Getting to the Factory of the Future | Continuous Improvement in the Signify Production Processes

February 6, 2024

Join us for an exclusive Vision Dinner on February 6th to discover the transformative power of this innovative system in action, as Lars will delve into its practical implications. During his key note, Lars will put a special focus on Signify's recent project—the automation of their warehousing, using AGV’s among other things, which plays a pivotal role in attaining their "factory of the future" goals. Topics of discussion will span optimal factory locations, the symbiotic relationship between factory and company culture, and insightful examples from Signify's evolving processes.

  • Small scaled peer session
  • Open dialogue by means of the Chatham House Rule

Lars van der Meulen, Signify

Sign up
Lars van der Meulen

Head of Manufacturing Digital Solutions Europe + GCGM

After Lars van der Meulen studied Industrial Engineering and Management Science at the TU Eindhoven, he immediately started working at Philips. He has stayed with Philips’ Lighting division during his career and when Signify split from Philips he chose to continue his trajectory at Signify where he ended up in his current role.



No production process is ever perfect, and therefore, the search for improvement never ends. Improving production processes, however, is often both a lengthy and costly endeavor, and can be challenging to enforce. In his push for innovation, Lars van der Meulen, Head of Manufacturing Digital Solutions Europe & GCGM at Signify, and his team have developed a system that not only facilitates continuous improvement but also establishes a feedback loop that makes improvement come naturally at Signify.
