Katy Spring hit the 2million dollar annual revenue mark in 2002.

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

From the story of Katy Spring…

Katy Spring hit the 2million dollar annual revenue mark in 2002.  By now the company was growing at a steady pace and approaching the 5 year mark of being in business, a milestone for small businesses that many say the chances of survival increase dramatically after 5 years.

In 2002 the company would move to its new location, the fourth location located on the Katy Freeway, also known as Interstate 10, the freeway that stretches from Tallahassee, Florida to Los Angeles, California.

The timing of the move was important to production as “The Barn” had become way too small for one of Katy’s fastest growing companies.  The Morton Road location was only 2500 square feet.  Compared to the second location on Highway 90 Boulevard is was twice as big, so the owners signed a 3 year lease thinking it was plenty of room.  By early 2002, they were already stretching the walls.

“I can remember coming to work, and the first thing we did after we opened the shop, was move material, equipment, and anything else we weren’t using for the day out to the parking lot so we had room to work,” Mark recalls

Anticipated release date 2015.

Story of Katy Spring

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

With the growth in 2003, the need for talent grew too.  Like other specialized positions and skills, spring makers are not readily available.  Since the beginning, Katy Spring is a proponent of promoting and training from within, and that worked well in the early in the company’s history.  The two owners with spring-making experience; James and Mark were spending a lot of time in the shop making springs, they were also training at the same time.

The level of business in 2003 required the owners to take on more of a management role in the office, leaving a busy shop with recently-trained-spring employees to produce springs, who had very little or no time to train more spring manufacturing talent.

“It takes at least 5 years of spring making on auto-coilers to really have a decent foundation in spring making.  We had to look for outside talent,” said James.

Katy Spring, for the most part used traditional recruiting methods to seek new talent for making springs.  One that was not so traditional involved a previous employee of James’ from a former spring company that we shall call “Brad.”

One of the areas that Katy Spring struggled in was “fine wire” products or springs made out of wire under .020”.  Brad was a twenty plus-year spring maker who could easily make fine wire springs and many other springs, the problem was that Brad didn’t want to move to Texas from his home state of Minnesota.  So after some discussions with Brad, the owners decided to open; “Katy Spring of Minnesota”….read more.  Look for the release of “The Story of Katy Spring” coming soon.
