About Us

Sempai was founded in 2007 as a Lean Manufacturing Consultancy to assist organisations serious about improving the performance of their business. 


"Our vision is to transfer true lean capability to the hidden heroes in manufacturing to help them make the right things better"


Our lean transformation work has supported the Automotive, Aerospace, Construction, Food & Drink & Medical Devices sectors on shopfloors and boardrooms across 4 continents, upskilling 1000+ people to drive forward 100+ businesses in the UK, Europe, the US, China, India, Japan and South America. 


We've designed and run multi-site lean programmes and, among other clients, have consulted for 10 years to a Toyota Group company, created the JCB Production System and established Lean Academies for two £bn global manufacturing businesses. 


We're recognised industry experts (regularly speaking, publishing & judging awards) and would now like to take the next step and develop a digital product offering to scale up the business and adapt to the changing market.
