Spincraft WI: Employee Safety Strides

With Employee safety a foremost priority throughout the Standex businesses, Spincraft WI plant made strides in 2018 with robust and effective expansions to their existing Safety Programs.   Workers attended clinics throughout the year for training in specific areas such as Crane & Lifting, Hearing Conservation, and Proper Lifting.  Other classes covered safety measures relating to Forklift Operations, Fire, Ladder & Work-surfaces training, and more.

Daily GEMBA walks lead to process improvements, and ensure that safety remains a focus throughout the manufacturing stages of a given program or work center.   The plant has also implemented several Hazard Assessment Audits that will be performed on a yearly basis.

Spincraft management hosted a luncheon for the Commerce Drive facility workers honoring a year with no lost time due to injuries. The facility reached 544 days, and reported a 65% decrease in injury rate from November 2017 to Nov 2018.

Spincraft UK - Standex Day Of Service:  Update July 2020

July 2020:  In October 2018, a team from Spincraft UK set out to improve wildlife habitat in County Durham.  The group consisted of thirteen 17 - 70 year-olds who spent the day with Durham Wildlife Trust, removing and burning grose (a very prickly bush).   The beneficiary of this work would be the endangered Border Pearl Fritillary Butterfly (BPFB).  Removal of the invasive grose brush would allow regeneration of plants on which BPFB like to breed and feed.

Barn_Owl_and_BoxAn additional task was to install an owl box, with the hope that the improved habitat would attract owls to the area.  And mission accomplished!  The owl box has been inhabited as of June 2020.  It typically takes a few years for the mouse and vole population to increase and for new bird life to appear.  The Trust, Spincraft Team, and obviously the owls are delighted with these results in the relatively short time span under two years.Barn_Owl_flight

Go4SeT  Spincraft Newcastle UK, July 2019

Go4Set LogoCApril through July 2019 found Spincraft Newcastle's Ross Winter and Maria Delgado working on a project in conjunction with Go4Set.  The Go4Set program was developed for 11-12 year-olds, with the goal of giving them 'opportunities to develop skills, inform subject choice and change perceptions about STEM by raising awareness of how studying these subjects can lead to a rewarding career'.

Ross (Technical Estimator) and Maria (Mechanical Engineer) worked with a group of 6 students from Gosforth Middle School on a project themed around designing and building a new sports centre in the local area.  The students were in full control of the project, with Ross and Maria meeting with them once a week to monitor their progress and give advice.  The Spincraft team gave support on technical skills for presentations, and shared how they use those same skills in their every day working environment.

The project culminated in a competition with 4 other schools from the North East, judged by industry professionals.  The Gosforth and Spincraft team won the 'Best Overall' prize, and came in a close second in the 'Peoples Choice' award which was chosen by the competitors.  CONGRATULATIONS to the GOSFORTH team!!



CHRISTMAS CHEER 2018,  Spincraft WI

The 2018 holiday season found Spincraft WI supporting the Christmas Clearing Council of Waukesha County for the 3rd consecutive year.  The facility helped make Christmas wishes come true for 12 children from three local families.

The Council offers a personal approach by putting donators in contact with their matched families to then receive each child’s wish/need lists.  Cards were made providing the child’s first name, Male or Female, and included an item on their wish list.  Spincraft employees then selected cards and purchased the gifts, or donated money letting other employees do the shopping.  

Results of the shopping extravaganza are shown below.   The unwrapped gifts were then delivered to the parents in time for Christmas.  Each family also received a food gift card to help with the holiday meals.



Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, Milwaukee Bucks, WI Economic Develop Corp (WEDC), and WI Aerospace Partners joined forces to host the second Aerospace Jam on Oct 27, 2018.   This year’s event was held at the new Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee.   

Aerospace Jam was created to provide students an opportunity to learn more about Wisconsin’s aerospace industry and local businesses.  The half-day event drew over 300 STEM students, ranging from middle school to college seniors. 

Spincraft WI participated for the second year, welcoming the chance to speak with students about manufacturing at their New Berlin facilities.    Spincraft Engineering Manager, Jeff Dudzik, fielded questions ranging from the very basic to highly complex, with subjects covering Spincraft processes, technologies, products and applications.   Dudzik found it refreshing and rewarding to connect with the enthusiastic students, stating it gave him a ‘new perspective and appreciation’ for the variety of interesting projects and development work Spincraft has been a part of for so many years. 

Spincraft Engineering Intern Michael Mueller offered his insight to those students inquiring about intern duties, and HR Manager Jamie Martin spoke of various career opportunities within the plant.

Below:  Mueller, Martin and Dudzik at the Spincraft display, ready for Aerospace Jam to begin.



Standex Day of Service:  Enginetics supports St. Vincent de Paul

Enginetics_DayOfService_Jan2018 b

January, 2018:    New for 2018, Standex International Corporation is supporting a Day of Service program throughout the Standex companies.  Strongly driven by President, David Dunbar, the program allows Standex facilities to partner with a local charity to help provide service within the community.  Teams of employees volunteer together during their work day to support a particular charity program or event.

The Enginetics plant in Huber Heights, OH chose to work with the St. Vincent de Paul organization out of Dayton.  The size of the Enginetics facility and vast scope of St. Vincent services paired well to allow various teams of rotating employees to support programs over several months.  Once a month the participating team will purchase, prepare and assemble 100+ bagged lunches for SVDP to distribute to various clients.  Other teams will serve Lunch or Dinner at one of the local shelters.  Several other one-time projects are also available for additional volunteer efforts as needed.

Enginetics_DayOfService_Jan2018aSInitial feedback on the program has been overwhelmingly positive, even at this early stage.  Enginetics’ event coordinator, Bobbi Andreatta, reported that the first volunteers were very pleased to have the opportunity to help within their community, and were requesting additional opportunities.

Look for further highlights on the Day of Service program as other ETG and Standex facilities continue to participate throughout the new year.

2016 National Manufacturing Day

Enginetics_Mfg_Day_2016_062_Mad River and StebbinsEnginetics Huber Heights and Eastlake, Ohio facilities participated in the 2016 National Manufacturing Day held Oct 7th across the U.S.  This yearly event initiated in 2012 was created to provide workforce information and inspiration to the next generation of manufacturers.  Many companies today are finding it increasingly difficult to locate skilled trade individuals.  Manufacturing Day exposes high school students, college students and job seekers to the rewarding careers that manufacturing offers, and acknowledges the importance of these positions within local, national and global economies.  The Manufacturing Day 2016 website reported over 2,750 events held throughout the US.

Participating in its fourth consecutive Manufacturing Day, Enginetics continues to work closely with Dayton Region Manufacturers Association (DRMA) and local schools to promote the event.  This year the Huber Heights facility hosted Wright Patterson Christian Home School, Dayton Early College Career School, Mad River Middle School and Stebbins High School.  Enginetics’ Eastlake facility participated for the first time, hosting 11th and 12th graders from the Auburn Career Center, and CNC students from Cuyahoga Community College.  Approximately 200 participants took part in the Enginetics events. 

The students took guided tours at each location, following an actual part router from beginning to end.  Tour guides lead each group through various departments such as CNC, Florescent Penetrant Inspection, Milling, Welding, Engineering, Heat Treat, Laser, NPI and Quality.  Students learned about careers in Engineering, Quality, Laser Programmer, CNC, Weld, Tool & Die, and Human Resources.  Participants received a summary of Enginetics Aerospace, brochures from DRMA, a pencil and popcorn goody bag.  The Enginetics’ Laser Department took scrap material and made Manufacturing Day key chains as mementos.

Additional support and participation came from various industry contacts.  Enginetics received 250 pairs of safety glasses through Rodney Bethea of 3M, and the popcorn machine and supplies were donated by Derringer Vending.  

Enginetics HR Manager Linda Wright-Manuel has been a strong advocate of the program for several years: “I think this is a great way that Standex companies can play an important role in the community and help shape the future of our youth”. 

Additional Standex companies participating in Manufacturing Day included:

All employees are responsible for ensuring that the workplace is free from such discrimination or harassment by employees and non-employees such as vendors, contractors, consultants and visitors.
  • To ensure compliance with this policy, please feel free to direct any questions or concerns about this policy or about a specific fact situation to the attention of your supervisor, department manager or plant manager.

Standex International Corporation Code of Conduct

Conflict Minerals Policy Statement

Due to the increased awareness of violence and human rights violations reportedly funded by profits from the mining and sale of certain minerals from the Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries (collectively the “DRC”), section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (“Dodd-Frank”) directed the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to adopt rules to implement disclosure requirements to create transparency and consumer awareness of the use by U.S. publicly-traded companies of “conflict minerals” (tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold, also known as “3TG”) that directly or indirectly benefit armed groups in the DRC. The SEC has imposed disclosure requirements on publicly-traded companies concerning the use of 3TG minerals in their products, the origin of the metals used if they are not “conflict free” and the due diligence efforts employed to determine the country of origin and chain of custody of 3TG minerals (collectively with Dodd-Frank, the “Rule”). A product manufactured by a public company is deemed to be “conflict free” if the product does not contain 3TG minerals that directly or indirectly finances or benefits armed groups in the DRC.

Standex supports the aims and objectives of Dodd-Frank, and we do not knowingly procure 3TG minerals that originate from non-conflict free mines or smelters in the DRC. Standex requires the use of certain 3TG minerals in raw materials and components in manufacturing for the functional performance of our products. In compliance with the Rule, we have established this Conflict Minerals Policy Statement and have undertaken a variety of activities. Because we do not directly procure any 3TG minerals from smelters or mines, we must rely on the source information provided by our suppliers in order to trace minerals to their origin. We are working with our suppliers to ensure responsible sourcing throughout our supply chain. We have asked our suppliers to undertake reasonable due diligence with their supply chains to determine whether the 3TG minerals that are used in certain products, components and materials supplied to us have been sourced from mines and smelters outside the DRC, have been sourced from mines and smelters that are conflict free or were derived from scrap or recycled sources. Should Standex become aware of a supplier whose supply chain includes 3TG minerals procured from a non-conflict free source, we will take appropriate actions to remedy the situation, including using our commercially reasonable, best efforts to transition the product, component or materials containing non-conflict free 3TG minerals to be conflict free. We expect our suppliers will take similar actions so that our entire supply chain remains conflict free.
