How do you stay ahead of the competition in manufacturing, moving successfully forward without missing a beat? We believe it’s through continuous improvement—in fact, it’s built right into our mission. We always aim to exceed requirements and expectations by improving constantly and adding new methods of success all the time.
We’ve recently done just that, and we have several new additions that are keeping us on our toes.
First, we’re proud and excited to welcome Laura Ark to our team, as our new Customer Service Representative. Laura is a Springfield native and a graduate of Akron University, and she comes to us with ten years of customer service experience.
As the main point of contact for our customers, Laura’s primary responsibility is to remind us daily why we are here: to deliver the highest quality products on time. So far, she’s doing an excellent job of it. When not keeping us in line, Laura enjoys spending time with her daughter, playing tennis, and the occasional road trip. We’re thrilled to have her on board.
Our next addition might not have the personality of Laura, but is exciting nonetheless. We’ve installed a new Aida 694-ton servo press, and in the short time since we began using it we have already experienced increased productivity. We look forward to fully utilizing all of the technological advances that a servo press offers. We’re confident our clients will immediately see the benefits.
Last but certainly not least, we are very excited to announce our plans for expansion, which over the next three years will yield an additional 20,000 square feet and 40 new jobs.
According to our President and CEO, David Arndt, “The $4 million expansion in Clark County will facilitate our continued growth with a 20,000 square foot expansion and the addition of a large bed, 1600 ton mechanical press line. The addition will accommodate further assembly operations, inventory storage and anticipated future stamping requirements.”
Along with the addition of our new Aida servo press lines and new team members such as Laura, this expansion serves as the perfect representation of our commitment to continuous improvement.
Our facilities, our team, our products and services, and our community will all benefit from these improvements, and we couldn’t be more excited.
