SHOP SHUTDOWN

On behalf of Thompson fab we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude and appreciation to all of our customers, YOU made 2017 another record year.  As the year draws to an end we look forward to gearing up for 2018 and all the challenges it will bring. As always we pride ourselves in providing you with a top quality product and second to none customer service. In order to make that happen and be ready for the 2018 rush we conducted a two week plant shutdown, this year’s dates were scheduled November 6th – November 17th. We hate stopping production and appreciate your understanding but we know this will be a huge part of the 2018 success. During that time we utilized our LEAN thinking to fix and clean, we didn’t pack up and take a 2 week vacation.  Instead we took everything apart both in the shop and offices, moved everything to be able clean and repair whatever was broken or needed adjusted. The two week process of extensive cleaning and repair is a necessary evil that will ensure all departments will be working efficiently and running at 100 percent. We pride ourselves in continuous improvement and feel confident looking to the New Year.

 You can see from the photos of the before, during and after that nothing was left untouched! We also cleaned and decluttered the entire office and gave the employee lunch room a complete makeover.  Color coordinated the shop for safety and to be able to operate at a much better pace.
