The Exothermics Team: the Best and the Brightest
Since its founding, Exothermics has constantly strived for new frontiers in the design and manufacturing of its heat exchangers. Part of the reason it has been successful in its pioneering efforts has been the expertise and versatility of its engineers, who are among the best and brightest in the business. They believe, and have proven time and time again, that no matter what the situation, the right heat exchanger can be custom-designed and built to meet a customer's specific need.
This winning attitude - and expertise - extends to all Exothermics associates. Aside from hiring the best personnel, the company makes sure its associates stay current in their fields. As a result, continuous training and skill enhancement are a way of life at Exothermics. For example, its manufacturing associates are cross-trained and certified in multiple welder qualifications and procedures. It is critical training because the company has established a series of weld procedures and qualifications specific to its proprietary processes and operations that reach beyond any applicable industry standards.
Additionally, all Exothermics associates have been schooled in the innovative virtues of Total Quality Management, as developed by Dr. W. Edward Deming. That means the company's associates serve on self-directed work teams and that key decisions are made by the associates themselves. Teamwork is critical. For instance, manufacturing teams evaluate and select the equipment needed in each operation. Exothermics endorses the concept that the people who actually perform the work can provide the best input.
