Q2 - 2018 Newletter

Hi,there

20180709_150153

From the President: We're All Moved In!

We’ve got some new play space finally!  Completion of the Phase I office addition last month has been exciting and rewarding to put the finishing touches on an almost year-long project.  It’s turned out nicer than I had hoped and I think gives our heavy thinkers a more comfortable and collaborative workspace.  We’re midway into the Phase II plant expansion that is slated to be done this fall.  I’m reminded again how much fun it is to watch a bunch of great people erect a building.  It’s a  lot like observing one of our build projects grow from a naked frame to slinging product thru it. Cool! (Click the dots below to read more.)

The Quality management team is continuing to make great strides in revamping our system.  It’s been exciting to witness the comprehensive autopsy and examination of each of our processes.  The gang is doing well in challenging our flow of information for efficiency, accuracy, and value.  The team still has much more work to do in completing this intensive review and alignment but they’ve made good strides in completing one audit along with many process flow documents and forms.

I’m very excited to see that our efforts to focus on and expand our Contract Manufacturing services is paying dividends.  Two clients that have placed their trust in NuTec to manufacture and assemble their end products continue to expand their relationship with NuTec.  We’ve done well at delivering their electro-mechanical assemblies to spec and building their trust in our ability to manage inventory, scheduling and of course costs.  We’re becoming well versed in the nuances and burden of onboarding a new contract build and the subsequent ongoing effort to wring manufacturing costs from each repetitive build.  We’ll be continuing to align our marketing efforts to attract new clients with a need for a contract partner.

In a couple weeks, August 1st will mark NuTec’s 35th anniversary.  We’re going to celebrate that evening with our annual Barbeque picnic with friends and family.  I’ve been kicking around here in some capacity for all 35 years and every year at this time I’m humbled to think of all the folks past and present that have contributed to the 1000’s of projects passing thru our doors.  From our generous customers willing to bring us their programs, our banking partners and vendors to all the awesomely talented co-workers that have sacrificed long hours away from family to deliver the goods – Thank You for doing it!

Self-Powered Wireless Sensors

Self-powered wireless sensors that harvesting environmental energy are an answer to two key problems for industrial use. The majority of sensors in industrial applications are hard-wired and can't be used with moving parts. Also, it’s difficult to use them in sealed environments. Although wireless sensors are a good alternative, powering them is an issue. Batteries are used, but they must be carefully monitored and replaced periodically.
