HSI receives governor's leadership award

CHICKASHA —

HSI Sensing (Hermetic Switch, Inc.) is one of four Oklahoma companies recently honored by the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance (OMA) with the 2013 Governor’s Manufacturing Leadership Award. Lt. Gov Todd Lamb presented the award October 9 during the 2013 Oklahoma Conference on Manufacturing at the Reed Center in Midwest City.

According to the OMA, each year the governor bestows awards on a select few Oklahoma manufacturers in recognition of their pacesetting standards. The award-winning companies must be progressive, forward-thinking and willing to adapt to change to become more successful in their marketplace.

“They represent the enormous potential available in Oklahoma and take a leadership role in promoting the importance of doing business in and from our state,” says OMA president Chuck Prucha.

HSI Sensing president Ryan Posey says he’s “thrilled” to be recognized by the governor and by the Oklahoma Manufacturing Alliance. “Their organization has a made a significant and lasting mark on the operations of this company. We’re extremely grateful for that impact, and for their recognition with this year’s award.”

“OMA introduced us to their Lean Manufacturing program about five years ago,” explains David Posey, HSI’s chief executive officer and father to Ryan Posey. The program is described by OMA as a systematic approach designed to eliminate waste, streamline operations, and create flow throughout the whole company.

“Because of it, we’ve seen at least a 20 percent increase in efficiencies in our manufacturing processes,” says the elder Posey, “which has meant better service to our customers, not to mention a tremendous impact to our bottom line.”

Headquartered in Chickasha, Oklahoma, HSI Sensing (Hermetic Switch, Inc.) is the innovative leader in the engineering and precision manufacturing of custom reed switch and sensor technology. The industry experts in solving problems for customers in challenging design applications, they also precision manufacture those solutions to ensure consistent, unmatched quality.
