West on the Road Clearwater Episode 2 Experience and Dedication Results in Excellence
As a leading manufacturer of packaging components and delivery systems for injectable drugs and healthcare products, we know that what we do has a direct impact on the health and well-being of our global community. In the second installment of West On The Road at our Clearwater, Florida plant, our employees talk about how knowing the impact they’re making on the delivery of healthcare fuels the collaborative dedication at the facility. As one colleague said, “When I’m going home, I go with a satisfaction…I know that I did something that will make a difference in somebody’s life.”
Coupling this passion for helping others with hundreds of years of collective experience at our Clearwater plant is largely what makes it a special place to work, and a place where colleagues can feel proud of the work that they’re doing. Many of the employees in Clearwater have been with West for more than 20 years.
Continuous improvement is deeply rooted in the culture at Clearwater – and West as a whole – and as Andy Phillips, Director of Operations, highlights, a key component of this is fostering constant information-sharing and collaboration. At Clearwater, there are systems in place to ensure that everyone’s ideas are recognized and utilized whenever possible to make improvements.
After all, notes Andy, “We all understand that we are making products that are making a difference in the world.”
