Greetings to our fabricator partners and other interested readers. It is hard to believe that another quarter is in the books and we are now well into the summer season. I am happy to report that the summer started off with a bang as the month of June turned out to be a record shipping month for our Edenton, NC facility. We truly hope the steady volume continues for us and our fabricator partners!
The Aegis manufacturing team has used the past several months to concentrate on preventive maintenance and fine tuning of our equipment to ensure that we can continue to support our customers with the highest level of quality and service, now and in the future. We are committed to recognizing potential issues and getting them resolved before they become problems that cause machine downtime and missed shipments. We have also recently completed the construction of two additional steel storage buildings to protect our raw material inventory from the elements. (pictured below)
Another area that we have continued to build upon this past quarter is our safety culture. On May 13th, we celebrated our one year accident free anniversary. The entire group remains extremely committed to ensuring each one of our people leaves work each day in the same health condition as they arrive. Safety is the most important part of our daily duties.
The manufacturing team continues to work with the sales and engineering groups on potential product offerings and/or design changes to make our system even more cost effective. We are currently awaiting the arrival of tooling and cutoff dies to begin roll forming our new 2.5” web (25USW) offering. A new die for a revised HD clip is also well into the review process. These capital projects all start and revolve around our desire to offer our fabricator partners the best, most cost effective cold formed steel truss system available.
We hope you have a spectacular summer season and Thank You for your business!
