Lundgren's monthly letter October 2018 - everything in forging and glass

Are you ready for the new Lundgrens?

Right now we are on an exciting and necessary journey. In 2017/18, we hired a bunch of new project managers to cope with the high pressure and upcoming retirements. Our most experienced project managers will retire in the coming year and invaluable knowledge will disappear. The new project managers are well on their way into the match, but it takes time to become a full-fledged project manager with an established customer contact network. Tough challenges and there are many pieces of the puzzle that will fit in for us to reach our goals. Right now there is a big focus on sales. Another challenge is to create a culture of collaboration where we develop team players who collaborate and further develop in the direction of the set goals. We have all the experiences and knowledge that we can share and that others can benefit and enjoy. With effective teamwork where everyone cooperates and shares the responsibility, we will succeed.

Where should I turn?

During the project managers' strategy day, we formed a sales team. The teams also became responsible for the following priority areas:

  • PURCHASEEmpty, Bosse, David and Mauricio
  • SALE Thomas, Gert and Rizwan
  • PRODUCTIONJussi, Adam, Jurgita and Yosef
  • KMARichard, Micke and Torgny
  • HRJohanna, Riyam and Yosef

This is where you should primarily turn to questions, wishes, etc.

What a welded gang!

For the second year in a row went gula team on a team trip together. This time it was off to Athens. Good cooperation and a good work climate is not something that does itself. It is something we create together. And, it worked gula team very good with! By daring to offer themselves, they have gotten to know each other. This in turn has led to better cooperation and that they can solve difficult tasks together. This can be seen in the results of the forging jobs. But above all, they are a close-knit gang who have fun together!

The improvement factory - 5 S

5 S got a fresh start after some changes in the groups. Congratulations to the big workshop that became the 5 S-winner of the month with as many as 10 improvements!

More focus on work environment

Your safety is always number one and the most important thing of all is that you come home safe and sound. No direct remarks were observed during the latest safety round at the workshop. However, we need to become better at making risk assessments in the projects. A more active and systematic work environment work is needed in the daily work. We will therefore start each 5 S meeting by going through the past week (oh, oh, note), make a quick and easy risk assessment and see what we can do in the groups to improve safety and the working environment.

We will appoint another representative (blacksmith or fitter) to the work environment group / safety committee.

Economy news

The total turnover for Lundgrens & Eddings Smide pointed to SEK 70 million at the end of the month. Eddings continued to deliver a good result with a doubled turnover compared with the previous year.
