We are all about responding to our customers. When one of them said, "It sure would be nice if you were on the Ariba network," we got signed up right away. Some businesses are using Ariba exclusively for their supply chain. If you are one of them, you can see our Supplier Profile here. It's been a real pleasure to do business with Buyers like you. The supply chain is well-lubed, information is precise, you are assured you are dealing with a reputable company in Stevenson, and the whole transaction process is quicker. Try us, you'll like us.
Stevenson Company remains comitted to education. We had a surprise guest at our shop who was studying for History Day. Rose toured the shop, watched machines operate, and had an unusual request: Could we build an aluminum prop so she could demonstrate some of the work women did during World War II? Our answer was an emphatic, "We can do it!"
Americans are changing their diets and the snack industry is poised to serve. Popcorn is becoming increasingly more popular; our industry is going to facilitate a change in the country's palate.
We welcome popcorn, re-imagined as a healthy vehicle of gourmet flavors: sea salt, ginger sesame, lime, and even maple bacon. Innovation has propelled popcorn to the fastest growing sector in the snack market.
Stevenson Company has enrolled in the Tungsten payment process. This new, superfast system allows us to process orders and get work done quickly. Last night, for example, we were able to help a Pet Food plant find and purchase the replacement parts they needed to get up and running. We got the materials on the way, received them in the wee hours today, delivered by morning, and installed by noon. This fast pace was possible because of a a team of conscientious mechanics who are willing to see the project through, and also because Tungsten lubricated the process.
Last month, my dad brought in some books that mean a lot to me.
First you ought to know that this sheet metal thing is in my genes. I’ve been at Stevenson Company for 20-some years. My dad owned the place before I arrived, and my grandfather worked here even before that. He lived five blocks from the shop. After he retired and we still worked, it was nice to buzz over to his house, where he had lunch waiting, along with some sage advice and the day’s news.
Pop is gone now, but while sorting through his tools and other belongings Dad uncovered these dusty old apprenticeship books. The inside flap has the address of his temporary U.S. Army station in Germany, sent compliments of Topeka Trade School.
