In manufacturing, many people play an important role in the overall production process. There are marketers, sales specialists, engineers, purchasing agents, inventory managers, production schedulers, fabricators, welders, painters, assemblers, quality control inspectors, shipping personnel, accountants, customer service representatives, and human resource administrators. A weak link in this process chain can lead to poor product quality, delays in shipments, and safety concerns.
In the waste handling and recycling industry, the job of the welder is one that cannot be overlooked. Quality welding is imperative to the success of the manufacturing process. Because so many products are made to specification, automation of welding can simply not replace the ability of a master craftsman to guarantee the job is done right. High quality welding leads to better reputation, saves time and money, and creates less safety risks for a company’s customers.

Harmony Enterprises recognizes the importance of hiring and retaining quality welders in our production facility. Based in Harmony, MN, our production facility employs 71 people, including 16 experienced and highly-skilled welders. These dedicated professionals work one shift per day and perform a variety of jobs to help us get our large quantity of goods out the door to our loyal customers on time and to specification. In some cases, generations of welders and their relatives have worked the same production floor together!
Quality Welding In Action
An example of a situation in which quality welders are essential to our company’s success is in the production of our popular PERF-SSHB GEN2 Beverage Extraction Baler. This robust baler provides the beverage and bottling industry with a unique solution for their niche market. Out of date beverages pose a multitude of risks to companies if not destroyed of properly. The GEN2 perforates large quantities of aluminum or PET containers, drains the liquid, and then bales the residual commodity into a highly desirable mill-sized bale. This process reduces standard employee FTE’s considerably and creates an additional revenue stream for the end user. Because it provides so many benefits, the PERF-SSHB GEN2 is designed to perform at peak output for a large portion of the standard work day.
In order to build this efficient, high volume extraction baler, many custom sized pieces must be fabricated and welded to exact specifications from early in the process all of the way through the finished product. Any deviation in weld quality, or bending of material, would not allow this intricate machine to perform at its optimum levels. Harmony’s welders assure that each weld is free from flaws, improper alignment, or incorrect profiles. Our quality control inspection process ensures conformity to the highest level of proficiency.
With Harmony Enterprises, our employees truly make the difference. We pride ourselves on employing artisans that produce the highest quality goods for our balers and compactors. We are proud that they continue to enhance our career, community, and culture.
