The D.L. Martin Co. recognizes Derrick MacDowall as Employee of the Month for November. Derrick lives in Harrisonville and has been with the company for 10 years. He is an Inspector in the Quality Assurance Department.
To eliminate frequent scrap due to welding pit ladders backwards, Derrick suggested adding 2 locating pins to the fixture to ensure they cannot be welded backwards. In addition, to eliminate stripping screws and breaking Phillips head screwdriver bits when assembling platforms, a #3 bit that better fits the head of the screws is now being used.
The company also recognizes Owen Slates for his suggestion implemented through the company’s Continual Improvement Program in November.
