Weiler Corporation, which manufactures a variety of industrial brushes, abrasives and surface preparation devices, was selected as January’s featured manufacturer due to its innovative culture, forward-thinking management style, early adoption of Lean Enterprise, Leadership Development and advanced workplace training programs and world-class Voice of the Customer initiative. Weiler Corporation is a charter member of the region’s Process Improvement Consortium, frequent host of plant tours and best practice sharing sessions, and has representation on the Pennsylvania Statewide Industrial Resource Center Advisory Board and NEPIRC Board of Directors. Weiler Corporation is also an outstanding corporate citizen, which donated over 14 pallets of brooms, brushes and cleaning supplies to area shelters, assistance centers and clean-up crews in an effort to help northeastern Pennsylvania families rebuild following the devastation of Tropical Storm Lee.
Weiler Corporation’s commitment to innovation – which encompasses its products, processes, people and public involvement – has led to dramatic growth in sales, employment and profitability.
January’s “Made in Northeastern PA” feature was also co-sponsored by Precision Design, a marketing, advertising and website development firm in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, and RecognitionPRO, the developers of a cloud technology based employee recognition and achievement tracking system for manufacturers.
