Normally, in any Manufacturing company the Staff and the Managers will be running after the workmen and junior staff for doing improvements. It almost considered a normal accepted fact that senior people run after junior people for improvements in a manufacturing set up! But, this is not true in case of Irudaya Raj who was a workman with Elgi Equipments limited, Coimbatore and grown from there to the next level with more responsibilities. He is one of the most passionate Kaizen practitioners that I have come across in my life. He has unending energy to pursue the improvements. He chases the staff / Managers / Directors for support on the improvements. He goes beyond his normal call of duty to ensure that the improvements are done on a continuous basis. He keeps his vigil on the wastage in the company and continuously launches initiatives to recover money from what is scrapped!! He has the company’s interests at his heart and is relentless in his follow ups! I have not seen this enthusiasm / passion in many people in my career! Elgi is lucky to have such employees in its’ fold!! Keep going Irudayaraj!! You are a star of Indian Manufacturing!!
