Bob Thompson was named Facilities Manager at Fountain Electric in September 2019. As Facilities Manager, Bob oversees the warehouse and mechanics' production. In addition, Bob oversees Fountain Electric's IT Department, online sales, and construction services.
Bob graduated from NC State with a degree in Wood Science and Technology. He came to Fountain Electric with 36 years of manufacturing experience in furniture and cabinetry production, as well as management experience at the department level through plant manager.
Bob's strategy is, "Make it better every day." He incorporates the SPQRC board to accomplish this task. This system highlights deficiencies and what the team needs to work on, as well as the overall productivity of each day. The team knows on a daily basis if they had a good day or one that needs improvement and where the opportunities for improvement exist.
Micah Wilmoth, Warehouse manager at Fountain Electric, has this to say about Bob Thompson. "Bob has done a great job showing me how to teach my team accountability and use it in everyday processes. He has definitely changed my thought process in leadership."
We welcome Bob to Fountain Electric and are grateful for the management and leadership experience he has brought with him. We expect productivity to continually improve with Bob using his skills to teach others the best way to work together and improve processes.
