Keynote Presentation

Kardoes Rubber – A Turnaround Story in Quality and Culture

Presented by Omar Guifarro
General Manager of Kardoes Rubber Co. Inc., LaFayette, Alabama

Omar will describe Kardoes Rubber’s incredible journey starting in 2014 when Hexpol acquired the company. At the time, the plant was suffering from chronic production delays, poor quality, and high turnover. Management’s attitude could be summed up by the following quotes: “Keep running the machines until they break.” “Meetings more than 5 minutes are a waste of time.” “We hire from the from the neck down.” The culture was toxic and corrosive. Today, Kardoes Rubber has come back from the brink. Omar will share the approach and steps he and the team took to turn this plant around.

Workshop

Kardoes’s Unique Communication Approach

Presented by Omar Guifarro
General Manager of Kardoes Rubber Co. Inc., LaFayette, Alabama

Omar will describe Kardoes’s unique communication approach used by the operations team and executive management. Every Friday, an associate from the plant spends 1 hour with an Executive on a video conference call. The goal is to forge stronger relationships between the plant and the C-Suite on a very personal level. The sessions are largely un-scripted, candid, frank, conversational in nature, and incredibly fun. Improve your intra-company relationships with this simple but effective approach.
