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.
