In a technical industry like ours, it is often difficult to explain to others what it is we do and how we do it. We can get the major points across (we make things) but it is hard to explain the full scope of how involved manufacturing is and how that component goes from raw materials to a finished product. To help bring our work life together with our home life we decided to host an open house so that we could show family and friends the completion of our facility expansion project and our new press line. So, on a bright Sunday in December, we opened our doors and threw a party!
This opportunity lets each employee bring their loved ones to the shop, a sort of Bring Your Family to Work day, to show them what it is they do and the types of machines they are responsible for running. It was fun to demonstrate how selected machines work and we were proud to show off the newly expanded shop.
It was a tremendous success! We hosted 80 employees and their guests (over 200 in total) and we ended the day with a buffet meal and a raffle drawing with prizes generously provided by the company and our suppliers. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed, fun atmosphere.
We are very thankful to all of our dedicated employees who have contributed to the success we have achieved in 2015. We are looking forward to another successful year in 2016!
