Jim Womack (president and founder of Lean Institute) appreciating how Honsha has taken Lean across borders.
“Honsha promises that a high sense of satisfaction comes with making a difference in the lives of others. They also promise a new level of respect working with those who have already made such missions their own mission for life. I cannot measure how my respect for these special individuals and organizations has grown and crystalized because of my experience in Lean for Hope. Thank you.”

Giving back to our community
Kimberly Clark Brazil inaugurated Camaçari Unit in the second half of 2013. Camaçari Unit is a strategy to supply the country’s northeast region, improve profit margins, and leverage the company’s growth. After eight months from the beginning of activities, Kimberly Clark Management challenged itself by implementing Lean.
Being part of this history, Samuel Obara from Honsha was invited to give a lecture about Lean to the local staff. The event was a rich experience for both the development of people working in the plant and for Social Responsibility, which motivated the event.
The lecture made people think by providing a point of view demonstrating that we can improve incrementally day-by-day. The partnership has brought transformative thought for the development of people in order to have a better company, a better region, a better country, and, consequently, a better world.
Social Responsibility – the event was promoted through a partnership between Honsha and Kimberly Clark. The partnership was sponsored through donations to the charity Creche Sementinhas.
Small gestures, but a great example for each one of us; I hope to promote more meetings like this one because it helped the factory and mainly each one of us.
