The Unpredictable Nature of Manufacturing

"Good morning blog," Tim greets us with a warm smile. "There's lots of stresses in the manufacturing business, pop-ups that come out of the blue. Talk about them? Just the ones this week? Yeah, this week has been quite the adventure."

Tim's account of the past week at Drink X provides a glimpse into the fast-paced and ever-changing nature of the manufacturing industry. "We've had to rewire a control motherboard on the canning line. The whole thing was shorting out due to water condensation. Then, this morning, we faced issues with the labeling machine—it just didn't want to cooperate. And if that wasn't enough, yesterday afternoon, the flash pasteuriser decided to give us trouble. So, that's our next challenge to tackle."

Navigating Challenges: From Problem to Solution

As the CEO, Tim sheds light on how these challenges are approached at the top. "Well, luckily, quite a few of us here have pretty solid engineering brains," Tim remarks. "When a problem presents itself, you have to work your way back from the issue to its root cause. Once identified, it's all about putting your best foot forward to fix it.

We're an adaptable bunch, you know. The toughest part is when you can't even pinpoint the problem."Tim's perspective showcases the tenacity and innovative spirit required to lead a successful manufacturing company. Challenges are not roadblocks; they're opportunities for growth and improvement.

The ASMR Solution: A Unique Approach

Amidst the whirlwind of manufacturing challenges, one might wonder how Tim finds solace. "Sometimes sleep doesn't come easily," Tim admits with a smile. "Do you need some ASMR? I think so. I think I do." With a touch of humour, he reveals that Drink X has even crafted their own ASMR recordings to help him relax and unwind.

Sharing the Experience: The ASMR YouTube Clip

"I saw you with your microphone out before," Tim chuckles, addressing the ASMR recordings. "So, we'll make some. This will be the blog post announcing that we have ASMR. I've been listening to these noises for a long time, and I can hear just from the sound of a machine whether it's running well or not, now you too can get to listen to them. So going to sleep with that background noise will be quite relaxing for me."
