If you are a factory owner in Europe, you probably already know that you have your work cut out for you. It’s not exactly a very welcoming environment because, increasingly, a lot of European states are imposing more and more regulations. If you need examples of this, just look at Germany.
Germany used to be the industrial heartland of Western Europe. All the great machines came from there. In fact, even to this very day, people still have a reverence for everything made in Germany because Germans are known for their precision.
They don’t believe in a job half done. They don’t believe in good enough quality. They only believe in excellent quality. Believe it or not, accept it or not, Germans believe in exceptional quality. In other words, their stuff has to always blow away everybody else.
It is not a surprise that when it comes to industrial output, Germany’s products have always commanded a premium. People from all over the world fall over themselves buying German goods. This is due to their dogged and almost maniacal focus on quality, innovation and technological progress. Nothing comes close.
So if you are a manufacturer, you’re under a tremendous amount of pressure because of regulations. Instead of throwing in the towel and just basically quitting, do yourself a big favor and recapture some of that old school European fighting spirit. Instead of letting regulations get the better of you, use it to your advantage.
If the government says that your products have to meet some sort of 80% threshold, use it as a challenge to go to 100%. This way, the rules no longer feel like somebody’s chocking you, but instead, the rules feel like a push. It is an invitation for further excellence. It’s an incentive for your company to be the very best it could be.
I use this as a background because if you have been operating without a Power Plate, you might be thinking that you’re doing just fine. Well, that’s okay if your operation is mediocre. That’s okay if you just want to produce output that is not all that memorable. But if you truly want to be exceptional, and I’m not talking about just merely excellent. I’m talking about exceptional, you need to make sure that you have all the equipment you need to really take the quality of your output to a whole other level.
It’s not enough to dominate your competitors. It’s not enough to make more money than them. You want to swing for the fences. You want to go to the stars, so to speak, when it comes to quality. This is how you build a real business.
