Industrial Manufacturing: Managed Labor Staffing & Janitorial Services
As an MBE Corporate Plus certified national services provider, LACOSTA has put an end to labor shortages, increased plant production and replaced ineffective janitorial services in heavy manufacturing plants for the last 40 years.
Our customers manufacture everything from heavy appliances to agricultural and machining equipment, and include Borg Warner, CNH, Dow Chemical, Eaton, Exxon, Federal Mogul, GE Appliances, Hyundai Mobis, ITW, Johnson Controls, Raytheon, and Signode.
The LACOSTA relationship began with this industrial manufacturer in 2002 at their production plant in Racine, Wisconsin. For eight years, LACOSTA provided general janitorial services and assisted for their maintenance department during shut downs and facility renovations.
In early 2011, the Racine plant was on track to become the largest revenue producing facility for this industrial manufacturer and new opportunities arose for LACOSTA to become a more strategic partner locally and across the country.
Total cost savings generated since inception of partnership: $375,000.
This industrial manufacturer has been a customer of LACOSTA’s for over 20 years. During our partnership, LACOSTA has found many operational efficiencies and cost savings that directly impacted their bottom line. In 2007, LACOSTA was able to reduce their janitorial spend by almost half to help get them through the Great Recession. In 2014, LACOSTA obtained over 100 production positions and helped this customer to hit their financial goals in 2015 and every year since.
Total cost savings and efficiencies generated since inception of partnership: $5 million.
The LACOSTA Partnership with this Chicago-based industrial manufacturer started only with janitorial services. Throughout the years the relationship has grown to include almost every service line LACOSTA has to offer.
Total cost savings and efficiencies generated since inception of partnership: $7 million.
