We began the CTC Program at Kennon Sign Shop, and now we are expanding it to include Kennon Aircraft Covers.
What do manufacturers do when business is slow? Many companies lay-off workers or reduce their hours. This is not the case at Kennon Products, Inc. of Sheridan, Wyoming. The company keeps its qualified team together, happy and secure especially when jobs are scarce.
Kennon uses its excess production capacity to help non-profit organizations with what they need. Capacity to Care is a matching grant program. For every dollar the non-profit spends, it receives two dollars of product or service.
Ron Kensey, the company’s owner explains it this way, “After you make the decision to keep workers employed in a down economy you have to be creative to keep them busy. Our goal is to keep our team productive, sharp and motivated.
The income from Capacity to Care covers the cost of materials and labor but not much more. Yet, it is better than the alternative of sending people home. A big bonus is that each of us feels a sense of pride when we focus our efforts on a cause greater than our own, and that alone adds energy to our business.”
There are a few simple rules. The Capacity to Care program is not for rush orders so as not to interfere with the timely completion of regular projects. The end product must carry the Capacity to Care logo.
