MONTHLY LETTER DECEMBER 2020 - Everything in forging & glass

Lamparmatur

The year is coming to an end and with a few glimpses and other important events we are going to the end of the year monthly letter summarize the past year. Just 2020 has without a doubt been a strange year that offered something that was unexpected. We had to adapt to new circumstances in order to continue to conduct our business as normally as possible. 

Some flashes of light

We started the year by moving into ours New facilities in Bromma. It is not often you get the opportunity to build a new forging workshop, which has been very fun! We thrive! Another flash of light was spring course activities which grew with as much as 160 % despite prevailing circumstances. We also went in as partner in a sheet metal & forging company in Norrköping. Our hope is that we together with The brothers Edding's Forging will become a strong player in the market and deliver world-class forging and glass! 

To be involved and make a difference

Eezer is a project that is close to our hearts. Just before the pandemic broke out, there was a follow-up trip to Kenya. Since then, for obvious reasons, there has been a bit of silence. For that very reason, it felt extra good to end the year with that support music helpNo one should be left without care. By competing for an adventure trip to Kenya, we contributed SEK 43,400 in just over a day. For those of you who missed when the zealous Lars Klingsbo was in the program and told if the Burundi project can see it here. In 2021, we hope to be able to send a container down to Burundi with materials to start production of 50 crews. All to reduce maternal mortality in Africa with the help of motorcycle ambulances.

How hard can it be?

Our vision is to have fun when we create sustainable forging & world-class glass. To get an idea of where we are, we did an exercise. Divided into groups, we would cross a line at the same time. An exercise that seems simple but that quickly turns out to be difficult. The exercise highlights the importance of a common goal, communication, leadership, planning and problem solving. Just like in our job. And surely it's a challenge to get all the pieces in place? 

My strengths, your strengths - how do we complement each other?

Community is important for our success. That is why we are happy that we have such a wonderful group of skilled blacksmiths and project managers with different strengths, skills and experiences. To strengthen the community, it is important that we get to know each other better. This is so that we can gain an increased understanding of each other in different situations and how we can complement each other. It is not until we are welded together that we get a common will to reach the goal. When the we-feeling is strengthened, we also have more fun at work. It creates good conditions for good performance and a commitment that makes us unbeatable. 

To boost the team spirit

To build strong teams, we will focus on communication, roles and responsibilities linked to Lundgren's goals and vision. We will invent fun activities, tease each other, give feedback, look up and celebrate success. And we long until we can go on team trips again. But as long as the pandemic continues, we must adapt to the prevailing circumstances and make the best we can of the situation. Please come with suggestions!

We welcome six new employees! 

We want to welcome our new employees! Paddy recently joined us. A more skilled TIG welder you get to look for! Stefan also started his internship. He went one welding course in MMA welding this spring, got more taste and now wants to learn the profession. Great fun! We have also strengthened our strength with Niclas, who has extensive experience as a project manager in forging. And next week Jussi will make a comeback to take on a smaller forging job. In Norrköping, we welcome Pelle, who is starting as a project manager. Finally, the blacksmith Deividas will soon start Eddings. In other words, we have a strong squad that will deliver world-class forging and glass! And we want to be even more in Stockholm and Norrköping. So check out ours Available positions .  

Autumn cosiness

Cozy evenings at home feel right this fall. Do not miss our unbeatable price pizza steel so you can maximize the autumn coziness with a homemade pizza as good as in a restaurant! 

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

2020-09 Monthly newsletter September 2020 - everything in forging & glass

This year's strategy day at the archipelago pearl Idöborg was a highlight and also a bit of a thriller out on the lake. 

Our project managers met recently Idöborg to discuss vision, goals and strategy. We exchanged experiences between the companies and got to know each other, new and old colleagues.

That we have a shared vision and work towards the same goal is important for us to be able to do successful business. This leads to a greater commitment, a stronger community and an increased shared responsibility for us to achieve our goals. 

Having fun when we create sustainable forging & world-class glass! 

We look ahead and focus on opportunities for increased growth and better profitability. Here are some points we will work on on the way there:

  • COMMUNITYteamwork makes the dream work! Different strengths, behaviors, skills and experiences lead to success. Getting to know each other strengthens the we-feeling and results in us working better together to achieve the goals. But, above all, the job becomes more fun! 
  • SATISFIED PEOPLE - when we get to do what we think is fun and skilled at, we become the most productive and efficient. Passion in turn brings joy. So if we take advantage of the will and expertise that exists, we can deliver world-class forging & glass. We can also expand the range of goods and services for today's and tomorrow's needs. 
  • CREATE SOLUTIONS - with a happy mood, we will take on challenges and take responsibility for our own and the business's situation. It is allowed to make mistakes! We learn and find new opportunities to get better. If we have a positive attitude, look up and see new opportunities, we will solve most things.
  • QUALITY AND SUSTAINABILITY - our ambition is to deliver good quality in efficient production. We will also work actively for increased consideration for the environment and reduced climate impact through climate-smart solutions and recycling. 

When the gang's team spirit was put to the test

To further strengthen the team spirit, we broke off with a joint kayaking. Some hesitated but eventually followed. It all started well with great kayaking in a beautiful archipelago environment and radiant sun. Then it suddenly blew up and everything changed from peaceful paddling to chaos.

It was tough to get ahead in the waves and a big challenge to keep the group together. Soon one of the participants overturned with his "steady" kayak while another got stuck on a cliff. Shortly afterwards, he too overturned in the cold water. The group's ability to work together and team spirit were put to the test. In the end, with the help of the guide and pepper from the group, they managed to get back in emptied kayaks and paddle on towards the goal, wet and frozen. Ruggedly nice to come ashore and I do not think that a hot sauna and a beer can sit as nicely at some point as after this trip.

What a fighting spirit

I was taken by the fighting spirit in the group. Seeing their ability to solve new situations and work together towards the goal was impressive. Together we will be unbeatable! 

PS Maximize the feeling of autumn coziness with a good pizza with the help of our unbeatable pizza steel for the perfect pizza!

Monthly letter May 2020 - everything in forging & glass

How does the coronavirus affect us?

So far, we have been relatively spared from the coronavirus and its effects. We have been able to conduct our business as usual based on the guidelines of the responsible authorities. Only a few smaller projects have been postponed to the future. Despite a high absence, we have managed to carry out our projects on time and the demand for our services within forge and glass has been great despite the crisis. 

But we are likely to be affected in the long run, the question is just how? To what extent and in what way will it be built in the future? Will projects be postponed to the future due to the state's finances becoming more strained? Or will it invest in infrastructure? The questions are many and we do not know what is to come. We have left what was once to land in a new unknown place. During the journey, we must focus on selling, collaborating and looking up to find new ways. It is important that we face difficulties with a happy mood instead of complaining or depressing. Because if we have a positive attitude, expect something good and look ahead, we have a better chance of success! 

Lost sales

The fact that we are behind with the sale has nothing to do with the coronavirus, but it is a situation that we have put ourselves in. But with our slim, awesome staff, we are concentrating on interesting business and it feels like we are heading in the right direction. It bounces a little here and there and soon it will come loose. Then we will instead have too much to do but it is a luxury problem that is more fun to solve!

Maintenance and repairs will always be needed. So no matter what the effects of the corona crisis in the future, we should take action now service forging in greater occurence. We have received two framework agreements and it feels great! 

Bake pizza like a pro!

Right now you can buy ours pizza steel for only SEK 344! With the pizza steel, you can bake pizza in an ordinary young person as well as in a restaurant! In just a few minutes you can bake pizza, soft cakes and flatbread. The pizza steel can also be used on the outdoor grill to fry fish, vegetables and meat. Great for summer barbecue evenings! The pizza steel is available for purchase this spring webshop.

Not just a memory

We will be able to use our old premises in Sumpan another time. If you have any idea what we can use it for, we want you get in touch

The holidays are approaching

Now we are entering a hectic time and there is a lot we have to catch up with before the holidays begin. This summer, we will continue with, among other things the reconstruction of the Fridhemsplan metro station, hold a four-week welding course for future drilling technicians, install glass sections, etc. Many have postponed their holidays due to changed travel plans, so so far we have capacity over this summer. Welcome with your inquiry

Monthly newsletter April 2020 - everything in forging & glass

We are in a time of uncertainty, worry and change. And, how well you work under the prevailing circumstances! To cope with high absenteeism and challenges, we help each other. Therefore, we can continue to manufacture and assemble metal glass sections on the assembly line, do hearses, pizza steel, wrought iron railings and much more. 

We'll get through this together

We'll get through this and land the plane without crashing. This means that we must maintain the focus on sales, cooperate and be prepared to quickly solve what is not going as we have intended. We should face difficulties in a good mood instead of complaining or depressing. If we have a positive attitude, expect something good and look ahead, we have a better chance of success! We will continue to follow the advice and prompts from the responsible authorities and, based on this, conduct our business as normally as possible.

Create order in the forging workshop

Imagine that you go into the workshop and feel tagged and full of ideas how to do your job. You will immediately find everything you need, the machines are ready to use and you just have to get started!

An organized workshop makes the work both fun and efficient. The more order and order we have in the workshop, the easier it will be to find what we are looking for. It creates well-being and we save time! We can work more efficiently in a safer work environment with less conflict, etc. I am convinced that no one wants to start the day by cleaning for someone else or looking for drawings, materials, keys, tools, etc. in the nooks and crannies.

How do we get there?

Using 5 Smethod, we can get order and find out in the workshop. We will: 

  1. SORT - throw everything away unnecessarily! Only what is needed for the daily work may remain. 
  2. SYSTEMATIZE - arrange all things and all equipment according to how often they are used. Mark with labels, markings on the floor, etc. Every thing should have its place! 
  3. CLEAN - agree on a suitable cleaning level - the workplace must be ready for use! That we agree reduces the source of conflicts.
  4. STANDARDIZE Maintain order and make the cleaning and ongoing maintenance work.
  5. CREATE HABIT - everyone should continue with the daily cleaning, but to move forward we need to work with constant improvements.

5 S is thus more than just cleaning. Now we will together take 5 S to the next level. So up with the 5 S-boards, make an action plan and get started in the groups!  

We wish you a nice Walpurgis weekend!

Monthly letter March 2020 - everything in forging & glass

Everyone is affected by the spread of the coronavirus, so are we. Right now it feels like we are on a plane on our way to an unknown destination. We are high in the air and on board there are both fear of flying and calm passengers. The plane sounds more than usual and we are exposed to turbulence and unpleasant impressions. Air pits cause the plane to suddenly sink and this is something that can be experienced as unpleasant even for those who are not afraid of flying. A feeling that now we are crashing we can suddenly appear… 

But, we must continue to fly and focus on the goal even if conditions change rapidly. Adapting quickly to prevailing circumstances is important. We may have to change flight altitude or fly around an area to cope with unforeseen turbulence. The goal is still for the plane to land without crashing! 

Today we do not know what consequences the corona pandemic will have. The goal is for us to get through this turbulent time and the challenges we face. Cooperation and a strong community are more important than ever right now. Without it, it will be difficult to perform forge and glass world class! 

Our course activities continue!

The interest in learning to weld and build their own objects in wrought iron continues despite the corona crisis. We will therefore continue to give everyone who is healthy the opportunity to learn welding. So check out our extended course offerings and sign up for a welding course!

TIG welding beginners

No one wants to clean up after someone else 

5 S is a forum where everyone is involved in creating order and order in our forging workshop. Now we have the most important piece left. Namely, to make work a routine in everyday life. It is not until it becomes unnatural to leave one's workplace in a state other than the very best that we know we have succeeded. It should be obvious to follow the agreements we come to. After Easter, we will divide everyone into groups with different areas of responsibility and continue working on the final steps 5 S.  

  1. Sort
  2. Structure
  3. Clean
  4. Standardize
  5. Create a habit

All for an even better and safer workplace with higher well-being and better profitability!

Now we're in place

I want to start by thanking the moving team for a fantastic job because now we are finally in place in the new forging workshop at Tornväktargränd in Bromma. It feels good when the machines run hot and a wonderful mix of music is played in the speakers when our skilled blacksmiths conjure up unique forging products. 

It is not often you get the opportunity to build a new forging workshop, which has been fantastic fun. Our new forging workshop has many advantages, including the surface where there is an opportunity to grow and create a good and pleasant working environment. It also feels good that we are centrally located and can continue to provide fast service within forge & glass to our costumers!  

Now we will speed up sales 

We face (as always) a number of challenges. Next we need to speed up sales. Selling is not always easy but full of challenges. Either we can choose to blame yours and hers or we stop apologizing and drive on because it is full of interesting business. Peter and Martin feel tagged for the task of driving sales forward. Here are five tips on how we can speed up our sales: 

  • Set aside time. Nothing is more important than selling. No but without realizing that your sales time is important!
  • Be quick. Get in touch with the customer quickly, leave quick quotes, give quick feedback, give fast deliveries, etc. No one likes to wait!
  • Build relationships. People want to do business with people and not with companies. So take good care of our customers at all levels!
  • Solve problems. Find out what the customer needs help with and solve it! 
  • Exceed expectations. To retain the customers we already have exceed their expectations. If they are satisfied, they will buy more and provide good references. 

Remember that no one is the best at everything, so exchange experiences and lessons, pep and help each other with the challenges that arise. Together we have lots of knowledge and strengths that allow us to deliver world-class forging and glass. Everything from beams and steel stairs to glass sections and shelf brackets. In other words, small and large. We are experts in special forging, something that others in the industry find difficult to perform. It is a privilege that we have so many skilled blacksmiths! So what do you say, do you accept the challenge?

Great interest in welding

The interest in learning to weld is great, so we have expanded the range of courses with, among other things, metal handicraft, welding evenings and weekend courses. For five years, our experienced blacksmiths have trained in welding and hundreds of course participants have received approved welding tests. So check out ours welding courses and take the chance and try something new either as a course participant or course leader. 

Nice weekend!
