MONTHLY LETTER NOVEMBER 2020 - everything in forging & glass

In our monthly letter November 2020, the month of the past and a little of what is going on are summarized. In these times of canceled meetings and events, it feels even more important.

Be ready for the final sprint

Now we step into a real final sprint before it's time to tie the knot for this year. It's just how exciting it is and the month of December can be absolutely crucial. Projects to be completed. Quotes to go in and exciting deals that we hope we win. To succeed, it is necessary that we do it together.

Here are the project managers' best tips for success:

  • Attendance and commitment - be present and well acquainted with the job to be performed. That is when we can solve problems quickly.
  • Work smart and use the time - plan the job and involve everyone involved so that we can work time- and cost-effectively throughout the working day.
  • Ensure- make sure that everyone understands the task, roles and the goal (time, budget, results). When everyone becomes aware, it is easier to take responsibility.
  • Control and follow-up - keep track of the financial situation.
  • Make sure you have fun - it leads to well-being, better health and that we become happier.

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 .

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 newsletter December 2019 - everything in forging & glass

What do we remember from 2019?

Wow what a year it has been! The parable of a roller coaster is quite apt for the year. Expectantly, you sit in the carriage and it becomes a journey both up and down and with a loop in the middle. When it is at its scariest, a feeling suddenly arises that you want to get off the car, but it is not possible. It goes away and suddenly you are back where it all started and happy that it is over. A fun, exciting, cool or awful experience, depending on who you are.

2019 is a year that I will soon forget with many great challenges that we together have helped to overcome. Here you get some glimpses from the year.

The year began shakily with low sales. It was tougher than we had predicted to succeed with the sale through our investment with new project managers as our old experienced foxes retired. Until we got Lundgren's biggest project of all time. It was an outstanding team that struggled with steel frames and sheet metal cassettes on Fridhemsplan during a very tight schedule this summer. The gang showed that they could solve the task in a good way in time. 

No summer without a summer torment

It was a real push to get us through the liquidity crisis that we ended up in for various reasons. We had to get out of the slump completely icy cold when we saw a glimmer of light. So after a few sleepless nights, we managed to recover the cash and also break records! This meant that we could finance the purchase of our new one forging workshop in Bromma and that the renovation of the premises could begin. In addition, we were in phase with our sales budget! What a thrill!

Other highlights

Another highlight from the year was the follow-up trips Eezer to Kenya. That we get to see the results of Eezer's work on site and that the motorcycle ambulances actually save lives in the African countryside is an indescribable feeling. 

I will also remember the commitment at our 5 S meetings with a focus on moving. Also team travel to Prague and Palma when we put fun in the culture and became even more welded teams etched in the memory. 

Finally

We managed to reach our sales target in 2019 and are generally satisfied with the result. A big thank you to all the staff who make Lundgren's a fun workplace and that we can perform forge & glass world class! We have challenges ahead of us but also great opportunities. If we focus on the right things and benefit from our lessons, we will succeed in achieving our goals also in 2020. The key to success is cooperation and together we are unbeatable. Teamwork makes the dreamwork!

The year in pictures

Every month, a winner is chosen in our competition. Picture of the month The winning entry is published in our monthly newsletter. Here are 12 moments from 2019.
