Every company wants to get a slice of the media pie. Some companies post tweets or re-tweets about current events or technical topics, others focus on testifying before Congress on labor or export matters. Acme Wire Products has decided to create a TV show about the crazy life of a small, family run manufacturing company in Connecticut. If shows like “The Office”, “Parks and Recreation” or “Community” can get ratings and media exposure, why can’t a show about hard working, creative employees making custom wire products succeed?
First we had to look at some of the TV shows with names that might be applicable. We came up with the following:
America’s Funniest Videos
Who’s the Boss?
Ripley’s Believe it or Not
Truth or Consequences
Bend it Like Beckwith
One Day at a Time
Each one of the titles had some truth in it. Daily work in manufacturing can be dirty, funny, challenging and most of all, satisfying. We have the opportunity to help our customers – large and small, bring their dreams into reality. Whether we are making a simple wire form or a complex welded assembly, every day is a new adventure and we have to rise to meet it. What would your company’s TV show be called?
