FOSDICK LAUNCHES 6S INITIATIVE

Wallingford, CT - November 22nd - 2016 - Fosdick Fulfillment has entered into Phase I of the 6S Initiative in our corporate headquarters located in Wallingford, CT. The goal is to utilize our implementation experiences, obtained from our initial phase, and then rollout the program nationwide. "The goal of our 6S Initiative is to keep our warehouses organized, clean, and safe". Says George Fanolis, VP of Business Development. Currently Fosdick maintains in excess of 1.6 million square feet of warehouse space throughout CT and NV.

6S is the name of a workplace organization method that uses 6 words that builds the foundation to an organized work environment. Sort, Systematize, Sweep, Standardize, Sustain, and Safety. They all start with the letter "S". The list describes how to organize work space for efficiency and effectiveness by identifying and storing the items used, maintaining the area and items, and sustaining the new order. The decision-making process usually comes from a dialogue about standardization, which builds understanding among the employees of how they should work.

Wallingford, CT - October 31st, 2016 - Musician and music producer Will.i.am, from the famous Black Eyed Peas, has enlisted the help of Fosdick to fulfill their Direct to Consumer & Retail orders of version 2 of his highly successful bluetooth enabled headphones. Fosdick will provide intial services from the CT location. Fosdick will also manage the all-important customer contact helping customers who have purchased the headphones.

The headphones deliver superior sound and style. The metalic disc clasp allowes for easy - all day comfort. It also has a built in mic for making or receiving phone calls.

Wearable technology is finally beginning to go beyond the wrist.

“Why should you have to take off your earphones when you finish listening to something and put them back in a box or bag, instead of just wearing them around your neck like jewelry?”

That was Will.i.am, the musician/TV personality/entrepreneur, co-founder of the Black Eyed Peas, and founder of i.am+, a wearable technology company with a focus on youth education, during an interview by telephone while traveling by car from Manchester, England, to London.
