Murphy Company

One Year Out of 68

My name is Simon Brazik, and I am part of the Murphy Company marketing team as well as an integral piece to our logistics division. After recently reaching my one year anniversary here, I began reflecting and felt it appropriate to share a bit about my experience with my Murphy Company family. I have had several jobs in my working life, beginning with mowing lawns at 13 to pay for all of my teenage ambitions. By 20, I was writing for an online music magazine -- my short lived and ultimately doomed adventure into new media. I have to say, out of all of these occupations, Murphy Company has been the most uniquely incredible.

After finding myself unemployed, like so many others in 2013, I responded to an ad on Craigslist for a position as a part time delivery driver. Less than a week later, I walked into a high pressure two-on-one interview. My expectations hadn’t quite prepared me for what I was getting into. I wore my best clothes, brought my extra resume copies, but I never anticipated getting grilled in an oak paneled conference room.

At first, I was asked a flurry of questions that had little to do with my ability to pilot a van. Some were the typical, “where do you see yourself in ten years,” but as the questions continued, I realized that they could tell I was comfortable driving a van; they knew I was not some shady figure looking to recklessly joyride for an afternoon like the garage attendants in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. What eventually dawned on me was that the questions were coming from a place of security. The interviewers were merely discerning how well I would fit within the tight-knit group who worked there.

That is the magic of Murphy Company. There is so much family history, familial ties and ostensibly, a laid back aesthetic that goes along with that kind of environment. Yet, under the surface exists a lot more that is not quite visible to the outside observer. In reality, the pacing feels more akin to the intense, high speed nature of a Silicon Valley startup.

My ability to quickly adapt has been an absolutely crucial component in regards to seamlessly molding to company's needs. It can be stressful having to pivot on a moments notice, but I appreciate the variation of my day to day tasks; anything from data entry to helping build out our marketing strategy.

I find the most fulfillment in doing the deliveries. It is nice to be greeted by the same familiar faces, continue previous conversations about the psychological effects of wearing Hawaiian shirts in the winter months or proper beard grooming techniques. These moments serve as a constant reminder that behind each company are people with lives and their own stories. In the business world, this is something that can easily be forgotten, but it is so important. At the end of the day, I'm doing far more than merely dropping off an order. I'm making true connections.

I have delivered almost everything we have sold over the past year, spending about 14,000 minutes behind the wheel -- the equivalent of 5 cross country trips. Taking the above into consideration, there is also something soothing about the solace that comes with driving that much by one's self. Feeling the momentum of that giant truck, getting to know a new town's character, building personal mental landmarks; these all synthesize into a warm, inner peace on par with the feeling of returning to one's hometown after their first semester of college.

In spite of all of these faux-nostalgic feelings, there is always something new on the horizon leading us ahead of the curve, which can be both exciting and terrifying. For any anxiety this may cause, it is nice to know that there exists a comfort, a distinct feeling of inclusion and personal connection at Murphy Company. Funny thing is that even though I've only known my co-workers for a year, when I pull the van back into the warehouse and I walk through the office, I truly do feel at home with my family.

How 3D Printing is Growing Interest in STEM Curriculum

This week’s article is part of our series on ‘Education and 3D Printing.’Published by Kevin Murray.

In America, the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields are in dire need of young professionals. Baby Boomers currently hold the highest percentage of these positions, and as they begin to retire, the urgency to find replacements drastically increases. A problem we currently face is that a growing number of students are not interested in these kinds of classes.

According to the US Department of Education, only 16% are proficient at math and interested in a STEM career. Living in an era of constantly evolving technology and instantly accessible information means that the STEM related career standards of the past are no longer acceptable. In order to raise the bar higher, school officials need to find ways to inspire the younger generations early on.

Students as Makers

Organizations like TechPoint Foundation for Youth are testing ways to get kids interested in STEM paths by giving grants to select schools in an effort to help incorporate 3D printers into their curriculum. Students at Creekside Middle School in Carmel, Indiana, one of the recipients of the grant, have connected greatly with their printer.

This is not just another step to overcome until the next test; they are exposed to real life, hands-on applications of printed objects. In math, as an example, kids learn about graphing a function that uses the x, y, and z axes. They can then apply that function to a 3D printer and see exactly how manipulating one axis affects the creation.

If teachers created uniformity within the curriculum, like what Arden Academy did in Solihull, England, students could experience the synthesis of STEM courses. Arden's project for Year 7 students looked at the chemistry of plastic and the physics of the printer, then using Google Sketch Up, designed "predators" in biology. Being an integral piece of the process is far more engaging than videos or worksheets, especially when the kids are devoting attention to actively seeking out information.

Most schools who incorporated 3D printing into their curriculum claimed that there was a bit of a learning curve. Getting used to Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software took some time. Yet, teachers found that quality training, paired with reliable support from manufacturers and internal staff helped greatly expedite their comfortability with the system's workflow.

Local Educational 3D Printing Efforts

Within most cities lie plenty of opportunities for educators to expand their knowledge base. Here in Columbus, Ohio, The Columbus Idea Foundry (CIF) set up a community learning center and maker space geared towards training and providing access to materials used for anything from business and artistry to general hobbies.

As a means of helping those new to 3D Printing technology, people can work with the intricacies of the CAD software on site. After users feel more comfortable, CIF currently has one printer available for hourly use, as well as access to many others throughout the Columbus area. Ethan Dicks, member and instructor at the CIF, has hosted a free 3D printing "meetup" at the shop every second Wednesday from 7pm-10pm for the last five years.

In 2012, MAKE Magazine, the champion of this new tech-DIY revolution, ran a few competitions to see which city around the world could bring the most people together to participate in 3D printing, electronics/programming, robotics, and the like.  From New York and San Francisco, to London and Singapore, 300 cities around the world competed and nobody was more surprised than Alex Bandar, founder/CEO of the Columbus Idea Foundry, when Columbus won.

Columbus and the CIF placed 1st in the world in this meetup competition; 1st in the world for Raspberry Pi (an open source/open hardware electronics/programming platform), and second in Robotics (although the high school robotics team sponsored by the CIF, the Cougar Robots 4251, came in 1st in the world in their own 2600 school competition).  "This is a testament to the innovative spirit and talent of the Central Ohio region," says Dr. Bandar, "and is an example of how this new 'Maker Movement' can reinvigorate the midwest - once the home of the US manufacturing base, and soon to be the home of the US innovation base."

The Future of Education

Education is of paramount importance, especially when it comes to new technology. The ones who will best utilize all of the upcoming advances are the younger generation, as kids quickly catch on to the latest products and know how to access information. Learning how to organize that information will take the guidance of well informed educators. Murphy Company recognizes just how imperative this growth is and seeks to support the community. Whether it comes from providing work shops or partnering with our neighbors at CIF, we are working hard to investigate the best methods for preparing individuals of all ages for the leap into the future.

Dr. Alexander Bandar is a computational metallurgist by training, and an entrepreneur by accident.  Having worked ten years in the field of manufacturing software, with clients from GM to Apple to the Defense Department, he now directs the Columbus Idea Foundry - a community workshop, or "makerspace", which he began as a hobby and is now his full-time career.  Newly relocated to a 65,000 sf warehouse in Columbus OH, the Columbus Idea Foundry houses tools from blacksmithing to 3D printing, teaches classes on the design and fabrication resources available at the shop, and then sells memberships to anyone who wishes to use the workshop as if it were their own.  With 200 members and growing rapidly (of whom approximately half are entrepreneurs), the Columbus Idea Foundry is the world's largest and most active makerspace, and is quickly finding a place in the creative, educational, technological and business ecosystems of Central Ohio and beyond.  Dr. Bandar speaks and consults regularly about this exciting new "Maker Movement", has presented multiple TEDx talks on the subject, and most recently was invited to deliver the Cultural Heritage presentation on behalf of the City of Columbus at the Intelligent Cities Forum in Manhattan.

Moving Fast in 2015

Springtime symbolizes new life, as nature's palette begins to splash flecks of color into the greyscale of trees and sky. We leave our overcoat cocoons to fully embrace the impending warmth. With the Spring Equinox finally here, it is a perfect time to reflect on past achievements, as well as look at what Murphy Company has planned for this year.

New Website

Murphy Company built a new, dynamic website with enhancements to better serve our customers’ needs. This complete makeover is quite extensive with expansive code development on the backend and many advanced design elements for the user side.

We are rolling out these changes currently, but they are slowly coming online weekly. Our primary focus on the redevelopment was improving the customer experience, providing tools that support the business to business transactions and operating as a thought leader within the graphics arts industry.

A sampling of these features include:

      • Shopping cart for ease of use and transactions.
      • Customers can build a profile for online ordering, improved efficiencies and cost savings.
      • Redesigned, interactive web pages providing rich content and tools for staying current on promotions, pricing and new products.
      • Central social wall for up to date postings on industry related information.

 Online Shopping Cart

As one of our proudest announcements, we just launched our new online shopping cart. While this is commonplace in everyday consumer shopping, it is actually a very sophisticated integrations. These improvements keep customers informed of the latest products, promotions and services. We created a better experience to build a stronger connection with our users, utilizing enhanced features that provide real time feedback and news on products.

Please be patient while we test out the site and cart, and let us know of any problems. In addition, contact Sales@MurphyCompany.com if there is anything you need that is not listed.

3D Printing

We are extremely excited to add 3D printing to the ever growing list of products that Murphy Company has to offer. This 20+ year technology is going mainstream in the marketplace. Desktop printers like the Flashforge Dreamer or the Solidoodle Press make creating easy for any level of experience; from the beginning hobbyist to the seasoned professional, the applications for using a 3D printer are limitless. As an example of stunning innovation, check out this video of a dog running for the first time using 3D printed legs.

As with most recently mainstreamed technologies, this area of focus is wrought with false summits and potential dead ends. To provide our customers with the best opportunities possible, we are aligning ourselves with some of the leading products and accessories, including:

Familiarizing ourselves with these products has been an enlightening experience, and we cannot wait to see all of the unique creations our customers come up with. In the meantime, watch our social media channels as we promote different opportunities for users to share their builds and provide insight.

In December, we released a 3D Printing digital newsletter, #3DLayers, designed to highlight makers, educate and entertain. Make sure to never miss a release by following us on Twitter.

Just Around the Corner

We are building a community section to share and connect with the graphic arts, 3D printing and dictation family. Customer participation drives this platform to promote knowledge and highlight achievements within each industry. Keep your eyes on our social media or blog for more information.

A New 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing Center For Cleveland

Case Western Reserve University is set to benefit from a new on-campus 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing R&D facility following its recently announced formal partnership with Rapid Prototype + Manufacturing (rp+m). The company will move its research and development arm to the university where it will “join forces” with faculty researchers to develop new technologies in the growing additive manufacturing market and assist students in entrepreneurship and with research opportunities with the technologies — with the specific aim of boosting economic development in this region of North America.

The Avon Lake-based business and Case Western Reserve have announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to create the Additive Manufacturing Studio in think, the high-tech invention center on campus, this summer.

rp+m employees will work in the studio, where the company will install eight additive manufacturing platforms. The equipment will triple the number of 3D printers in think and increase the breadth of materials that can be used threefold, including bringing the first metal-printing machines to campus.

The university and rp+m have also agreed to pursue research grants and research and development partnerships with companies locally and worldwide — an effort that has already begun.

“We are very excited to help create the Additive Manufacturing Studio at think,” said Anthony Hughes, chief technology officer at rp+m. “This has been over a year in the making and another way in which we are broadening our partnership with Case Western Reserve University.” The collaboration, Hughes said, “is essential to rp+m’s business success.”

William “Bud” Baeslack, provost of Case Western Reserve, said the joint effort will boost research and better prepare students for the workforce, commenting: “Beyond gaining infrastructure and support that we couldn’t on our own, their staff and our students will be working side-by-side — our students will collaborate and be engaged in a real-world learning environment.”

rp+m and the university are already working together with other companies to convert a laser hotwire welding technique into a 3D manufacturing process, a project funded by America Makes, the Youngstown-based National Network of Manufacturing Innovation institute. They have also hosted a company on campus and at rp+m, in an effort to establish another research and development partnership.

A 3D Blueprint For The Future, a digital manufacturing strategy for New Zealand. As the 3D movements expands more countries do not want to be left out.

Green Party information and technology spokesperson Gareth Hughes launched a component of the Green Party's Smart Green Innovation package today. The Blueprint For The Future, a digital manufacturing strategy for New Zealand, will:

• develop a digital manufacturing strategy;

• support and develop 3D printing;

• educate and empower students in the use of digital manufacturing.

"This component, like the Green Party's proposed structural timber award, is a blueprint for the future," said Mr Hughes.

"The world is changing, we need to change with it and invest more in smart green innovation like digital manufacturing.

"We need to be investing more into smart green manufacturing and digital manufacturing technologies like 3D printing, which offer new economic opportunities.

"Other countries are investing significant and considerable attention in digital manufacturing in areas like 3D printing and New Zealand risks being left behind if we don't develop a national strategy.

"The Green Party will institute a taskforce to establish a digital manufacturing strategy for New Zealand, one part of our blueprint for a smart green economy," said Mr Hughes.
