About Us

Continuous Improvement

Synventive has been driving continuous improvements/lean activities since 2003. In 2012, Synventive proudly became a member of Barnes Group Inc. At Barnes Group, providing the highest quality products and solutions for our customers is our business.  To ensure we deliver on this commitment, we utilize the Barnes Enterprise System (BES).  BES drives every aspect of our culture and performance, and provides a significant competitive advantage in the global marketplace.  

Originally built on our core values and lean manufacturing principles, BES has evolved to embrace employee engagement and empowerment as crucial elements of our continuous improvement culture and our quest for operational excellence.  By leveraging employee drive and dedication in addition to scalable repeatable processes, best practice sharing, and innovative thinking and action, we provide superior value to all of our stakeholders – our customers, employees, shareholders, and community. 

The Barnes Enterprise System is guided by four key elements: Culture, Alignment, Continuous Improvement, and Results.
CULTURE: Incorporating our values as the foundation of our everyday activities.  Respecting each individual and leading with humility.  Teams work collaboratively across Barnes Group to achieve common goals.
ALIGNMENT: Employees at all levels are united in purpose and think and act systemically through a clear understanding of our company vision.  Asking “WHY” to achieve the highest level of performance.
CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT: Eliminating waste across the organization by focusing on process, data based decisions, innovation, and quality.
RESULTS: Engaging and empowering all of our employees to strive for excellence in all of our products and processes - resulting in superior value for our stakeholders.
