Commenting on the announcement, Kevin Mauger, President and former 'sole owner' of NCC, said, "Our company is built on the positive culture and energy of our team creating an environment that supports a positive Customer Experience with the speed and agility required to compete in today's market.  The ESOP will give our employees a financial interest in the continued growth and success of the business, creating even more of a team effort and vested interest in supporting our customers than we have today. It represents a very tangible way to reward those who have played a critical role in NCC's success. Delivering an unparalleled positive experience requires great employees who are focused and dedicated to the business at hand. That clearly describes our team, and we are thrilled to be able to provide this benefit to them.  We want them to stay around forever and be rewarded accordingly for their efforts.  We are not looking to be just another company, we have far greater goals and aspirations. We are reaching for the stars." Mauger, who will continue in his current position for the foreseeable future, also noted: "In light of the challenges facing American workers, an ESOP is an excellent way in which to assure the continuation of our world-class team of valued employees, and enhance our company's productivity and profitability. We expect the ESOP to increase the retirement security of our Employee Owners, particularly if we continue on the growth path we have enjoyed the last several years." Jim Steiker, Chairman and CEO of SES  Advisors and with more than 30 years of experience accomplishing ESOP transactions, said: "ESOP's  done well and for the right reasons, allow business owners both to do well and can be both an altruistic and humanitarian approach to a collective win-win business environment. Employee ownership can add an exclamation point to an already strong business and create an even more engaged culture. Employees potentially have strong financial rewards when they retire in exchange for their hard work and dedication throughout their careers.  An ESOP appears to be a perfect fit for NCC and should result in extremely positive results for all involved.  I was extremely impressed with Kevin from our first meeting--he is a poster child for the kind of servant leader that creates a great employee-owned company. He believes in his people and the team approach and using the ESOP to make a great company even better."

Assembly Automation | Year: 2011

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to review the Promat Show (material handling) and the Automate Show (robots and vision) run jointly in Chicago with emphasis on new automation innovations for packing and order filling applications. Design/methodology/approach - In-depth interviews with exhibitors of material handling automation which addresses packing and order filling. Findings - Mobile robots have come of age with multiple vendors offering units for handling goods. Delta robots have found a niche in quick handling of packing and order assembly. Practical implications - Customers will have to begin thinking of mobile robots as much more autonomous and self-guiding for goods handling in the warehouse. Logistics customers need to examine the abilities of the delta style robot to do more and faster picking and packing than ever before. Originality/value - The paper provides an expert insight into how automation innovation continues to reduce cost, improve accuracy and speed of logistics and order filling. © 2011 Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Design/methodology/approach - In-depth interviews with exhibitors of automated assembly and manufacturing technology. Findings - Building of production machinery continues to move toward offering automated assembly or production cells and away from building single purpose metal cutting machinery. Robots are married to machine tools for much more than just tending. Originality/value - The paper shows that users in almost any manufacturing realm will find that automated manufacturing technologies are now addressing all types of production requirements. No longer it is necessary to think that only million off part runs can be produced in an automated manner. Machine tool builders are including testing, finishing, marking, assembly and other secondary operations within the basic machining unit for a wide range of production volumes. Automation can even be applied to "made to order" type production. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

Design/methodology/approach - In-depth interviews with builders and system integrators of automation equipment and conferring with users of robotics as well as attendance at conferences and trade shows addressing these topics. Findings - Originally robots addressed only "heavy lifting" applications where cost and flexibility were very secondary considerations. Today users are looking to deploy robotic automation into all types of manufacturing and other applications where lower cost, two-armed flexibility and ease of programming are some of the very important considerations. Robotics are making manufacturers more competitive and growing thus creating more jobs, not costing jobs. Practical implications - Customers may be surprised at the automation innovations and new applications which are appearing in the workplace and how easy they are to implement and deploy. Originality/value - A review of and insight into some of the latest automation rapid deployment innovations and applications that have appeared recently as well as demonstrations of automation application at recent trade shows. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
