Helping Your Business Be Better

Product Development

Here at RMF, our goal is to help your business be better to make you be better.

What that means for our clients is, we want to make your business better by ensuring the most efficient design, providing short lead times and delivering the utmost quality. By making your business better, we will make you a superior facilitator and reliable business leader.

The RMF mission also ties into our workplace culture. Our employees share the company values, beliefs and care for our clients overall success. Which is why we created The S.M.I.L.E. Program. This program maintains peer-to-peer and multilevel appreciation within our company in order to benefit our employees and customers. The SMILE program gives appreciation and recognition for teamwork, quality, attitude and willingness to help. The acronym SMILE (Specific, Meaningful, Immediate, Linked, and Enthusiastic) serves as a guide to craft appreciation. To “SMILE” at someone we could make a verbal acknowledgment, write an appreciative note, lend a hand, or maybe leave a treat on their desk. We want our employees to know how much we appreciate their work and maintain our mission to help your business be better.

Give RMF a “SMILE” by visiting our website (www.rm-f.com) or calling us at (262) 554-1140!

Kids Love Custom Metal – Especially When Its A New Playground

fun-metalThe sheet metal industry can be a little rough around the edges sometimes. No pun intended. We’re always having fun, but not always getting to work on fun playgrounds like the one featured in “The Fabricator” this month. Click here to read the article. It’s the story of a custom metal fabricator in NY that built an amazing rooftop playground in metro New York.

For a more traditional look at the kind of sheet metal RMF is working on, check out our latest project below. We were lucky enough to do a collaborative Kaizen with our client early in the product development process where we took out 20% of the parts required, and reduced the space needed for packaging by 50%.assembly-housing-ds-combined It was a successful project and we always love a challenge.
