Flavio Negrier, South America - Safety
In 2017, Flexco Chile not only celebrated five years of operation, but also five years of safety. It was Plant Manager Flavio Negrier who worked with a safety consultant to develop a detailed safety work plan, ensuring safe working conditions for all employees and keeping in compliance with Chilean safety regulations. Throughout the year, Flavio monitors the progress of the plan and works to adjust it as needed. Flavio’s hard work and attention to detail keeps safety at the top of Flexco Chile’s list.
May Dai, Rose Peng, Judy Xu, and Lianbing Yao, China – Customer Excellence
May Dai, Rose Peng, Judy Xu, and Lianbing Yao all took on the challenge of increased orders with determination and perseverance to make every order a success for Flexco China. They found smarter, more cost-effective ways to enter orders, obtain and complete customs and government documents, and pack and ship product. This customer commitment not only streamlined operations for our internal team, but also resulted in on-time shipping to our customers.
Oscar Chibuye, Michael Kaye, Sarah Thackray, and David Wetherell, UK – Operational Excellence
As the demand in for our H-Type®, P-Type®, and R-Type® cleaners accelerated in Europe, the option to source cleaners from Flexco UK became increasingly attractive in order to meet customer expectations. Oscar Chibuye, Michael Kaye, Sarah Thackray, and David Wetherell worked together to harmonize item codes and nomenclatures with our European office, upgrade the assembly area for a three-fold increase in production, update packaging to fit export standards, and streamline the assembly process to produce cleaners more quickly. This yielded reduced lead times for customers and major savings for Flexco Europe.
Rosemary Mills, North America – Community Service
Flexco is lucky to have had a key employee like Rosemary Mills on our team for more than 35 years. It’s hard to believe that someone could find her even more valuable than we do, but people in her local community would like to challenge that thought. When she isn’t working hard to make Flexco a better place, her amazing work ethic is on display throughout the Grand Rapids-area as she volunteers her time and talents daily. From supporting the Girl Scouts to cultivating a community garden, Rosemary’s commitment to community service serves as inspiration to us all.
Zheng Duan, Matt Koca, and Joel Wagner, North America - Creativity
Recognizing that dust generation is a major concern among our customers and realizing that predicting air pressures/flow along with material flow would better equip Flexco to offer the right solution for a given problem transfer, Zheng Duan, Matt Koca, and Joel Wagner got to work developing a new, proprietary software. Because of the innovative thinking of this team, our designers have yet another tool at their disposal for designing transfer points that work best for the customer.

Flexco really makes an effort to bring people from the office and the shop together. We just had a chili contest and I feel like the participation at company events like these really meshes all of us together.

I grew up in Grand Rapids and to be able to work for the best employer in town is pretty amazing. I’m at a great company and close to family, so retirement at Flexco is a definite goal.

As long as I am productive, management has always allowed me to be independent. If they didn’t let that happen, I wouldn’t be where I am now.
