The Beatles had a White Album. Falk has a white factory.
(We all want to change the world).
When the Beatles released their White Album in 1968, people weren’t quite sure what to make of it. The double album’s 30 songs were quite a break from the band’s previous work and the stark white cover was definitely an oddity—it was seen as a little rebellious and a whole lot of cool.
At Falk, we too are shaking things up a little. That’s one of the reasons we painted our 90,000 sq ft factory in Calgary completely white from top to bottom. The ceiling, the walls and the floor are all a glorious, gleaming white. It makes for a super safe industrial environment, it’s clean as a whistle and well, you can’t help but be in a good mood walking around our buzzing white factory.
You’ll see dozens of Falkers busy precision manufacturing the components that will arrive on your job site in the exact order you need them—and with dramatically lower freight costs. With Falk’s Digital Component Construction your job site will stay every bit as clean as our factory. Our solution, which is completely aligned with the conventional construction process, creates zero dust onsite and virtually no waste.
Soon, right in the middle of our factory, our gorgeous 6,400 sq ft Falk Nest will be ready. We will tell you more about this stunning celebration of architecture and design in the next few weeks. Stay tuned! We’re really looking forward to showing off our super cool clean-tech factory. And when you come see it in person, you can be forgiven for humming a little Beatles as you walk around.
You say you want a revolution
Well, ya know
We all want to change the world.
The interior construction industry hasn’t changed much since the White Album came out more than 50 years ago. But our white factory, World HQ of Digital Component Construction, is helping to change it for the next 50 by speeding up schedules, reducing freight and installation and all but eliminating jobsite waste.
That’s something to sing about.
First came the steam engine in the mid-19C. Then Henry Ford and the Model T rolled in with mass production in the early 20C. Automation hit the factory floor in the 1970s and next up, we’re in for yet another manufacturing revolution.
Industrial systems thinker Olivier Scalabre argues the fourth big change in manufacturing is coming with technological innovation. He calls it Industry 4.0. We call it another day at Falkbuilt. Read On>>
