This November, Latem Industries in Cambridge, Ontario will celebrate 40 years in the mass finishing business. We think this deserves a trophy of sorts, especially since trophies are what got us into this business in the first place.
The family had a trophy and awards business in London, Ontario and was in need of a supplier to do some polishing. With little luck in finding a potential suitor, it became a project they took on themselves. Today, Latem services Ontario's manufacturing community with problem solving soltutions in everything from burr removal to surface conditioning, corrosion removal and polishing. And because a vast majority of the work we do is for the automotive sector, we understand the need for 'super duper' quick turnaround times.
As proud as we may be of our 40 Year Anniversary, we are equally proud, and perhaps moreso, of some of the people who have been with us for nearly as long. Take Sue for example, celebrating 33 years in a Latem uniform in 2017. Sue runs our floor and helps to determine many of our processes.
Lisa is our Materials Supervisor. She has been keeping the wheels moving in both logistics and scheduling for 31 years.
Mike has been with Latem for close to 30 years and Chris and Reg have been Latem operators for more than a quarter century.
For any business to make it to their 40th Anniversary is something worth celebrating. But to have thrived in an industry that has taken multiple beatings over the years, and still come out on top, is quite a milestone.
