Our partner is a southern California based commercial powder coating company. Their primary operation includes large scale powder coating of military equipment, airline parts, commercial equipment and maritime equipment. Our partner services the US Department of the Navy, Halliburton, Boeing and other industrial partners.
Our partner started as a small industrial powder coating company in 1989 and grew to a respectable 15 employees that included office, warehouse, powder coaters and ownership. In 1998 the company added a large scale partner with Boeing and grew to approximately 30 employees. And in the aftermath of September 11th, the company earned a multi-year contract with the Department of Defense (DoD) to powder coat military equipment intended to be used in combat operations.
The effect was as follows:
This partner used a consultant to win the bids, however they quickly found themselves over committed and under prepared beyond the general functions of a small company. Additionally, a moderate injury involving a chemical burn fell through the cracks and was not reported to the state. This caused many disputable facts regarding the injury to be dismissed as the legal time frame for denials or challenges had passed. As a result of the oversight, our partner was subject to numerous additional penalties. In fact, Boeing placed the partner on probation and gave them 90 days to implement change citing contractual obligations.
UniqueHR entered into a Client Services Agreement with our partner and the following course of action took place.
The partner grew its employee base and became compliant with HR and risk regulations.
