Jeanie Waara started her Scotchman career on November 6, 1995. She was hired to fulfill Scotchman’s printing needs. At that time, we printed everything in-house except our product catalogs. Jeanie was in charge of printing (and assembling) every operator manual, price list, warranty card, safety data sheet, plus numerous other documents. She was printing between 1.5 to 2 million sheets of paper annually, with some years being well over two million pieces! It was definitely a full-time job and one she did very well for 23 years.
Automation is the best assistant when it comes to making the most of your employees' time on the shop floor. We’re not talking about replacing employees – but rather providing them with a form of aid that will boost your shop’s productivity, maximize efficiency, & decrease operator error and waste. Adding value to your shop with automation is an investment with the goal of improving business and facilitating growth.
No one succeeds in business (or in life, for that matter) without the support from others. All too often they go unrecognized, but their influence remains nonetheless vital. Loyal and dedicated employees are the foundation to any successful company.
Well, it’s official – John Heltzel retired and left us after 40 years of employment at Scotchman. It is different around here now without John sitting at his desk... a little bit lonely even. Thursday afternoon we shut off the phones and celebrated John, his 40 years of service here, and his retirement, but yesterday it was real because his chair sat vacant. John has been a friendly face and an extremely knowledgable & important asset to our customer service department for over 35 years -- He will definitely be missed around here!

Manufacturing Day is a growing grassroots movement of manufacturers dedicated to overcoming the shared challenges facing manufacturers today. The most pressing issue is a gap in skilled labor. Manufacturers’ ability to address this issue has been hindered by the public perception that careers in manufacturing are undesirable and by the lack of sufficient preparatory education. Both of these problems stem from a lack of understanding of present-day manufacturing environments, which are highly technical.
People in general are always looking for ways to improve the things we do every day by making them easier and more efficient...today's technology makes this possible. From online shopping, to FaceTiming a friend halfway across the world, advancements in technology impact nearly every aspect of our lives. Technology has also affected manufacturing in ways that were unthinkable just 20 years ago!
Not sure if adding automation is worth it? We’re giving you four benefits of adding automation to your factory and your sawing processes to explain how adding small bits of technology can improve your everyday processes.
