The RPW/Elite Family wishes you and yours a Happy and Fun Filled Thanksgiving with your families!
Both RPW and Elite will be shut down on Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after to allow our employees to enjoy this long weekend with their family.
We will be up and running full steam ahead on Monday the 27th. Our Christmas schedule will include being off on the 25th and 26th and we will have limited services on the 27th through 29th as we do heavy maintenance on all of our lines. We will be off on the 1st of January and then be fresh and ready for a NEW YEAR starting on the 2nd. We sincerely hope that you have time during these holidays to enjoy what is most important to you. We pray you and yours have a most Blessed Christmas and a Joyous New Year!!!!
Shuffling the Deck at RPW/Elite
Scott Alberti is taking over the Sales Position and Atiya Hasan is Handling the Scheduling
Roberto Flores has moved onto a new position in a new company so we decided to make a few new moves at RPW/Elite.
Scott Alberti who has been doing our scheduling for the last couple of years is moving into the sales position. This is not new to Scott as he has done this before for RPW. Scott has been in plating and polishing for most of his work career and has a lot of knowledge to help our customers with their finishing needs.
Atiya Hasan has run our HR Dept for many years and has an excellent knack for organizing and keeping things running well. We know she is the right person to run the scheduling department as she is very good at communicating and getting the information to the right people and following up to make sure things are going as planned. She will be a great asset to our new customer service group.
2018 Schedule of Events
February Plating Classes – Every Friday in February from Noon – 3:30
Our plating classes are designed to help Customer Service, Engineers, Designers, Salesmen and women, as well as, Purchasers and Product Managers. This class will help anyone who needs more information on how plating is done and what plating can do. We start with a quick introduction and video with commentary of the plating process while we eat our lunch. We follow this with a plant tour with hands on looks at all of the equipment, including the lab. Back to the classroom for information on cost drivers, design issues, plating properties and capabilities, polishing and vibratory finishing information and a show and tell on hard to finish parts. Classes fill up quick and we can only accommodate 20 per class and they almost always are full.
March Zombie Shoot – Time and Date TBD – The Shooters Sport Center in Racine, WI
This is by far our most fun event, we are limited to 15 guests and everything you need to kill Zombie targets will be provided. We spend 2 hours at The Shooters Sport Center in Racine shooting targets with everything from 22LR rifles to 12 ga semi auto shotguns. This is always a great time. If you have weapons you want to shoot you are welcome to bring them. This range only allows pistol caliber rounds (No rifle rounds or .50 cal handguns). Call your RPW/Elite Rep to get on this list the sooner the better.
St Joseph Academy Golf Outing – July 16th – 11am Registration, Noon Tee Time, 5pm Happy Hour, 6pm Dinner/Auction/Raffle
This golf outing is for our favorite charity and a charity that our family has helped for over 50 years. We absolutely love to help the Sisters of St Francis in their quest to help children (mostly at risk or poor children) get the Christian education that will lift them up to better things as they grow up. We love that our friends, customers and suppliers all help us in this quest. Please join us this year, you will leave the event with a smile and a warm feeling in your heart.
