Anthony Soave Encourages Innovation
At The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, visitors can witness many of modern history’s greatest innovations. With exhibits like Henry Ford’s assembly line, Thomas Edison’s light bulb and the Wright brothers’ airplane, even the most casual observer realizes that the pioneers who generated these inventions refused to accept the status quo.
Their vision has made each of our lives far richer. It is this spirit of innovation that Soave team members are encouraged to embrace. In recent years, business people have overused the term “thinking outside the box.” However, the ability to view challenges and opportunities in a fresh way is highly desirable. Original thought motivates us and keeps the companies within Soave Enterprises at the top of their game.
Sometimes the inspired changes are large in scale. At Ferrous Processing & Trading, our team devised the company’s patent pending RamPress system. The result of seeking out a novel solution to a customer’s need, this recently implemented model of innovation allows FPT to offer a more efficient and value-added approach to scrap generators and steel makers in its varied customer base.
In other circumstances, only a slight modification of current methods is needed to stand apart from the competition. Mercedes-Benz of Progress Point, for example, offers at-home consultations to explain the more technical aspects of its clients’ new automobiles. Here, a small innovation created a major customer service enhancement
In past years, the CITY Beverage-Arlington Heights leadership team was struggling to bring two formerly separate companies together and function at peak performance. The design of a novel incentive for the sales team, as well as the guts and tenacity of both employees and leadership, ultimately reversed the negative trends and put the company on track for outstanding results.
In this situation, innovation helped motivate. Throughout Soave Enterprises, many of our companies enjoy the position of market leader. Maintaining this placement requires a company-wide respect for and active nurturing of innovation. Since our founding in 1961, the Soave team has viewed obstacles as opportunities and sought unconventional solutions to the toughest challenges. Let’s continue our own history of embracing and encouraging innovation. Like the inspirational innovators at The Henry Ford, let’s all dare to innovate.
The results might just surprise you.
