Thanks A Million

revised

There is no doubt that thoughts of sweet potato casserole, turkey, dressing and all the trimmings preoccupy approximately 98% of our brain power during the week of Thanksgiving. However, when it is finally time to sit down and chow down… what is it that comes to mind as the reason to give thanks?  My mind started to wander, thinking about all of the obvious answers… family, friends, pets, hobbies, the delicious meal we get to enjoy… and then timed to perfection, an unsuspecting email was delivered to my inbox.

Kyle is a Sales Representative for Vulcan, based in Texas. He had just returned home from Sales Week which is hosted once a year at our home base in Foley, Alabama. For Kyle, the week was filled with sales planning, presentations, tours of upgrades to our manufacturing facility, training and most important of all… time to interact with his co-workers which he spends a large majority of his day emailing and calling.

We all know that work relationships can be challenging at times, but at the end of the day, we must remember that we are all working together to accomplish the same goal. We can choose to have a positive or negative attitude to combat whatever challenges come our way, however, today I am truly thankful for Kyle Potts and his regards that meant so much to all that received his email. This short, heartfelt note made the incredible people I work with shoot to the top of my “thankful” list.

We wish all of our customers, vendors, and employees a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday!

Vulcan Aluminum Renovation Complete!

revised

The renovation of Vulcan’s oldest production facility is now complete! Built in 1968, this building was in need of several cosmetic updates. Included in the renovation was a re-design of the employee entrance which included improved space planning and a widened side walk, as well as a new break room and bathrooms. The size of the break room has been doubled by removing an existing wall, allowing for much more elbow room during high-traffic times of break and lunch. Two new refrigerators were also purchased to allow for more cold storage space. A 70” LED monitor was also purchased and mounted in the break room to aid in communicating safety training and company announcements. All new plumbing, lighting and flooring was installed, while walls were also painted for a more modern feel.

A new conference room was also created inside the office area. This facility was the only one on Vulcan’s campus that did not have a meeting space such as this, so the sales team is extremely excited about having a space to congregate and meet with customers.

This renovation has been a breath of fresh air for the employees of Vulcan Aluminum and everyone has been diligent about keeping these new areas clean and tidy.  All employees definitely appreciate the investment Vulcan made in them!
