AUSTELL, GA – August 5, 2014

EGI’s Austell  facility recently achieved One year without a recordable or lost time injury. Mike Mitchell, Plant Manufacturing Manager of Austell explains what it takes to reach a safety milestone. “Safety Milestones are reached through ongoing communication and constant safety practices”. He also states that “an associate is the Number One asset of any company and it is important that they have a safe environment to work in every day.”

Achieving Safety Milestones is a goal every facility strives to obtain. Mitchell’s advice on how to reach these goals include; holding weekly and monthly Safety Communication meetings, completing safety checklists and internal safety audits, and finally if an issue does present itself, to shut down the workstation until the issue has been corrected.

Achieving Safety Milestones is a great accomplishment. EGI embraces safe practices and policies, and works hard to ensure that working conditions meet or exceed industry standards.

CLASS 100,000 Clean Room with Fully Automated Production Cell

With this new revival of the U.S. manufacturing sector, the industry is learning to embrace newer technologies and innovative processes and products to keep ahead of the competition and keep manufacturing production grounded on U.S. soil. One such company, Ernie Green Industries (EGI), is taking initiative to gain an edge on competition by doing just that. EGI, since 1981, has been manufacturing high quality products and parts. Offering the industry’s most disciplined design, engineering and manufacturing production process that now transcends across a plethora of industries including: medical, automotive, energy and life sciences. EGI is continuing to diversify its portfolio with endeavors into new disruptive technologies, including this past summer’s investment in MPack.

EGI is assisting MPack in tool design, resin selection, manufacturing & distribution, as well as redesign of its new flat shaped pill bottles. These new bottles will revolutionize the pharmacy to patient experience as the MPack flat bottle surface supports QR codes for documented video pharmacy consulting, store promotions, automatic reorders and even medication dosage reminders. In addition, MPack’s 3-sided flat surface pill bottle allows nearly twice the label space, putting more critical information into the hands of the patient.

EGI also recently announced its partnership with Auramist, whose new product lineup will include high performance portable cooling fans positioned for distribution throughout major retail chains. EGI will be assisting in research and development, product design, manufacturing and distribution of this product.

EGI’s specialties lie within plastic injection molding, plastic chrome plating, painting, assembly, as well as R & D and program management. However, more importantly, EGI’s commitment to provide innovative solutions has set them apart from the more traditional manufacturing role. They accomplish this through a solid vision and core principles that trickle down into every aspect of the company; from R&D, to the technicians on the production floor, everyone and everything within the EGI footprint encompasses these core principles.

EGI is standing at the frontier of a new kind of manufacturing industry not previously engaged in the U.S., one that brings forth not only the utilization of state-of-the-art technologies, but incorporates a talented and diverse workforce and invests in product ideas that have the potential to change the world. EGI is making waves and rocking the concept of traditional manufacturing through its ingenious efforts to offer globally competitive manufacturing, locally.
