October 25, 2012 - Globe Products Announces Acquisition of New Stamping Machine
Globe Products Co. is proud to announce it has acquired a new 12-station stamping machine, adding to its overall capacity and ensuring its customers will continue to get outstanding service at low prices. Globe Products Co., a leader in manufacturing high quality ferrules and eyelets, as well as other deep draw stampings for 31 years, purchased the new stamping machine in late May and the new equipment will enable the company to diversify its deep draw capabilities, ensuring Globe's continued competitiveness and leadership in the industry. "This machine gives us more capacity," said Kevin Lewis, Globe's general manager. "It can take some workload off our other machines, and allow us to run larger parts." The new stamping machine also can make shapes and sizes that Globe previously hadn't been able to do, and Lewis believes it "could potentially open up additional business for us." The machine will also be a benefit to Globe's current customers, as it will cut down on lead time, and it will save the company money by allowing it to get projects done quicker. "It's another step forward for us," Lewis said. Globe Products Co., founded in 1981, specializes in producing hose ferrules for the automotive industry, hydraulic hose manufacturers, and also has clients in the medical field and plumbing industry.
October 2012 - Globe Products Shows Support and Goes "Pink"
What initially started out as pink out for the local Friday football game turned into more for the employees of Globe Products Co.
October is known as Breast Cancer Awareness month. The local cities promote this awareness by pink out events.
Globes office employees decided to show their support also by going pink. Employees, Jennifer Huddle, Lupe Butler, Shannon Seymour, Tammy Goad, & Jean Slease, wore pink shirts, pink shoes, pink accessories, and/or had pink hair.
While for some the pink hair was a wig or spray on hair color, one employee took it a step further. Jennifer Huddle, Globes Office Manager, bleached and dyed her hair to achieve the bright pink color.
In addition to the pink out, pink ribbons were displayed on the employee bulletin board to honor loved ones who have battled cancer and remember loved ones whove lost their battle to cancer.
Globes office ladies have started thinking of ideas on how to raise awareness and funds within the company for next year.
