From the steel fabricator’s perspective

January 08, 2016

Every steel fabricator gets bombarded all sorts of orders from clients, ranging in both size and complexity. The most difficult part for managers lies in managing the work related stress level and morale of technicians and workers in order to keep up their good performance and customer satisfaction standards. Unlike in other industries, it is difficult for fabricators to predict the busiest times because busy projects can come in at any time. That’s why its critical for managers to plan for the worst situations while expecting the best results.

The busy seasons of the year vary from one steel fabricator to another, it all depends on the customer base, the products on sale and the client’s markets. It is easy to build a profile for regular clients using the available management software, which makes it possible to know what to expect. The best way to reduce stress, stay on top of demand and keep prepared is by staying up-to-date with the client markets, following emerging trends and predicting them as much as you can.  There is no harm in establishing relationships with other steel fabricator players since it helps in sharing information on seasonal demands.

Governance actions and lack also affect busy times in the fabrication industry. For instance, increase in government infrastructure projects can boost the demand for fabricated products leading to sudden shoot-ups in production activities. Recession, on the other hand, can also cause unexpected deficits.

Every steel fabricator knows that dealing with worker’s stress is a function of both good leadership and management. Fabrication is one thing that requires both skill and good equipment, and hence it’s critical for technicians to put in their best. Communicating the performance expectation for your employees keeps them stress free and even motivates them to work hard. Baseline is a modern steel fabrication giant that encompasses a full range of structure to deliver high quality projects across Canada.
