With 82 employees working three shifts, it has taken the New Madison plant six years to hit this mark. Brad Gotts, president of FPE, pointed out the plant is establishing a great trend of quality and safety. Approximately one month ago Gotts was on-hand to celebrate an award presented by Honda to the company.
Karen Thompson, HR director for FPE, said, “This is by far one of the greatest achievements this organization has achieved. This is a benchmark for our organization.”
Also on-hand to offer congratulations was Larry Jutte, representative of Ernie Green Industries. “We now have 10 companies and one plant stands out above them all – New Madison. I have seen hundreds and hundreds of plants and very few I would consider world class. Those that I would (consider world class) had great safety records,” he said.
In addition to a plaque recognizing the accomplishment, employees were treated to lunch and given t-shirts and duffel bags.
