” Kohl says.
