New people, New Building! This was the FIRST time the team was together to see the new building. We did a tour showing everyone all corners of the 22,000 square foot warehouse. This is the week before we officially move in the entire company! We discussed everybody being ready for changing systems & a new chapter in company history. Operation Manager Kevin Erdmann, who has been doing an incredible job leading the team, got up to speak about the important of attendance going forward. Everybody asked a question or made a comment. The questions ranged from paid time off to where Sean would take the team on a company retreat. He said Mt. Everest for a team building activity. The company is so lucky to have incredible people working hard for a bright future.

The 4th Quarter is always our busiest time of the year. The business is doing better than ever before in 2020, and we couldn’t do it without the team. This quarter we were named to the Inc. 5000’s list of fastest growing private companies in America! We are already past last years total sales, and we’re very excited about the future of United Monograms and beyond!
We just had our Q3 Company Meeting and it was great to have the team together! We didn’t have a meeting last quarter because of the virus, so we were definitely due to get together and get the team on the same page.
We discussed many important things after taking our traditional team selfie (everyone was smiling under their masks!) It’s always so great to get the team together, especially when we have new team members. We looked back at the beginning of the year where we discussed growing the business into 2020, and we’re happy to say that our revenue is up 41% compared to the first half of 2019! We also discussed hiring an operations manager that we now have on board.
Our main goal is for Chad Sponseller, the Operations Manager, to be able to run the show. This entails handling the many details involved in getting all of our orders out the door to our customers with the best quality, and in the quickest time possible. We have made some progress towards this but still have a way to go. We’re excited about getting to this point in Q3. Once this is accomplished we can start building a serious powerhouse sales division.
As always, we appreciate the hard work of our employees, and let them know the company would be nothing without them. If everyone can care about the company, it will make all the difference in continuing making our company special. We need people to step up and become leaders in the company!
We went over the importance of being able to change quickly, and how that’s a huge advantage we can have as a smaller company (for now!). We’re ready for big things to happen in 2020 & Beyond!
