5S Supply is pleased to announce our 7th Anniversary Celebration!

5S Supply Team

Tony, Jennifer, Maggie and Buster

We have been lucky to serve the Lean community for the past seven years and want show our gratitude with a ‘Lucky 7’ celebration. We started 5S Supply because we knew how hard it was to find items for kaizen events. We thought – there has to be a better way, so we created 5S Supply. To help recognize this milestone 5S Supply will have special offers, new products and even a free webinar series by a Shingo Publication Award Winner, Beau Keyte during the month of August. Stop by our website to see all the happenings www.5Ssupply.com.

Our Story

5S Supply Warehouse Frankfort, IL

5S Supply Warehouse Frankfort, IL

It all began as the proverbial garage start-up except we were in a large conference room in an office building. As we grew, we then moved to the basement of my sister’s house. Because of our loyal customers and ongoing success, while striving to bring products that help Lean implementations, we had to move to a larger facility in our current location and warehouse in Frankfort, IL. Over the years we have continued to bring more value added content for our customers. In 2009, we revamped the website to make it more appealing and easier to navigate. From our humble beginnings of showcasing 5S related items we have expanded to offer anything Lean – as we say “from A3 to Value Stream Mapping.” With over 1,000 items I’m confident that we can help you find what you need. Many of our products that we developed came out of our experience helping organizations on their Lean journey – from creating 5S Red Tag Stations, inventing the 5S Sticky Tag, our very popular Gauge Range marking system, to more recent Kanban Posts and Hourly Production Boards. We continually look for items that we wished we had in our earlier days of implementing Lean. We promise to remain the leader in product innovations related to Lean.


We understand that there are many ways you can obtain supplies for your Lean implementation and we want to earn your business with every transaction. Our goal was to make a “one stop shop” for all your Lean needs. You don’t have to waste time going to several websites, sending people out to local stores or even sending multiple purchase orders – we have made it simple and easy to find what you need.


Thank you again for all your support over the years, we couldn’t have done it without you. We are blessed to be part of such a supportive Lean community and we will continue to find ways to give back.

All the best!

Tony Manos
