Paint Line Loader/Unloader

Job Description

Loading/unloading components from overhead conveyor in the quantities and sequence required, following written production schedules, and packaging product as required.

What is your workday like?
At the unload area we see the parts after they have already been painted. We are the last people to touch the parts before they are shipped to our customers, so it’s very important that we check for quality defects when unloading parts. At the start of our day, we check our dispatch so we will know what is going to be coming off the paint line, and we make sure we have the right size pallets available for packing the parts by customer order. When the parts come down the paint line, we take them off of the line and use a bander to tie the pieces together in a pack. The people at the end of the line make sure the right number of parts goes to the right customer order.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
Working on the paint line is very fast-paced, so there’s no time to be bored and there’s plenty of variety. I enjoy the people that I work with—everyone tries to help each other out and work as a team. There’s also extra motivation to perform well: the management team notices things like that.

Assembler

Job Description

Complete mechanical and electrical assemblies and sub-assemblies using hand tools, electronic, and pneumatic tooling. Interpret shop orders and prints to assemble products to specifications.

What is your workday like?
We typically start our day by checking the computer system (IFS) for what orders we will be producing during the day. We also use this program throughout the day to report progress and bundle what we have completed. We use hand tools and overhead air tools to add components to our carriage system for our high-density mobile storage products—adding things like wheels, shafts, motors, and non-powered brakes. The carriage is what makes our system mobile.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
There is a lot of variety in what we do, because there are many different configurations of how a carriage can be built. I also have a lot of satisfaction in knowing what the finished product will be used to store everything from dinosaur bones to torpedoes to medical equipment. And Spacesaver is a place you can retire from, with profit sharing, bonuses, and even a 401K match.

Fabrication

Job Description

Set up and operate assigned equipment to make product using shop orders and prints. Produce parts that meet each customer’s quality and delivery requirements. Troubleshoot equipment problems.

What is your workday like?
In my daily work, I run a turret—a piece of machinery that punches holes in sheet steel before it is sent to a press brake to have the bends put into place. Running a turret consists of loading and unloading sheet steel to the turret, selecting the correct program for the part we want to make, and making quality checks.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
I really enjoy looking at my dispatch for the day and managing my time so I complete the day’s work. Also, this place is full of opportunities. When I first started, I couldn’t even read a tape measure, and now I’m operating a sophisticated piece of equipment!

Strategic Sales Specialist

Job Description

Communicate between Spacesaver and the sales personnel in our distribution network regarding sales opportunities. Provide timely technical sales support, project strategy, competitive intelligence, pricing, and other information as needed to assist our distribution partners in closing business.

What is your workday like?
I work primarily with our international distribution salespeople in Canada, Mexico, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates. I’m their resource at Spacesaver for product questions, product applications, and requests for custom or ETO (what we call Engineered-to-Order) products. I also gather information on competitive projects to ensure Spacesaver has strategically put their best foot forward when it comes to price. Our department strives to drive revenue and keep the manufacturing plant busy with orders!

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
I enjoy the fast-paced environment and working on many different things throughout the day. Not once does it seem methodical or slow. Occasionally we travel to meet with customers and having face-to-face contact with them is always the best kind. Most importantly, it’s always great to see a project you’ve worked on become an order. It’s a friendly atmosphere here, and your fellow team members are always willing to help.

Content Marketing Specialist

Job Description

Coordinates and creates compelling content for various media to generate awareness and shorten the sales cycle. Works collaboratively with the entire marketing team to conceptualize and develop effective marketing content that supports strategies and campaigns. Also works closely with our distribution/sales network and our customers.

What is your workday like?
First thing in the morning I check email and schedule social media posts for Spacesaver and some of our distribution partners. I spend the majority of my day writing and editing web content. I also work with other members of the Marketing Team on selecting and writing copy for print/digital advertising, pay-per-click advertising, email marketing campaigns, case studies, and other writing tasks.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
I really enjoy the flexibility my job provides. When I need some extra inspiration or there’s bad weather, I can work from home or a coffee shop as long as I’m still getting my work done. I also work hard to find fresh and creative ways to talk about our storage solutions and how we solve challenges for our customers. It keeps me on my toes as a writer to always be finding those new perspectives. The people on my team really make me look forward to work. Everyone is smart, creative, and funny, and it’s fun to talk through ideas. Together, we’re working to make our marketing strategy extremely progressive—something you can’t always find in a traditional B2B manufacturing setting.

Mechanical Design Engineer

Job Description

Responsible for the mechanical design and documentation of new products and product line extensions from concept through commercialization. Reports to the Director of Engineering and works closely with Product Managers, Project Managers, and Designers.

What is your workday like?
My daily work can be different from day-to-day depending on the workload. I can do everything from new design work using 3D CAD (PRO-E/CREO) to answering manufacturing and sales questions to data entry by structuring bills of material. I also help build prototypes, which allows me to perfect my designs.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
The design work can be different from day to day because we design “specials,” meaning there are times we will be working on something that the company has never produced before. What I like best about Spacesaver is the people! I can literally walk up to anyone in the company and ask them a question and that person will work with me to obtain the answer. It’s a great team!

Product Configuration Engineer

Job Description

The Product Engineer is responsible for all design aspects of developing, improving, and supporting assigned Spacesaver product lines. Primary responsibilities include supporting quality improvements, providing new product designs, and supporting engineering aspects of existing product lines.

What is your workday like?
My work can vary significantly depending on the type of project I’m involved in. Often I’m on a product development team, working toward the release of a new product. My daily duties include planning and developing product configurations in our ERP system (IFS). This involves rules definition for the sizes and features that are available on a specific product line. Implementing the configuration calls for creating tables, formulas, and conditional logic to define the product, resulting in configured structures, routings, and work guidelines.

In addition, I plan and develop product configurators that automate the creation of CAD (Creo/ProE) data for configurable products. These CAD automation configurators are developed using KBMax software. The process involves linking product data outputs from our ERP system to features and driving dimensions in the appropriate CAD models. To accomplish this, VB programming is used to develop formulas and define conditional logic—the result being CAD data that can be used by Operations to machine the configurable parts.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
I really enjoy working with my fellow engineers and designers to develop solutions to challenging or complex issues—not only engineers, but with a variety of people from different areas of the company. We have a great group of people here.

Production Management

Job Description

The Production Supervisor is responsible for the operational performance of the production area assigned, which includes but is not limited to: safety incident rate, cost of quality as a percentage of sales, quality no-charge expedited order percentage, on-time delivery percentage, labor as a percentage of sales and value added per labor hour, all of which are inputs to the budgeted operating profit percentage. Financial responsibilities include operating expenses as a percentage of sales and operating profit as a percentage of sales.

What is your workday like?
I start my day reviewing each schedule for each area of my responsibility, in order to assign proper staffing to each area. Once that’s complete, I review other areas in the plant to see if they may require any resources I may have available. The rest of my day revolves around working on team member and process development. This is done in many different ways—working with team members and my peers to improve efficiency and team member skill sets. The goal is to not only improve the rate of how we produce our products, but also to improve quality and team member development.

What do you like best—about your job and Spacesaver?
I’m given quite a bit of independence in managing my areas of responsibility. I feel like we have a great support system when needed to resolve any issue, from sales to manufacturing. I also really appreciate the diversity of our product line, and how the company is open to change and improvement. Even in the short amount of time I’ve been here, I’ve seen Spacesaver take on major projects to improve itself—and that to me is the key to future success.
