Haws Company






  • Ongoing

Haws invents, manufactures and builds drinking fountains and standardized and customized emergency response products. They have more than 8,000 distribution locations and 250 employees worldwide.

With the invention of the drinking fountain in 1906 by Luther Haws, the Haws Sanitary Drinking Faucet Company formed in 1909 in Berkeley, California. During the 1950’s, Haws introduced emergency drench showers and safety eyewashes into its manufacturing line. Establishing headquarters in Northern Nevada in 1996, Haws continued expanding, opening global locations Haws AG (Switzerland) in 1985, Haws Manufacturing Pte, Ltd (Singapore) in 1999, and Haws-Avlis (Brazil) in 2001. To this day, Haws Corporation’s innovative spirit is driven by third, fourth and fifth generations of the Haws family.

Haws engaged us to conduct a design for manufacturability review and develop a lean assembly cell for a new product with very ambitious assembly time targets. The engagement is ongoing.
