At Custom Rubber Corp. there are three corporate priorities; Safety, Quality, and Production.  Short, simple, to the point and easy to remember.  These priorities drive the culture and the decision making at Custom Rubber Corp. and help to push the organization forward with continuous improvement in all areas.

Safety is their number one priority, they are always benchmarking and networking with other companies to find ways to improve safety.  After numerous field trips to other facilities to review mill safety, Custom Rubber Corp. has implemented what they believe are the best of the best ideas.  During the plant tour Custom Rubber Corp. will share their journey and tour participants will be able to review the results.

To adhere to their priority of quality they recently installed a vision inspection machine to help competitively inspect some high volume products.  The plant tour event will give participants the ability to learn from their experience and understand what they have found to be the benefits and shortcomings of customized, automated inspection equipment. 

Finally, their production priority is met by utilizing new vision systems on molding machines to improve production rates and protect the tooling assets from damage.  The vision machines automatically check to see that everything is placed correctly in the mold prior to allowing the machine to close. 

These three priorities are discussed and reiterated every day to each shift in the shift start meeting.  This has proven to continue to build a culture of teamwork and excellence and keeps the communication flowing in both directions.
