Setting the Standard
Dometic takes a sustainable focus to its work. "We look serious at our
responsibilities as an employer, manufacturer and at our environmental footprint," the company says. "We innovate, design and deliver
smart, reliable products."
These products are safe and developed with sustainability in mind.
"For us, this means that environmental considerations are made to
the life span of a product, its energy efficiency and recyclability,"
The company aims to lead the way in this field by going beyond regulatory requirements. "For example, RTX, our line of truck parking coolers for EMEA, have almost doubled the energy efficiency compared
to the other models and our new CFX cooling boxes have best-in-class
energy performance," Dometic says.
chasing to the manufacturing and delivery channels,"
This makes a focus on quality critical for the operations
department. "[Our] mantra is 'mobile living made easy with
smart solutions, reliable products and reliable design,'" Miller says. "Without quality, you can't have quality products."
Miller adds that the department moves fast when resolving quality issues. "The biggest driver on quality issues is getting in front of them and preventing them from
happening again," he says.
"You've got to be Johnny on the spot and make sure it's
resolved not within months, but days and weeks."
He sees a bright future for Dometic, which recently became a publicly traded company in Sweden. In addition,
the industry has been setting record production numbers.
"Right now, Dometic is keeping pace with that," he says.
"The outlook for Dometic looks very promising."
Dometic takes part in charitable organizations, which now
include Habitat for Humanity. "[That] is something we're
going to be kicking off this summer," Miller says.
The company decided to get involved when it learned
that some of its employees were in need of housing. "We'll
be utilizing our own employees to build some local houses
here for [them]," he says. "That's something we're going to
be proud of this year." mt
