The dunk tank was a favorite with our shop foreman Mike Poelzer being a great sport in the tank.  Much appreciated by Firland employees and Fircrest residents.


2014 Q1 Quality Award Goes to Firland

Boeing management presented the Boeing Q1 Quality Performance Award trophy to Firland on April 28, 2014.  Firland was the highest performing CMP shop for all of Boeing shops.  Along with the trophy which is proudly displayed in the Firland trophy case Boeing presented every Firland employee with a Boeing insignia drinking cup.  Boeing management praised the significant  efforts by every Firland employee to have shipped over 60,000 parts in Q1 with out a single Escape.


Sam Adrian, Scott Kneeland, Michael Pence, Mike Poelzer and Don Blem accepted the award from Boeing.


Firland employees got a chance to hear the positive Boeing feedback and see their trophy.  The challenge is on to see if we can win again next quarter!!


Boeing management commented on the amount of effort it takes to have “no escapes” for a full quarter.  Takes effort from everyone and both companies working together for improvements.

Firland  management followed  the presentation by Boeing management by hosting a great Bar-B-Q luncheon for all employees and Boeing participants.
