Adam Randall Earns Award for His Hard Work & Commitment to FWE 

Adam RandallPlease join us in congratulating Adam Randall who is the next recipient of the Extra Mile Award!

Adam has taken on much more of a leadership role in Engineering over the last year.  In addition to designing, reviewing orders, training employees and being the “keeper” of our PDM software, he has made time to start automating our design processes.  He is developing a process that will dramatically reduce the time required for design.  For example, it will enable us to design a standard door by simply entering the door’s dimensions.  His efforts to improve efficiency and reduce cost deserve recognition.

Keep up the good work, Adam!

Here at F.W.E. we have quite the mix of employees. Annette not only does her job very well, but she is quite the support person for any and all that ask for her help. This includes helping with insurance problems, legal problems, helping with shop floor, putting in for vacation, finding a place to live. You name it she will help you get it.

She does not boast about extending her assistance to others, we believe it’s just her nature and the ones she has helped truly appreciate it. We feel a little recognition goes a long way and she deserves a pat on the back for all she does.

Please help us congratulate Annette on her award!

Inventory has come and gone.  2015 inventory was by the smoothest inventory to date.  Much of this was due to the huge effort put in by Chris Malo and his inventory team to have things ready to go.

From the time Chris comes in our door every morning until he leaves each evening, he never stops working.  It is his daily responsibilities to make sure materials are stored, counted and distributed accurately so that the production process  can begin and move along as smooth as possible.

Please join us in thanking Chris – you make a positive difference for FWE every day of the week.
