08/19/2014


Expanding your manufacturing facility isn’t usually something that becomes a team project with all of your employees engaged. One Cincinnati manufacturer shows that employee engagement with such a project is like building a new facility; it happens one brick at a time.

Mick Wilz of Sur-Seal Corporation will be the luncheon keynote at the 2014 Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit at this year’s IMTS Show, Sept. 8-13 in Chicago.

In this Webcast, he talks about how he managed to change the culture at his family-owned business and drive success and growth at the same time.

Mick Wilz, Director of Enterprise Excellence at Sur-Seal Corporation, will talk about building employee engagement at the 2014 Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit at IMTS 2014 in Chicago. Courtesy: Sur-Seal CorporationWilz is a 22-year veteran of all aspects of manufacturing—production management, lean process development, enterprise excellence and everything in between. Wilz, co-owner of Sur-Seal Corporation, began his own journey to personal and business excellence about five years ago by actively seeking a variety of tools to meet his needs and the needs of the business. Wilz has developed a unique Twenty Step Program, as pictured above. "My interest is to take tribal knowledge and make it visual and accessible to everyone," he said. He is widely known for his use of Legos to create a hands-on visual model of Sur-Seal to aid in the transition of the production floor.

Wilz is also extremely involved in his community, serving on boards and advisory committees for Main Street Brookville, the Whitewater Canal Trail and Safe Passage. In this regard, Wilz embodies the quote, "Volunteering is an act of heroism on a grand scale. It does more than help people beat the odds; it changes the odds."

In 2013 Wilz will begin two new roles: president of the Great Lakes Region for AME and the role of Senior Advisor/Board of Advisors for Sur-Seal, which received the 2012 AME Excellence Award.

CFE Media will sponsor the 2014 Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit on Sept. 10 starting at 8:15 a.m. in Room W190 in the West Wing of McCormick Place.
