Teaching Educators and Kids about Opportunities

Teaching Educators and Kids about Opportunities

It’s rewarding to watch people grow and succeed in your
organization. We’re fortunate to have some highly engaged young people
on our professional welding team coming right out of high school,
learning new trade skills as they go. We have great career positions
open for young people, and as a manufacturer, we a far from alone!

TEACHING EDUCATORS ABOUT CAREERS IN MANUFACTURING

Higher education comes in many different forms and in some cases, it
pays you while you receive it!
Technical vocational careers open worlds of opportunities to all kinds
of people, most often at an early age. These jobs provide
organizational experience and a lucrative financial head start over
other professional career paths that put people in a deep debt hole
coming out of college. So why aren’t parents, teachers and
young people more aware of the highly rewarding career paths in making
and building useful things, i.e. manufacturing?
We need to challenge the conventional wisdom of getting a 4-year
college degree or higher before entering the full-time workforce as
the best path. Educators often tend to push more education as the best
career-building solution but that simply does not work for many kids
and in some cases sets them back financially as well as
experientially.
Young people who choose continuing education over “higher education” are living productive and happy lives. You can learn more about this and see a fine example of what we’re talking about by clicking to read the short & sweet article.

NEWS FROM THE HOME FRONT.
As we continue implementing the modernization of our facilities, we’re
very excited about near-term plans to build a significant solar panel
array on our roofs. Estimates indicate this will supply enough energy
to power our operations. We’ll be sharing more details about this
advanced sustainability initiative in future news updates. Please stay
tuned!

The Benefits of Prioritizing Your Supply Chain Relationships

In light of the recent tariff announcements on steel and aluminum, we think it’s vitally important to focus on supplier relationships and managing your materials resources with foresight.

The Benefits of Prioritizing Your Supply Chain Relationships

Is your industry facing changes and challenges? The strength of your relationships will help you pull through successfully. A strong and reliable machining-fabrication supply chain is dependent on the supplier being able to manage multiple phases and elements of your project such as:

  • Assessment – Review and understand customer requirements and goals, and current resources.

  • Planning and Strategy – Ensure the design meets your requirements and is workable throughout the entire manufacturing process.

  • Implementation – Efficiently manage production, quality control and change management, and delivery of product deliverables.

Supplier improvement and optimization is a process we’ve been working on for decades which has been paying off in many ways including materials reliability and speed of finished goods to market. Please click to the full article on Forging Strong Supply Chain Partnerships


Learning What’s Important from Manufacturing Engineers

This past February 21st, our company had the pleasure of hosting a smart and inquisitive group of engineers from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), Southern New Hampshire Chapter No. 327 for a plant tour. We learned some valuable insights from these men and women, and wow, did they ask some good questions!Learning what’s important to the engineering community, not only technologically, but also from a service and support perspective, is highly valued and appreciated by the GMFCo team.

We were pleased to receive a follow-up from SME indicating that members who attended the tour were impressed and took away an additional understanding of precision manufacturing technologies and processes. Rick Atkinson, Secretary of the local SME chapter noted, “…we are certain your ability to manufacture such a wide variety of products, and with such precision and attention to detail, will continue to provide you with much growth and success.”  Likewise, we thank Rick and the entire group from SME – Southern NH for visiting our plant and engaging us in some great discussions.
