I’ve just started painting our lunchroom. Revamping it after years of hard use.
It’s amazing how many moving parts there are at a factory. The constant motions, change, fixing, rebuilding, but the community of it, remains the same forever.
Sure like every relationship, it has its ups and downs, hard times and good.
It helps when something comes along and humbles you. Waking you up from the everyday repetitive loop you can linger in.
Last week, we had a spontaneous combustion fire here at “the mill,” our factory and home to more than fifty employees.
The event surely humbled and awoke us.
We were very fortunate, walking away with minimal damage.
Life can remind you in harsh and subtle ways that in fact it can end or change at any moment.
On that dreaded Sunday night, anxiously racing over, we found several employees coming in at different times to help.
No time cards clocked, working into the late hours of the night only to be back Monday morning, just a few short hours later.
This week we wish to thank all of our employees for their dedication to Manchester Wood. Also to all manufacturing companies in America who fight everyday to survive in our country.
To the hardworking and downtrodden, your fellow man thanks you.
Also to our Mother Earth for giving us such amazing resources!
