Clothing Manufacturer and Distributor
When our client, a national clothing manufacturer and distributor, experienced an overwhelming increase in demand, they called us. Strom deployed a managed workforce of 100+ workers for 3-4 months to keep operations and systems running at four distribution centers, using local and national temporary labor.
Strom provided over 200 personnel to keep operations running during a 4-month strike. Strom Project Managers and Coordinators participated in several planning sessions throughout the course of the strike, working with the company leadership to identify the right talent in a complex operational environment.
Strom operated at 100% with a workforce half the size of the striking bargaining unit.
Strom operated a second facility at a planned 60% production with 19% of the striking bargaining unit.
Strom supplied a managed workforce on short notice, in order to run facilities for new management after experiencing labor issues at a newly purchased facility. Strom reached operational goals and rapidly transitioned workforce to local employees.
Agricultural Equipment Manufacturer
Strom employees set numerous quality and production records at our client’s operations. Our client’s confidence in Strom prompted the launch of a new product line during the UAW strike. Strom significantly exceeded expected product output at previously unheard-of quality ratings.
Strom’s planning and support successfully helped to avoid a work stoppage at other client locations. Our client effectively utilized Strom’s successful performance during a previous strike as negotiating leverage.
Agricultural Equipment Parts Distribution Center
Strom managed and staffed a cold re-start of the largest parts distribution center in the client’s company. Strom ramped up quickly in response to the busy springtime season, using approximately 60% of the personnel ordinarily doing the work.
