As we celebrate Baker’s 25 years in business,we thought it worthwhile to share our thoughts on the past quarter century.
Who would have predicted that a three-person duplicating shop, would rise up to stand tall amongst some of the most sophisticated manufacturers in America? We started small, surviving through some historical economic downturns. Some would say our survival is a tribute to our hard work. We like to think that our 25 years of success can be attributed to a combination of our ability to evolve with the ever changing landscape of the manufacturing world, our persistent dedication to solving our customers most complex challenges, and our dedicated team of experts that make all of this hard work look easy.
At the heart of our accomplishments is a great deal of grit, and a willingness to take risks to benefit our customers– their demands, challenges and feedback have pushed us to improve vigorously. Although we may be tempted to indulge in a self-congratulatory moment on our 25th anniversary, we remain mindful that the manufacturing world is an ever-changing place, and if anything, we must accelerate. As we move forward, we must think ahead to what the next 25 years will hold.
Building upon our industry leadership and expertise requires further dedication, innovation, and execution of critical strategies. Our top priority will remain to integrate our best people with the best technology, best equipment and best practices, to deliver excellence in every project for every customer. These goals will challenge each of us. The work will be hard but the rewards high.
This milestone provides us an opportunity to both reflect on our past and to look forward to our future. As we celebrate, we say “Thank You” to all of our customers and employees, both past and present.
Thanks to you, the last 25 years has made all of us at Baker Industries proven, prepared and proud.
