2020 Employee of the Year

Employee of the Year

(Photo L-R: Jonathan Murray, President & CEO presents awards to Rick Williamson, Mike Kelly and Derek Chapman)

 

Derek Chapman (Hourly Employee of the Year) – During the 2020-year Derek Chapman has grown into this role as Cell Leader and has truly set himself apart.  His motivation and pride in the company are prevalent not just within the walls of LASCO but also within the community. His focus on training and development as well as holding people accountable for their actions has created a team that has safety, quality and productivity as their top priorities. 

 

Rick Williamson (Salary Employee of the Year) – In the course of 2020, Rick was assigned as the Interim Manager of Technical Services. Rick’s contributions span outside of the walls of LASCO.  Rick has provided innovative training to customers and sales teams on the use and installation of our products amid a time where travel was restricted.  This meant Rick had to adapt to new practices to ensure that our customers received the same level of service that they have become accustomed to working with LASCO. He and his team were also challenged with developing new testing methods and protocols for various projects. 

 

Mike Kelly (Salary Employee of the Year) – Throughout the 2020-year Mike Kelly has worn many hats.  His position of Continuous Improvement Leader required him to interact with numerous departments throughout the company.  However, during 2020 he had to do something that was not only beneficial to his own development but also to the identification of areas of improvement for the company.  In mid-2020, Mike was asked to fill in as a Supervisor in the Manufacturing Department.  In the meantime, he was not only able to prove his ability as a leader but also as a business partner.  He has identified improvements with reporting as well as how we do business.  He is also an integral member of the Operational Leadership Team and continues to drive the business forward.

 

LASCO would like to thank each of you for your dedication and commitment to the company. Congratulations on the well-deserved title of "Employee of the Year", you earned it!

Thank you to all the employees in the Barcode Department, your contributions were instrumental to our success 2020. Keep up the great work!

LASCO Supply Chain Update

February 19, 2021

Dear Valued LASCO Customer,

With the recent extreme weather conditions in the Gulf Coast region, several PVC resin manufacturers have declared Force Majeure.

LASCO to increase FFA Policy, February 15, 2021

January 27, 2021


Dear Valued Customer,


Effective Monday, February 15th, 2021 LASCO Fittings, Inc. will increase our FFA policy approximately 10%. Currently, our standard freight policy is FOB LASCO Warehouses, prepaid on orders totaling $1650 net for one shipment to a single destination within the contiguous United States. This new prepaid amount will be $1800. Alaska and Hawaii will now be $2500 for our standard freight policy.

Along with raw material, labor, and most everything else - freight rates have been on the rise across the US and will continue to rise. We have absorbed these freight increases as long as we can and believe it is necessary to circumvent a portion of these additional costs by increasing the amount of the FFA shipments.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Aalberts Awards 2020

 
 

 

Aalberts awards 2020


While 2020 was a challenging year, the strong team spirit across Aalberts helped us pull together for our customers and one another. This made the annual awards that were handed out (digitally) during today's leadership webinar even more special. And while there were many tremendous achievements on display across Aalberts, some were truly extra special.

 

innovation award 2020: BROEN
The word innovation is often used gratuitously. At Aalberts, we rather talk about improvement, because we know what it takes. It’s people who believe that there is always room for improvement that create real progress. And while innovation is a vital part of how we develop, the real benefits occur when innovations become true game-changers for both customers and Aalberts through spin-off applications for other group companies. That is where the extra mile is.

nominees: VTI, Aalberts dispense technologies, BROEN

 

sustainability award 2020: Aalberts hydronic flow control
Day in, day out, our team of entrepreneurs is focused on achieving our objectives as sustainably as possible. From creating technologies that enable our customers to enhance their own businesses and get the planet back into good shape, to ensuring our own operations are as clean, green, and waste-free as possible. Those companies within Aalberts who manage to achieve excellent health & safety figures on top of that, while focusing on projects that make a positive contribution and society deserve this award.

nominees: BROEN, Aalberts integrated piping systems, Aalberts hydronic flow control

 

people & culture award 2020: Aalberts advanced mechatronics
The Aalberts brand is invaluable. It is trusted and helps us open doors around the world. We looked for exceptional ways the brand was implemented, the company passport was used, and new employees were onboarded. We also looked at how they focused on employee development and job mobility, and taking ownership with the recruitment process and social leadership, and brought it all together through strong internal communications.

nominees: Aalberts integrated piping systems, Aalberts surface technologies, Aalberts advanced mechatronics

 

performance award 2020: HENCO
How well has a team performed in 2020? Overcoming challenging market circumstances, did it manage strong organic growth? Was its EBITA % ahead of budget and seriously better than 2019? And how did they show ingenuity in finding opportunities to manage their free cash flow? Is their attitude 'good is never good enough'? With many great performing entrepreneurs, one team came out on top.

nominees: ISIFLO, Aalberts hydronic flow control, HENCO

 
 

 

relentless award 2020: LASCO Fittings
At Aalberts, we own every moment when things stop working or when things need to work according to a plan, even when that plan is not fully written. And no matter when these situations occur, we are there. The relentless award is for those who assume responsibility way beyond what is expected, and feel accountable even when they are not on duty. Relentless efforts to manage extreme circumstances in 2020. Showing true entrepreneurship and dedication to progress.


nominees: Aalberts process technologies, Aalberts dispense technologies, LASCO Fittings

Congratulations and thanks to all mission-critical people who made real progress happen in 2020.

DWV-PVC, DWV-PVC Large Diameter (10”-12”) and DWV-ABS FITTINGS PRICE INCREASE: SEPTEMBER 21, 2020

September 8, 2020

 

TO: Our Valued Customers

RE: ABS & PVC-DWV Price Increases

 

Effective Monday, September 21, 2020, LASCO Fittings, Inc. will implement a price increase on our PVC-DWV fittings, PVC-DWV Large Diameter (10”-12”) fittings and ABS-DWV fittings.

All DWV product categories will increase 7% over the September 8, 2020 list prices.  To arrive at the new list prices, divide the September 8 list prices by .93.  Please note some fittings may increase by more than 7%.  The new prices will be available in Excel and PDF format on our website at www.lascofittings.com by September 14, 2020.  Current invoice multipliers will remain in effect.

Orders received prior to 6pm CDT on Friday, September 18 will receive Sept 8 list prices.  All orders are for immediate shipment and any unusually large orders may either be altered or denied.

We regret having to declare two DWV price increases in the same month, but these are unusual times in our industry during this pandemic.  There have been several extraordinary events recently in the market - resulting in reduced capacities, surging demand, and soaring raw material costs. 

If you have any questions, please contact your LASCO Fittings, Inc. salesperson.  We appreciate the opportunity to serve as your PVC fittings partner.

 

Sincerely,

LASCO Fittings, Inc.
