SWEETWATER, TN (July 23, 2021) — Merritt Precision Technologies celebrated 1750 days without a lost time accident in their Tennessee location. From new hires to those who have been working at the facility for over 20 years, there is a deep culture of safety. This milestone was achieved because of the team’s intentional efforts.
Each week the team meets in a safety huddle to learn about a new safety topic. These meetings are conducted departmentally so that specific groups can look out for one another. Safety walks are also conducted to promote a safety environment. Merritt Precision utilizes incremental goals to strive for greater success. To celebrate the safety accomplishment, Merritt Precision hosted a lunch where the team voted on a surf and turf theme.
Merritt Precision highlights four core services: 3-D scanning, design / surface modeling, milling, and tooling. Currently the Tennessee location has around 50 employees and are growing with many employment opportunities. Merritt Precision is part of Correct Craft’s separate innovation company, Watershed Innovation.
Greg Warren, Director of Operations at Merritt Precision stated, “At Merritt Precision we take special care of not just our products, but also our processes and those that are around us. Having 1750 days without a lost time accident is an incredible accomplishment by our team who functions with safety as the first priority. I’m also proud of and thankful for Patrick Cummins our Tooling Manager for building a great team in Tennessee and instilling safety principles in all that we do.”
