Throughout April, we’re highlighting people, places, and products within our Industrial Products segment. Today we’re pleased to spotlight Adcom Wire Company, part of L&P’s drawn wire division.
Employees at Adcom Wire Company in Jacksonville, Florida, produce massive spools of drawn steel wire. It’s ultimately used to make products like paint can handles, bailing wire for recycling compactors, and coiled bedsprings.
While the processes to produce that wire rarely change, employees still look for ways to innovate. It often involves developing solutions to improve safety practices and drive sustainability. They’re constantly working to expand their recycling program and reduce energy consumption. They’ve also made drastic improvements in safety compliance.
“There’s never a dull moment,” says Brandon Killian, Safety and Purchasing Manager. “Every new challenge forces us to think outside the box.”
Their work rarely ends on the factory floor, either. Many employees reach beyond company walls to benefit the local community. In fact, participation in Adcom’s Eco Initiative program is a highly coveted opportunity. The 9-member team rotates on a regular basis to allow new participants to be involved.
The committee’s outreach projects have included can drives, gardening programs with at-risk youth, care packages for the homeless, and participation in cancer walks. These initiatives have a positive impact in the Jacksonville community. They also build teamwork and strengthen relationships between employees.
According to Brandon, “When you have a job you love to do – that you have a passion for – it makes each day a little better.”
