I had the privilege of visiting VIBCO Vibrators this week in Wyoming, Rhode Island. Straight from the VIBCO website homepage:
We’re the Expert Vibrator Guys! We create value by manufacturing high-quality, low maintenance industrial vibrators and construction vibrators; offering world-class technical support and personalized service; and innovating to ensure that you have access to the best possible industrial vibrators, construction vibrators, and other vibratory solutions. VIBCO is the Original Silent Turbine Vibrator.
One of the highlights of my visit was sharing some of my Wiremold background and discussing lean moonshine with Karl Wadensten, VIBCO President, on the Lean Nation Radio Show. I mentioned to Karl during the broadcast that being on the radio show was on my ‘lean bucket list’. I’m grateful to VIBCO’s Linda Kleineberg for the invite…I had a blast.
VIBCO is a shining example of a company that has successfully maneuvered over the ’employee engagement’ hurdle by involving 100% of the employees in lean efforts with an amazing commitment to their ‘True North’.
