It’s not hard to imagine how challenging it can be to run a successful fabrication business. You’ve seen our newsletters and probably taken notice of the size and complexity of many types of fixed equipment we build. Have you ever given thought to what it takes to get one of those projects across the finish line? Not to mention doing so on-time and on (or under!) budget.
Imagine doing the same complex work, but in the field at our customers’ sites. Being organized and working through our systems allows us to perform the same work, but in a foreign environment. Organization in the field is paramount to our ability to succeed and provide an unparalleled customer experience. Having all the equipment we need at every step along the way, simply put, is not “nice to have”, it’s a critical requirement.
Systems (or procedures/processes) are the way we remain consistent and stay ahead of most potential surprises that crop up through the course of a project. From the Estimate, through the Design/Engineering processes, and onward through Production and Quality, our systems ensure we do what we say we’re going to do, meanwhile allowing all our employees to work in a lower stress environment, leading to employee satisfaction and retainage. Also, when our customers take note of our Systems, it often brings relief that their projects will be managed professionally, with all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed.
Organization (in this context) is the primary building block for a System. A System cannot function properly without Organization; the better the Organization, the better the Systems.
Systems and Organization empower employees to do their jobs consistently and safely while under reduced stress of many of the unknowns. They almost always lead to better quality work from all corners and a strong positive customer experience.
