1,000,000 Hours Worked Without A Lost Time Incident At GM Flint
FLINT, July 15, 2015 – Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation (GK) celebrated 1,000,000 man hours worked without a lost time incident at the General Motors Flint New Paint Shop construction site. On Tuesday, July 14th GK joined the team of just over 1,000 workers on site for a luncheon acknowledging this major milestone.
Safety is an integral part of Gallagher-Kaiser’s production efficiency, quality control, and cost reduction. GK rewards crews for meeting and exceeding their high standards.
GM awarded Gallagher-Kaiser the project in 2014 and it is slated to be completed in 2016. The project includes a new building and all new process equipment.
In addition to GM Flint, Gallagher-Kaiser was awarded construction of new paint shops at GM Fairfax, GM Fort Wayne, GM Bowling Green and GM Arlington. The new facilities will make the assembly plants some of the most technologically advanced of all General Motors plants around the globe. The upgrades will lower each plant’s energy use, improve efficiency and reduce the waste stream.
“This is a great accomplishment and a direct result of the dedicated workforce who are committed to exercising safe work practices,” said Jeff Lorentzen, Corporate Safety Director at Gallagher-Kaiser. “It is truly a testament to the teamwork required on site every day.”
Founded in 1952, Gallagher-Kaiser Corporation is a privately owned, Michigan-based turn-key supplier of Paint Finishing Systems, Commercial HVAC and Mechanical Automotive Systems. More information can be found at gkcorp.lxdev.mediag.com.
