Today is the last day of Safety Month, and Field is celebrating  over 1000 days without a recordable injury. At Field, our approach to safety is: It's a team effort with an individual commitment from team members.  Read more here: http://fieldfastener.com/2015/06/30/safety-a-team-effort-an-individual-commitment/

In the last video of The Field Journey blog series, Adam talks about how Field has embraced technology as a way to conserve our culture as we continue to expand. He discusses how the use of technology is changing the way our prospects communicate with us and how we communicate with them. Adam also talks about and introduces us to, Spartacus, Field's Double Robotics robot. He discusses the positive impact Spartacus has made at Field and how Spartacus fits into the Field culture. https://lnkd.in/eNDjzkC

 Vendor managed inventory (VMI) is a practice in which a supplier takes full responsibility for managing a buyer’s inventory at that buyer’s location. With the right tools it is easier for a supplier to effectively manage inventory than for buyers to try and manage hundreds or thousands of part numbers on their own. Download our 'What Is VMI' white paper below or click here to go the Field website to read more about it: https://lnkd.in/ecWBiP9

Lean is just part of the fabric of who we are as an organization. Everybody is empowered and challenged to think lean, to think continuous improvement, to always look for a better way to do things. I think as organization we’re extremely proud of what we do and how we do it, but at the same time we’re always willing and looking for better ways to do the way we do things we do today. http://fieldfastener.com/2015/07/16/field-figures-how-lean-benefits-vendor-managed-inventory-systems/

Field has a strong commitment to give back to the Rockford community. For the Field team it's not simply about sending a check, it's about getting out there in the community and volunteering to make a difference. This summer nearly every team member at Field is volunteering their time and resources to help build a home for a family in need, through Habitat for Humanity.  This home is the first build sponsored by Field, though many team members have volunteered with Habitat in the past. http://fieldfastener.com/2015/05/18/field-partners-with-habitat-for-humanity/

In video 8 of our series, Adam continues to discuss what the future may hold for Field. He takes a deeper dive into Field's engineering services and the different ways engineering will continue to support Field's value proposition. Adam talks about why he see's VMI moving to more POU type systems and using lean processes and value stream mapping to get the most out of those systems. He also discusses the possibility of Field becoming WERC certified and being a best in class distributor.  To watch click here:
