Bowden Blog – New Hiring Program

Our Bowden Blog is back after sorting out some technical issues in our filming and editing and I’m excited to stray a little from our recent 2-Second Lean theme.

We’ve got a new hiring program that we’re very excited about, bringing in fresh Engineering graduates into our shop.  They are seeking to learn and we are seeking to help them on a journey to be Manufacturing Engineers.

In this quick video, we’ll introduce a few of them to you!

Thanks for watching,  Andy

Bowden Blog: 2-Second Lean Struggle – “What Should I Improve Today?!?”

For this edition of the Bowden Blog, we’re dealing with the struggle of what to do with our Daily Improvement Time.

It’s mid-January and my daughter, Abby, is helping film and edit the videos.  It’s her first one and this one ended up a bit long…she’ll clearly have to work to get the “talent” (me!) to ramble a bit less…

Hopefully some of these ideas will help you keep your Team focused and engaged, as there is always plenty of opportunity to improve!

Thanks, Andy

Throwback Thursday: Bowden’s Building and The Three Little Pigs

Bowden Manufacturing has been a cornerstone in the Willoughby City as well as the machining and manufacturing industry for decades. Since 1957,  Bowden has been located in the same building at 4590 Beidler Road in Willoughby, OH.

The building’s brick structure portrays a quaint symbolism of the company’s strength, and endurance for over 50 Years! Similar to the brick house in the Three Little Pigs Fable, Bowden Manufacturing has stood strong, withstanding outside turbulence. The test of time has fortified Bowden’s reputation as a ‘go-to’ manufacturer in the industry.

As with all seasoned structures, Bowden Manufacturing is only as good as its foundation. Our Teammates, Leadership and the Relationships we build serves as the groundwork on which we build our business upon. Bowden Manufacturing employees are Trust-worthy, Safety-Conscious and Dependable. They are a true testament and representation of the philosophy we operate by.

At Bowden Manufacturing we build our relationships with the same values: To Establish, Maintain and Grow Long-term, Mutually Beneficial Relationships with our Customers, our Teammates & their Families, our Suppliers and our Community.
