Came standing by its employees with 125,000 Euro in vouchers

19 October 2022

Came has decided to pay its employees a bonus totalling 125,000 Euro in vouchers in order to combat the high cost of living.

At a very difficult time when rising living costs affect everyone indiscriminately, straining household budgets, Came has decided to give its employees concrete support to contribute to the expenses resulting from the high cost of living.

Together with the September 2022 pay slip, the company paid each employee a bonus of 350 Euro in the form of vouchers to make the bonus easy to use.

As always, Came’s goal is to develop its team and keep it united, and takes tangible steps to prove it: this bonus demonstrates the value that Came wants to place on the human and professional heritage of its team.

Came meetings to involve the team

30 September 2022

Came puts great weight on a sense of corporate belonging and sharing information among the corporate population.

We want each of our employees to feel part of the great Came team.

Therefore, following a request from staff during the 2021 corporate climate review, we decided to organise regular meetings with staff to share company issues that are considered important at the time.

The moment of sharing we conceived creates a direct channel of communication between Owners, General Management, Management and the entire corporate population, where we talk about business strategy, projects involving part or all of the company and its national and international reference context.

We organised the first round of meetings with the staff just before the summer break, on July 21 and 28, at the Parish Theatre in San Pietro Mussolino.

In over an hour, we discussed topics such as the socio-economic context in which Came operates today, the importance of compliance with occupational safety and environmental regulations, the results of business climate analysis, the new Came brand, and business strategies for the future.

The meeting was well received by the staff who attended, with very positive feedback on how these kinds of meetings are useful and functional.

Came now has almost 360 employees and is structuring itself as a large company. Without such a moment, we risk losing the closeness the Owners and Management have with the company population and, above all, reducing the flow of information about business performance and the innovations introduced.

For Came, being a team is a great source of pride and underpins so much that we do every day.

This appointment, which will become a habitual part of annual corporate life, will always go in this direction, with the aim of making our employees increasingly aware of the corporate context in which they live every day.

The benefits of the Came prime contractor service

1 July 2022

Through its organizational structure and know-how built up over 45 years of experience with the various production businesses among its customers, Came can provide some very useful services to optimize the times and costs of supplying electric motor components.

One of these is without doubt that of  prime contractor.

Through this service, a customer can entrust Came with managing the complete supply of all essential electric motor components.
A good example of this is provided by one of our customers, a leading company in the gearmotor sector in an international group.

As is often the case, this project was the result of a customer need. The customer had indicated that it needed to entrust procurement of the various components in its product to a single supplier, for three main reasons:

  • To concentrate procurement of multiple components from many suppliers on one, with clear benefits in timing and ease of interfacing
  • To entrust the burden of procurement to a financially reliable partner able to purchase a range of components from several suppliers and then supply them to a single customer
  • To concentrate its efforts on manufacturing and selling its motors

 
Therefore, based on the Came team’s professionalism in defining prices and supply chains, the customer passed the agreements with the various stamping plants and shaft manufacturers to Came.
Came can deal for the customer not only with the winding, where it is the leading European manufacturer, but also with production of die-cast aluminium components as casings, shields, flanges, terminal board covers.

Last but not least among the things that make up Came’s prime contractor service, is inserting the wound stators into the casings.

To complete the list of services associated with the role of prime contractor, there is the Came logistics service, which allows us to produce the product in advance and deliver it when the customer sends the purchase order.

It is clear why the customer has entrusted implementation of these elements, whether they be products or services, to Came: our company can guarantee an all-round supply to the final customer, exploiting our professionalism and experience to simplify the customer’s life.

Development of the human capital in Came

23 June 2022

The international market poses a significant challenge to companies in relation to competitiveness. This makes it necessary to implement a business strategy oriented towards innovation and internationalisation of skills.

Came will not be caught off guard and has prepared an annual training plan that is in line with the main market trends. In fact, the company is always ready to meet market challenges, and innovation and internationalisation are at the core of the 2022 training strategy.

Digital innovation means integrating increasingly advanced computer systems into our work, and training personnel on these systems is the basis for using them correctly and making the most of all their available features and potential. At the same time, Came is investing in innovating working processes by analysing where operating flows can be updated and improved, and identifying which methodologies and tools are the most appropriate to adopt.

Regarding internationalisation, training courses on international managerial skills and language training are planned for 2022. Specifically, Came will invest in the language skills of its personnel on a large scale, with particular focus on the resources who communicate with our international customers and suppliers on a daily basis. The investment will not be limited to English, but in some cases language skills in German and Spanish will also be enhanced.

There will also be continuous training to update work-related expertise, especially with a view to inter-departmental interchangeability within the company, and training on the Safety, Environment and Quality management systems used in the company.
Came’s focus on the quality of its products and customer service remains a cornerstone for which there is always investment in external training and internal support.

The values of the Came team: teamwork, expertise, sharing, comparison, trust, responsibility

12 May 2022

Help each other and respect each other, be a team, meet challenges for the good of the company and our customers.

I’m starting this article with what in my opinion is one of Came’s most important values, which represents the human value of our company more than any other: collaboration and group spirit.

The current historical period puts us under strain and stress every day, and risks pushing us toward individualism, loneliness and selfishness. We at Came believe that the team adds value to achieve any goal and grow continually in the market.

Why did Came decide to focus on the team?  What are the benefits?

  • Teamwork allows a continuous exchange of information, knowledge and expertise.
  • Circular expertise is a key aspect in measuring the value of any company.
  • At Came, there are frequent moments in which company departments and the different roles within them can share and align with each other.
  • Comparing ideas and points of view helps identify the best solutions to problems so that the team can implement them much faster and more effectively. It also allows the decisions taken to be shared, resulting in greater professional motivation.

 
With circular expertise and sharing of ideas, we accomplish projects and developments that are more complete, richer and of greater strategic value.

The awareness of being a competent and close team is fundamental. Extending individual responsibilities to the whole team and distributing activities in a clear and homogeneous manner reduces our working pressure and allows us to efficiently and effectively achieve company goals.

The mission of creating a lasting relationship of trust and partnership with our customers is primarily pursued internally by maintaining and developing a relationship of trust between colleagues and between departments. The resulting internal partnership is the reason why none of us in Came feel alone, but part of a winning team, ready to face the challenges that await us in our future together.

We co-designed a new hydraulic pump motor with the client

5 May 2022

In 2020, a global leader in the construction of hydraulic pumps asked Came to design a new type of winding for a high-efficiency pump with stringent tolerance, CSR and technical specification requirements.

The project took all of Came’s experience and know-how in the combination of die casting and winding to solve the technical challenge of an innovative and complex product.

During its two years, the project required a strong focus on designing the die casting for the Mec 90-112-132 motor sizes, for which 4 die castings and 9 different windings had to be designed while combining the design requirements with Came’s production needs.

The whole Came team was involved in close collaboration with the client’s team, working with continual technical alignments. The project required real integration between the two companies as the teams had to follow the detailed project Gantt chart.

We offered the client an innovative insulation sealing process, which included the use of new foam technology to optimize product assembly and reduce production costs.

Came’s role was also that of project leader, with the management of the wound stator supply and the various external phases needed to obtain the finished assembly.

Here we summarise the benefits that the client gained from working with Came:
– Complete technical consultancy
– Reliable dedicated work team
– Co-design of die castings and windings
– Smaller supply chain
– Product cost savings

The synergy between Came and the client was a success and demonstrates that teamwork, values and know-how are necessary to achieve significant results.

Came’s investments in sustainability

24 March 2022

At Came we focus on sustainability in two main directions:

1) Our products and services help our customers transition to sustainable products by adopting electric motors over fossil-fuel alternatives. We support this by offering a wide range of flexible co-innovation services that can be adapted to any customer. The more flexible we are, the more we support the energy transition.

2) Our activities improve continuously because sustainability is not something we can achieve immediately, but is a constant process made up of numerous interlinked steps.

Our efforts for operational sustainability

For several years we have adopted a strategy of continuous innovation and investment in critical areas, but this will be strengthened in the near future.

We will make significant investments in two large areas:
1) Updating machinery,
2) Environmental impact management and reduction (waste reduction, water recovery, photovoltaic expansion).

We need to make these efforts to become increasingly eco-sustainable.

We also work hard to create a sustainability culture among employees, customers, communities and the public administration through open and transparent communication.

That is how we can discover and solve challenges quickly and stay ahead of the curve.

A practical example is our collaboration with one customer, a world leader in hydraulic pump production, through the ECOVADIS Sustainability project of which we are a partner and through which we analysed our company’s level of sustainability.

We will also attain ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certification by the end of June 2022, both of which are important in relation to Total Sustainability.

Overall, sustainability is a strategic goal for us, our customers, our team and our community. To achieve it, we need to invest continuously so that we can innovate and collaborate.

The sales team dedicated to Came customers

3 March 2022

To meet the increasing demands for technology and innovation expressed by end users, today’s market counts on increasing skill levels from all operators in the value chain.

In Came, there has been a significant increase in consulting services over the last two years, resulting in a greater transfer of expertise to enrich knowledge and develop the highest-performance products.

Exchanges of information and know-how are no longer limited to Research and Development, but permeate throughout the company. In fact, effective solutions have to be found in all stages of the project, from the first approach right up to after sales.

Came has invested in its Sales Team over the last two years, with new resources, training and work organisation. Currently Cinzia, Sales Manager, and Fabrizio and Omar, Area Managers, carry out a preliminary project analysis to immediately identify the best supply options, which also contributes to updating the customer on market trends and innovations. The quotation management process also exploits the professionalism of Alessandro and Alice, who also use digital communication internal systems to optimise the times needed to calculate estimates and generate quotations.

Today, every customer can count on a dedicated technical-sales service to ensure faster development of new projects and continually provide information on market trends, raw materials and innovations in the sector.

For Came, customised consulting is a winning asset to continuously improve the quality of its output. The sales team will therefore specialise by customer in the future. An in-depth knowledge of the customer’s needs is key to bringing innovation by customising the product/service system so that it delivers the best performance in terms of market competitiveness.

The Came Customer Service department also follows the same philosophy of customised consulting. Its reference people are continually connected to the Came Sales Team, with the aim of giving customers a continuous customised service.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2022!

22 December 2021

The Came team wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2022.

2021 was a year of great goals, investments and changes for Came, and among these we want to remember the most significant:

The expansion of our Die-Casting plant leading to improved delivery speed and operational flexibility
– The launch of new R&D services with numerous benefits for our customers
Compliance with the IATF 16949 management system which allowed Came to enter the automotive world

For 2022 we want to go beyond these goals, always guided by our values of customer care, innovation, and sustainability.

We wish you happy holidays by reminding you that we will close from Thursday 23 December 2021 until Monday 3 January 2022.

Came services to give the customer solutions

28 October 2021

We are going through a period of profound change in the electric motor market, driven by continuous change in global market conditions, advancing innovation and the increasing importance of sustainability at all levels.

Compared to the past, each company in the production chain has to respond to the next in line with increasing product and service quality.

This all requires investment in know-how, production and process digitalisation in order to optimise the end result in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. All players in the supply chain are expected to specialise their own processes in order to output not just a product but a solution.

In addition to being a change at an organisational and process level, it is really a change at a cultural level, which involves the whole company and starts from the desire to excel in providing the customer with added value created through optimising the resources in the Came – customer supply chain.

This idea has led us to embark on a partnership with many of our customers, and thereby develop a range of useful services to allow them to focus on activities with greater added value, optimising the final output through combining the resources of both partners more fruitfully.

This mutual exchange process has brought product innovation, an exchange of knowledge, cost rationalisation and efficiency, transforming our organisation and our mindset towards a “customer-centric” business approach.

For windings and die-casting co-design, our R&D services are designed to provide the know-how we have gained through over 40 years of experience, and production of 23,000 windings and 35,000 die-castings per day.

Every customer can count on the availability of a team of specialist technicians to carry out technical testing in order to improve end product efficiency.

We provide procurement and logistics support including purchasing raw materials and components and integrating the supply chain with consignment stock. We also provide digital tools to share all useful information for order management in real time with reserved access to the Came Portal.

Our solution is an integrated service from design and creation of die-castings and windings, through component procurement, assembly, warehouse management, up to logistics.

Came has experienced continuously increasing demand for services since 2020, reflecting the importance of supply chain partnerships in achieving common market goals.

Came Die-casting achieves conformance with the IATF 16949 Management System

7 October 2021

With the intention of developing a highly customer-oriented management system aimed at continuous improvement by emphasizing defect prevention and reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain, in 2021 we obtained the Letter of Conformance with the IATF 16949 Management System.

The IATF standard requires quality management to include all production and support departments . The audit took days and covered all of the processes and departments in Came Die-casting, including but not limited to procurement, customer service, IT, human resources, planning, design and development processes, production, purchasing, quality, logistics, management, sales, environment, and safety.

To obtain conformance, we had to undertake significant work in both documentation and risk analysis, including process
mapping, procedure drafting, operating instructions, records, audits, and field validation.

The following core tools were applied during process development:
– APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning)
– PPAP (Production Part Approval Process)
– FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis)
– SPC (Statistical Process Control)
– MSA (Measurement Systems Analysis)

We have exceeded the strict requirements that must be fulfilled to achieve certification, which has allowed us at Came Die-casting to improve our processes and the quality of the products we supply to our customers.

Conformance with the IATF 16949 management system attests to Came's commitment to provide our customers with the values in which we believe, continual innovation, reliability, flexibility, and teamwork.

The benefits of the new Came Die-Casting 2021 plant

20 April 2021

We have redesigned the new layout of the Came Die-Casting plant to support our customers’ needs: delivery speed and operational flexibility.

In expanding the plant, we have prioritised the logistics aspect to speed up loading and unloading and improve operational efficiency. To do this, we expanded and improved the die storage and maintenance part to increase operational flexibility and provide an ad-hoc die management service.

With this new layout, we have two next-generation 4.0 smelting furnaces that allow us to manage multiple alloys efficiently and increase production capacity.
We have distributed the press areas with robots to improve product unloading automation and make it easier to recover production waste with a focus on sustainability.

We have achieved the goals we set ourselves in 2020 and, for 2022, we want to achieve new sustainability goals for our human and production processes.

Interview with Simona Imperatore, the new Human Resources Manager at Came

27 July 2020

We are pleased to introduce you to Simona Imperatore, the new Human Resources Manager at Came. Simona will be the leader and manager of one of the most important aspects and values that distinguish Came: People. Came has entrusted Simona with important development and management goals for the Came team.

What experience do you have?

I moved to Came following seven years of experience in Human Resources at large companies in the Vicenza area, initially in the metalworking sector and then the tanning sector. During this time, I started with a professional internship and worked up to the role of specialist, with increasing responsibility for human resource search, selection, training and development processes.

What are Came’s strengths?

Today, Came is the link between a family company and a managerial organisation. The company manages to combine personal attention and the air of cooperation that you generally breathe in a family company with the innovation, dynamism and managerial focus typical of a large structured organisation.

Came’s strength derives from a belief in the value of the team and its component people, whose daily contribution helps make the company increasingly competitive. I can’t help but agree with this vision, which allows me to work in an environment that certainly promotes development of existing resources as well as addition of new talent.

How does the talent relate to Came’s innovation?

Because it is young, dynamic, technologically up-to-date, strongly focussed on people and well rooted in the area, Came is an extremely attractive company to young talent with an ambition to join a winning team. Today, prospects for growth, training, quality of life and workplace sustainability are elements that a company must provide, if it wants to attract and retain talent. Came’s investment in human resource management aims to go in precisely this direction.

What is the plan to develop the talent in Came?

In my opinion, every employee is to be regarded as a “customer” whose satisfaction must be the foremost goal of the Human Resources department. Just like an external customer, each employee has different talents, characteristics, needs and expectations. We want to follow them, listen to them and support them fully in their journey through the company. In fact, our attention must be focused both on adding new resources with high potential and on exploiting internal resources, in order to continuously grow and develop the corporate human capital. As well as finding talent and adding it to the company, it is essential to nurture, enhance and motivate the talent to stay in the company and bring the best out of it.

In fact, our high potentials must be in a position to show Came their value. Organising coaching, continuous training and development, and introducing facilities that improve the quality of corporate life are two macro projects through which this goal can be achieved.

BLDC motors in thermal cyclers for analysing Covid19 swabs

3 June 2020

Came has accrued significant know-how in creating wound stators for BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) motors, whose characteristics make them essential in a wide range of applications such as e-bikes, electric vehicles, HVAC, handling and many other fields of use.

The most important applications of BLDC motors include thermal cyclers, which hit the news in 2020 as the most useful tool nations have to analyse swabs taken from the population and keep the Covid19 epidemic under control.

Swabs are sticks with cotton pads to collect nasal mucous and pulmonary fluids. The sample is placed in a test tube and inserted into a thermal cycler, a machine that has been used for years to identify other pathologies such as common flu.

The thermal cycler heats and amplifies the genetic material of the virus through a polymerase chain reaction.
It is a compact instrument that uses discs with specific reagents to identify Covid19.
Thermal cyclers can very accurately analyse several samples at the same time, and provides results in just a few hours.

These devices must offer extremely reliable analysis quality and results, so they use Brushless Direct Current motors because of the following benefits:

– High efficiency;
– Stable rotation;
– Maintenance free;
– Small size;
– Long service life.

Came can boast lengthy experience in prototyping, industrialisation and production of wound stators for BLDC motors, thanks to a range of machines that will be expanded in the coming years to effectively meet customer needs.

Team Came's approach to the Covid19 crisis

18 May 2020

During this time of crisis caused by Covid19, Came has adopted a set of extraordinary measures to guarantee the health and safety of all its collaborators. To do this, it has worked on the management and company organisation, with the additional goal of ensuring company operation and continuity of service, above all to provide economic peace of mind and ethics to its collaborators.

Even before the safety protocol for containing the spread of the Virus, dated 14 March 2020, was officially issued, Came acted promptly by implementing strict measures to guarantee the health and safety of its employees.

The company management involved all its managers and workers’ representatives, immediately forming a Covid Committee to be at the front line in order to implement, improve and verify the steps taken to see Came through this emergency.

The main tools adopted by the company to achieve these goals are:
– Information and periodic bulletins for collaborators
– Changes to working hours and shifts
– Use of smart working
– Daily body temperature measurements at the entrance
– Distribution of PPE (masks, gloves)
– Installation of hand sanitizer dispensers
– Specific signs and posters in all company premises
– Changes to internal routes
– Contingent use of toilets, canteens and changing rooms

All of these actions have been supported by the vision and resilience of the Covid team, by continuously monitoring the perception of employees’ mood in production and management, and by the spirit of sacrifice and loyalty of all employees who have strictly observed the protocols that have been verified and approved, including through two visits by the local SPISAL (workplace health and safety prevention service) and by trade union representatives.

Those smiles that were lost for fear and uncertainty in the early days of the emergency, have now returned to the eyes of all collaborators in Came, in the knowledge that Came and its team are present and active during this period.

Came suspends activities for COVID-19 emergency until 3 April 2020

24 March 2020

The precautionary measures put in place by the DCPM 22/03/2020, to contain the spread of infections from Corona Virus, have prompted our company to decide to continue the suspension of activities until 3 April 2020 inclusive.

Production and logistics activities, therefore, remain suspended.

Our area managers are available in smart working, you can contact them by e-mail for any need.

You are certain that you will understand the reasons for this decision, also due to the closure of many of our strategic suppliers, and to Came’s desire to safeguard the health of our employees.

With the hope to restore our activities as soon as possible, we send you our best regards.

The new Came portal

2 March 2020


Portal.Came-Italy.com

The five Cs of good communication: clarity, completeness, conciseness, concreteness and correctness.
(Anonymous)

Good company communication is not only important when making initial contact with business partners, but must be considered periodically, changed and implemented every day.

The web portal is taking on an increasingly important role among the new tools for communication and interaction between business partners.

The institutional website, to which we have become accustomed, is now supported by a portal, which is mainly intended for the purpose of sharing and providing customised access. It gathers information that is relevant to the user’s context to facilitate interaction between companies.

Came activated its customer portal in 2018 as part of an innovative business vision and to consolidate business partnerships.

The Came portal is a window onto internal operations, offering users a real-time update on the progress of their activities.
– Created with very clear graphics for fast and very intuitive consultation;
– Use can be adapted to the type of user, selecting just one or several sections of interest;
– The tool undergoes continuous improvement and expansion, thanks to the internal work of our EDP department, which collects suggestions resulting from the experiences of our partners.

And soon it will become even more interactive, allowing die-cast material to be booked from the catalogue after consulting the just-in-time stock and availability of any similar items ready for delivery.

Came confirms the attitude that makes it a transparent and innovative business partner aiming for continuous service improvement through continuous interaction with its contacts and the market.

The importance of growing your staff

18 September 2019

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young, and open.”
Henry Ford

There are many famous quotations about education, but what does this have to do with businesses? Surely, the education of our staff and managers is the responsibility of schools, who have to mould them and prepare them to step into the workplace, when a position arises.

But is that really the case? I’m not talking about whether or not schools are doing their jobs: we could start a lengthy debate on that subject without ever reaching common ground. What I mean is, could buying people “ready-made” from the marketplace really be the best way of finding a good manager? Can a new entry join your company and really be ready for the role? It would be wonderful, but it isn’t like that.

Every role within a company requires a huge number of skills; some of them are more technical, and can potentially be inherited from other jobs or from school, while others are more wide-ranging, such as knowledge of the company and its credo, how it deals with problems, what its practices are, how it handles meetings, and so on. In short, each company has its own lifeblood; the sales office in one organisation will never be the same as its counterpart in another. The same goes for purchasing departments, technical divisions and so on.

When a manager joins your company, you need to start from the assumption that he or she knows nothing about the company, nor about the colleagues they will be working with. What can we say on this point? Best results call for total cooperation. How can people work well together if they don’t know who they are dealing with, what they like, and what annoys them?

Ultimately, in-house training would seem to be extremely important for newcomers; they have to put themselves on an equal footing as the colleagues already at the company or for those who are growing in order to take on more important positions.

Came firmly believes that investing in the training of its managers will yield the best results. Properly-trained managers bring added value to every area of the business. Once again this year, our entire managerial team is engaged in a multi-level training programme. The results of this are already evident: the more they grow, the stronger they become. The stronger the managers, the stronger the company.

This is what we believe in and I can assure you that, as Director General, seeing my managers grow together gives me a great sense of teamwork and unity, because everything we do strengthens the team. With a well-trained, cohesive team, there’s no challenge we can’t face.

Until next time. Enjoy your training!
