Colin Powell once said, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.”

If something looks easy, it is only because there were countless hours of preparation, hard work and learning from mistakes that you never saw coming. This quote is so true and it really represents the core of our efforts at Vulcan GMS to become the manufacturer that we are today.

Each October, Grainger, an organization that helps businesses manage their facilities, recognizes 50 companies in the United States for excellence in manufacturing. Companies must be nominated to be considered for the award. Grainger looks at multiple key elements:

  • Safety and safety culture for employees.
  • Community involvement
  • Organization and implementation of lean, clean manufacturing facility
  • Improvements in your manufacturing environment.
  • Overall impression of your manufacturing organization.

Vulcan GMS is proud to announce that we are one of the 50 companies in the nation that won this award for 2015. In addition, Vulcan GMS is the only company in the Great Lakes region to win the award for 2015.

This award is important to Vulcan because no matter how far you come, there is always room for improvement and growth. We thank Grainger for their recognition and this award.

Vulcan will stay the course on our commitment to manufacturing excellence.
