“Bay Point employees are very focused on safety, quality and productivity through initiatives like the Safety Matters campaign, Quality culture events such as ‘Cost of Poor Quality’ reduction and Product Application Show and Tell, to name a few,” says Quality Director Maryam Ravan. “Henkel’s Quality team is dedicated to providing our customers with high-quality products that are 100-percent inspected to customer requirements ensuring we produce safe and reliable products according to civilian and military aviation requirements.”
“Bay Point is proud of its multicultural employee resource group (ERG) that builds awareness of the diverse population and their traditions across our plant,” shares Innovation Project Manager, Rochelle Miller, who is actively involved in the organization. “We meet quarterly and share in some awesome inclusive programming, and our diverse ERG has also driven site-wide education initiatives. For example, a recent event allowed employees from different departments to learn about each other’s functions and their importance in the entire process – from R&D to marketing to quality and shipping.”
Outside the factory, employees are involved in the local community, sponsoring a science and engineering fair, making holiday donations to families in need, and volunteering for the Special Olympics and the Oakland School of Arts, among other activities.
