Consistent Quality Wins


Dalton’s ability to consistently craft custom made to order heaters is

one of the reasons Dalton continues to win at customers. Since I

arrived 16 months ago, I have seen us compete and win against low cost,

low quality heaters despite our higher price per cartridge. 


This week we had two situations where seam sealing customers were

frustrated with low-cost conventional heaters.   One customer had to

scrap many heaters due to lead wire failure during installation and another

was unable to achieve a stable, consistent seam seal.  We won the

business at both customers because of our high quality construction and

due to our unique continuous coil design. 


Of course, Dalton’s Watt-Flex® continuous coil design provides unmatched

even heat in sealing bar applications.  However, it is our production team’s

attention to details that ensures our customers get the highest quality

custom crafted heater that makes the real difference.


It is our dedicated team of assembly and production workers that give

us the edge against competition. They are the unsung heroes.  They

take great pride in the job they do and the company overall.  They are

the ones responsible for our high quality, consistent, reliable,

performance that we have all come to rely on.   


On this St. Patrick’s weekend, I tip my hat in appreciation to the

men and women of Dalton who deliver on our promise of making the

world’s best heater.




  Friday Fun Facts

March 17 is widely accepted as the date of St. Patrick’s death in A.D. 461.

St. Patrick was born in Britain as Maewyn Succat. At age 16, he was

kidnapped from his home on the west coast and carried off to Ireland to

become a slave. After six years, he escaped. Upon returning home,

he spent the next 15 years preparing for his missionary work. When

he became a priest, his name was changed to Patricius,

and eventually, Patrick.


Interestingly, St Patrick was known for wearing blue.  He used the

shamrock to demonstrate how “the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit”

could be separate entities, yet one in the same.  Today, many people

associate the shamrock as representing Ireland, in fact the harp is the

symbol of Ireland.


Armed with these fun facts, let us celebrate this weekend to honor

St. Patrick.  Savor the boiled corned beef dinner.  Be swept up in the

Celtic music and toast this acclaimed patron saint of the emerald Isle.
