Happy Eclipse Day!

Just like the rest of the South East, Everlasting is excited for the Solar Eclipse. Employees have been buzzing about it for a few weeks now and the day is finally here. And while we all want this to be a fun experience we also ask that everyone be safe. Make sure to do your homework and follow recommendations for viewing the Eclipse. The only after affects we hope to have are the stories that we can tell future generations of this daytime darkness. Happy Eclipse Day!

Kaizen – Continuous Improvement!

The Matthews Management System, or MMS, is a global group that brings the LEAN methodology to all of Matthew’s locations.  This group works in tandem with the production facilities, managers and office personnel to help improve, grow and become more efficient with a greater emphasis on quality.  We at the Everlasting/Elberton location are happy to have been assigned our Continuous Improvement Engineer, Frank Perriello.  Frank and his colleague  Zuheir Obeid have already held numerous Kaizen workshops that have led to great changes in our internal systems and they have also implemented SQDV boards that help managers track and resolve quality issues.  We are excited to see this program continue to evolve and improve our quality of change, quality of work and most importantly our quality of product.
