Lundgren AB's monthly letter September 2018 - everything in forging & glass

Now we are going to build motorcycle ambulances in Burundi!

Eezer is a project that is close to our hearts. In May, Lundgren visited Smide Olgulului Health Center on the border with Tanzania together with the Eezer Initiative. It was a very moving moment. Many in the village had put on their finest clothes and jewelry and walked miles to meet us. They were expectant, singing, dancing, giving speeches and blessing us. Their maternity clinic was a new and modern clinic (by African standards) where about 9 children per month were born. Nearly 2,000 children are born in the area every year. There was no means of transport to get to the clinic. Many therefore chose to give birth at home because it was too far to walk and there were many dangerous animals along the way. Some mothers bled… When we were there, I felt strongly that an Eezer ambulance could make a difference. And, this summer they got an Eezer !!! In September, Eezer visited Olgulului on his follow-up trip. The motorcycle ambulance had then been used for 26 patients in two months, many of whom were on their way to the clinic to give birth. It warmed my heart when I saw pictures from the visit where I could see the joy in their eyes. This is for real - Eezer's motorcycle ambulances make a difference and save lives in the African countryside. Think that we at Lundgren's are part of this! There is an enormous strength if we can become even more people who become involved in Eezer.

Elvis and Richard should have a lot of credit going to Burundi in October to assemble ambulances on site. What brave heroes! They will take with them the wagon parts that our blacksmiths made this spring.

The roads to the goal - all in forging and glass

In September, it was finally time for the project managers' strategy day with a focus on the future. In a fantastic archipelago environment on Söderarm we laid out strategies for how to approach the goal. There were many creative discussions where we brainstormed different ideas about how we should work with sales, purchasing, production, KMA and HR. We formed sales teams. At the next general meeting, the groups will tell what is going on.

Economy news

In September, we had to struggle with invoicing. Jurgita did a fantastic job of collecting unpaid invoices. July and August were tough months where, among other things, the summer heat hit sales and earnings. BUT, the year is not over yet and we have the three most important months ahead of us. We will fight to increase sales within forge, glass and metal sections, furnishings and servicesmide.

Seller of the month

Even though sales fell during the summer months, it was an order party at our last general meeting. The order bell rang for glass walls, forging jobs, diversions, interior forging, wine rack mm

Congratulations Yosef and Torgny who became the seller of the month in September! Yosef received an order for just over SEK 1 million when he sold more metal glass batches NKV with IN3PRENÖR as customer. The project starts in November and should be ready by the end of January. Torgny received an exciting project with an order value of SEK 1.8 million. He sold steel stairs, wrought iron railings and supplementary wrought iron to FSG Entreprenad AB.
