Five things Remke has learned that will make the next 50 years incredible: provide personal service, make quality connectors the first time, stay nimble, deliver quality through simplicity of design and production and treat employees well.
It's taken 50 years to become a premier manufacturer of electrical connectors, cord grips and more, building Remke Industries from the ground up. During that time, they have experienced growing pains, worked hard to achieve many victories, had unexpected successes and fought recession that kept them awake at night.
Remke has found new ways to use time-tested materials and methods to create better electrical connectors, in shorter production runs. A foundation of amazing people has been built and they've learned lessons from every one of them, from customers to employees, past and present.
But this isn't going to be one of those articles where backs are patted for how great the past 50 years have been. They're in the past. And although they are important, eyes are set on the future.
And the future is so bright Remke needs industrial-strength sunblock.
They've gained the wisdom, insight and expertise it takes in the first 50 years to launch new levels of success, service and innovation during the next 50.
