Our office will be closed on
Monday Dec 25th, 2017 and Monday, Jan 1, 2018

This has been a busy year for us and we want to Thank You for your continued support. Of most notable achievement this past year was the building and upstart of 2 new Rotational Molding Machines. Not only did we have to get these machines built quickly (the machines arrived in pieces and our team built them from the ground up), but we also had to put ourselves on the fast-track to learn and utilize these machines.

It has been a challenge and we have some pretty great Peabody Team Members who have bumped it up a notch and done what was needed to take care of business. This stems all the way from our Customer Service department, to our Engineering Department, to our Production Floor, to our Shipping Department and the unsung departments that do their part to keep us moving forward. It has been all hands on deck and everyone working together to take Peabody Engineering to the next level of Manufacturing and Distributing great Peabody Products.

 

We are now able to make larger capacity Gemini Dual Containment® Tanks and ProChem® Tanks.

If you attended either the AWT or WEFTEC shows this past year you got the chance to see our 1,300 Gallon Gemini Dual Containment® Tank with assorted fittings

 

 

This year we have also came out with:

Peabody Engineering was honored to be nominated in the Small Company Category for The Top Workplace Awards for the entire Inland Empire Region of California and we placed 7th, there were a lot of great companies that we were up against. We are very proud of our Great Team and Great Company Culture.

Thanksgiving 2017 – We Hope You Enjoy This Years Thanksgiving Letter.

Our office will be closed on Nov 23rd and 24th, 2017.

Way back in the Mid-1500’s, North America was sparsely populated by indigenous people, natives, who led a tribal existence based upon hunting, fishing and farming. At the time, stronger tribes would routinely raid the weaker tribes, taking their resources and enslaving the survivors of the skirmishes, usually only 25% to 40%, the rest perishing in the conflict on both sides. For the most part, the “foreign conquerors” at the time were primarily Spanish and primarily in the Southern portion of the continent and south into Central America, where they had their hands full with the Aztecs and Mayans, who controlled the region.

At the same time in Europe, King Henry the VIII and his wife Catherine had a baby girl named Mary and Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation in Wittenberg Germany, breaking away from the Catholic Church and spawned a movement of a desire for freedom of worship without the dogma and tradition of the Roman Catholic rulers of the day. The English Monarchy established the Church of England as the official religion of their people and mandated all British citizens to follow their tenets and customs, which looked very much like what the Catholics did to cause the Reformation to begin with. Enter the Separatists (also known as the Pilgrims) who wanted nothing to do with that church……Read the full Peabody Engineering Thanksgiving newsletter by clicking here. It is in PDF format (3.93mb)

Here are some of the comments we received on him from his fellow Team Members for G.E.M. Going the Extra Mile:

Frank Avila
Frank embodies the true Peabody Spirit, putting the team first and doing whatever it takes to make us look great. He has been doing this for 25 years, quietly doing a great job and helping make us better each and every day.

Frank Avila
Frank has stepped in and learned the mechanical aspects of the new machines and has given good insight making the installs run smooth. He has helped the Rotoline technician a lot. Stepping up and filling in for Tom as machine mechanic has allowed little to no delay on the more mechanical aspects to the new machines. Because of his help the machines are being installed faster – Thanks for the help!!!

Frank Avila
I would like to take this opportunity to nominate Frank Avila. Frank has contributed an extraordinary amount of time in the intricate assembly of all the parts to build the new machines. Frank also has exhibited his amazing electrical and mechanical talents during the installation from ground zero to completion. I appreciate his enthusiastic dedication to the Peabody’s success. He defines the definition what going the extra mile means.

Frank Avila
He is quiet but he is mighty! He is truly an exceptional mechanic who for this past month has put his abilities to excellent use by helping to build the 2 new rotational machines Peabody got. From the bottom to the very tipy top Frank has been involved in every aspect and he should be very proud of what he has accomplished. I have seen him all over both machines non-stop and full force to get these machines up and running.

He is a dedicated and hardworking man and he has always given 100% in what he does not only in this endeavor but whatever is asked of him.

I like working with Paul. He is easy to discuss ideas with and he is a good Team Player, He does a great job making molds for the telecom department. In my experience, he pays close attention to detail. Paul is an individual you want as part of your team. I know if a request is made of him that he will get it done and it will be done satisfactory.

Paul Ruiz
Whenever I look out onto the warehouse floor I can always spot Paul hard at work. He puts his heart and soul into whatever project he is working on. Presenting his very best work which is not only a reflection of the company but a reflection of who he is, what he has helped to create and the integrity of him.

If he sees me in the warehouse he always asks if there is something he can help me with. Very polite man. He will work in any department and does what is asked of him. This is a man that takes pride in his work. He smiles all day hot or cold and he encourages others (team mates, new-hires, temps) etc.

Fourth of July

America The Beautiful – Happy Fourth of July 2017

By | General | No Comments

Independence Day, The Fourth of July, A day in the midst of summer vacation with picnics, bake sales, fireworks, parades with marching bands, squirt gun and water balloon fights, baseball games and barbeques. A day we spend with family and friends and build fond memories. A day that children rank right up there with Christmas. A time of Summer Vacations, first kisses, carnivals and pie eating contests.

All of that makes it a special and memorable day of glee, free of the cares of the world and all about letting our hair down and having fun. Here in 2017 though, we seldom remember what it is REALLY about. Independence Day is when we celebrate the signing of The Declaration of Independence, that set in motion the birth of the Greatest Nation in human history; The United States of America.

The Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights and the Constitution were God-inspired documents written at a time when Godly people who boldly forged out a new civilization in the wilds of a new world and gained a foothold on an untamed land through hard work and great sacrifice, faced oppression from a government detached and unconcerned about the welfare of the very people who risked everything to make a better life for themselves, their families and future generations.

The King of England at the time, fondly referred to as “Mad King George III”, decided that America belonged to him and he desired to control his subjects and benefit from their toil with nothing for them in return. He would send his minions, the enlisted who donned Red Coats, to lord over the citizens of the 13 colonies, cruel men who would routinely bust into innocent people’s homes and ransack their properties, taking what they pleased, and beating or even murdering those who put up resistance. The conditions were severe and the colonials were wearied from the treatment they received, without a voice in government representing them and their interests.

Then came the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back; The king instituted a 3% tax on tea. Enough was enough and the Colonials, led by George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and others had had enough. They revolted.
