Annual Letter to Galland Henning Nopak Stakeholders

To Our Valued Employees, Customers, Suppliers, and Stakeholders,

In 2017, GHN celebrated a milestone achieved by few businesses: our 130th anniversary. Research states that fewer than 5% of family businesses endure to the fourth generation and a milestone of this significance. Arguably more significant, however, is our tremendous success in driving achievements on both the top and bottom lines. The company achieved record sales and profit growth in 2017. We took delivery of new machining centers to continue expanding capacity and increasing productivity. Various continuous improvement initiatives, such as expanded live machine monitoring and new equipment layouts, are driving efficiency improvements throughout operations. This company might have 130 years of history, but we are continuing to make investments for the future.

At our 100th anniversary, my father, Hermann Nunnemacher, wrote that “our dedicated employees, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude, are the foundation in achieving this milestone.” We have experienced tremendous change in 30 years, but that sentiment still rings true – none of our recent successes would be possible without your efforts and dedication. So on behalf of the Board of Directors and Nunnemacher family, thank you to our employees for your energy, commitment, and continued drive to transform this business. And to our customers, thank you for your continued business – we appreciate your loyalty.

Enjoy this time with your families, friends, and loved ones. We look forward to setting new records in 2018, and to our next 130 years of delivering proven engineering solutions.

 

Happy holidays,

Heath A. Nunnemacher

Owner & Director
