After two years of rescheduling due to the pandemic to ensure the safety of the associates, the employee-owners of NewStream Enterprises, LLC (NewStream), a subsidiary of SRC Holdings Corp. (SRC), finally got the chance to celebrate NewStream’s 30th Anniversary with an in-house reception in its thirty-second year.
Established in 1990, we started with only 15 employees and a single facility. Our company now has over 300 associates across three facilities in Springfield, Missouri. From materials management to direct order fulfillment, we have evolved into a seamless extension of a number of the world's leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in a variety of industries such as trucking, agriculture, construction, and marine. Our comprehensive supply chain services are customized to fit our customers’ requirements, helping them efficiently manage all or any segment of their supply chain process, including kitting, packaging, assembly, subassembly, warehousing, and distribution.
“I am really excited about the growth of NewStream in the future because of our diverse businesses,” said Gary Goetz, General Manager of NewStream. “I think a lot of that has been the employees' involvement, their ownership, and understanding that if you have to grow and diversify the company to be successful.”
During the celebration, our employees were treated with tasty food, yard games, and fantastic raffle prizes. Everyone was very happy to be able to finally celebrate this special event altogether. It was also very exciting to see a lot of former employees who retired from NewStream came back to the facility and celebrated with us. Beverly Willis, the first General Manager of NewStream, also visited our facility and joined us in our celebration. Seeing the phenomenal growth of NewStream, Beverly was very excited and proud of the team.
“The reason why we have got to this level of growth is the people, all of you that have contributed to the success of the company over the years,” Beverly Willis said. “I wish they were not as much of an owner as they are because when I see what a company like NewStream has done, how they work together, what they do to go way over the top to give the customers what they need and when they need it and to work with the suppliers to get our parts in here, (...) this was the hardest thing for me to leave and retire...”
At NewStream, we understand that employees love their jobs and show more passion for what they do when they take ownership of their work and are a part of a bigger mission to keep vital industries functioning throughout the world.
“I am immensely proud of the work we do within the local community and with the financial education,” James Strachan, Account Manager of NewStream remarked. “We are not just creating jobs, we are creating meaningful careers, as well as supporting the OEMs, and keeping the American’s economy going.”
Our employee ownership encourages our associates to own their jobs, allowing them to have a stake in the outcome and resulting in a win-win situation for everyone. Every day, we celebrate our successes and thank our employee owners for their hard work and dedication to ensuring that our clients are happy with their supply chain!
"I have the privilege of being a supervisor [of] the best people that you can imagine. They've changed my life. They're "big time" as we like to say... [At] NewStream, the sky is the limit for everybody involved because there's so many opportunities, there's so much growth, and I can tell you I have made friendships that will last forever. I love the people here. It's just an awesome place to work," said Shane Harms, Production Supervisor at NewStream.
Congratulations to NewStream on reaching this significant milestone! Let's have a look at some more photos from our wonderful celebration!
