Made in America. Any Way You Like It.

A couple of decades ago “Made in the USA” was a rally cry. While businesses moved production facilities overseas for cheap labor and lax environment laws, the American manufacturing worker was turning into an extinct species. One after another, companies moved operations out of the country and ruined our reputation as a world leader in manufacturing.
Now it seems like the majority of American made products are produced by small businesses. And now, more than any other time in our history, it so important to make sure these businesses thrive. The U.S. unemployment numbers alone is proof that these companies need your support to keep Americans working.
When these American manufacturers succeed, we all succeed. Money stays here in the U.S., workers are able to spend money which helps the economy. If you’re like our company, which manufactures machines used for other manufacturing facilities, you know that the work you produce is part of a bigger wheel that helps move this country. I know when I sell a Reversible Boom Crane, that machine is going somewhere to build more, to produce more; that machine is going somewhere to keep someone working. So you see when we are producing, America is producing, and there is no better feeling to know that your company is not part of the problem, but part of the solution.
For over 50 years Air Technical Industries has and always will build our products right here in Mentor, Ohio, and we are so very proud of that.

What is the price of Safety and Efficiency?

A client let me know last week that they could not purchase a crane to preform a daily task of moving manufactured doors from one station to a packaging station. because they didn’t expect to pay the amount of the quoted crane, which was $5154.00.
Its a shame cost sometimes comes before efficiency and safety, but it is a reality that I deal with all the time.
The one argument I would use for spending the money on a piece of needed equipment is the price of the doors being handled and the amount of workers needed to preform the task.
Lets say we reduce the amount of workers just from 2 people to 1.
Based on a $12.00 an hour workers rate you save would save $96.00 a day on payroll.
That is a $24,960 savings in one year to preform that task. If you do not damage doors anymore doing the task, you will increase efficiency and decrease costs even more!
And if you improve safety, you get the benefits I just stated plus, improved moral, which if you ask any shop supervisor, is PRICELESS!
Add all that together and you will get your money back for the amount of the crane within the first 3 MONTHS!
Something that the boss should consider.
