Important Change Coming to Sonnax Packaging

As part of an initiative to Go Green in ’19, Sonnax will cease including printed instructions with most products.

Beginning March 1, we will stop inserting instructions into the packaging of approximately 1,000 products. This change will primarily impact parts such as end plugs, valve kits and bushings that come in small bags. In general, instructions will continue to ship with larger components and boxed products such as Zip Kits® and The Sure Cure® kits.

Instructions for all products will remain available on the Sonnax website – and are now faster and easier to find.

Why is Sonnax doing this?

Reduce Waste: We printed more than 1 million pages of instructions last year— that’s a LOT of trees. 

Make the Sonnax Workplace Safer: The rising number of pages has been matched by more repetitive motion concerns and injuries among Sonnax employees packaging our smallest, bagged parts. Products packaged this way are also among the easiest to install. Instructions are often thrown away, unused.

To ensure everyone has quick access to all instructions, we created a simple online search tool: 

1. Quickly view instructions at www.sonnax.com/in

2. In the search box, enter the Sonnax part number found on the Sonnax packaging. 

If instructions are available, a PDF will open or your browser will download the file (your own browser settings control what happens). If no instructions are found, verify you are typing the correct part number or visit the part page on the website for product information.

Governor Meets with New Ownership at Sonnax

Sonnax President Steve Boyer met with Governor Scott and Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation Executive Director Adam Grinold on Tuesday as part of Windham County Capitol for a Day.

“We were honored to welcome Gov. Scott to Sonnax and eager to show him the high-quality products and operations made possible by the entire Sonnax team,” said Sonnax President Steve Boyer. “We are pleased to work with government and business development leaders for the continued growth of our state, regional, and local economies.”

“Our Capitol for a Day initiative is about getting outside Montpelier, so we can listen to and learn from Vermonters around the entire state, and better understand their unique challenges and opportunities,” said Governor Scott. “And as my Administration makes expanding and strengthening Vermont’s workforce a top priority, it was incredibly valuable to hear from BDCC and Sonnax leadership about the workforce needs in the region, and the regional efforts to recruit and train Vermonters for the good jobs available today.”

About Capitol for a Day:
The Governor, along with members of his cabinet and extended cabinet, spend the day in every county, meeting with area constituents, lawmakers, local partners and state employees throughout the day.

The initiative aims to give regional constituencies direct access to Administration leadership, as well as giving Administration officials an opportunity to visit regional businesses, schools, community organizations and municipal offices. The Administration expects to visit each of the state’s 14 counties throughout the summer and fall of 2018.

May 29, 2018 Tasc force meeting may 2018

Sonnax Hosts Annual TASC Force Meeting

The Sonnax TASC Force recently got together for its annual meeting to discuss new product needs for the market. The meeting was held May 18-19 at the Sonnax New Jersey facility and the Warwick Rittenhouse Square Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. In attendance were 29 TASC members, representing 17 shops from six different countries.  

The meeting kicked off with a tour of Sonnax following a briefing by plant manager Mark Spaseff and remanufactured valve body product line manager Maura Stafford.  The tour focused on six major stations in the plant: receiving, core prep, reaming, building, testing and shipping. The re-occurring topic heard at all stations was the Sonnax commitment to safety, quality, delivery and continuous improvement. “We have been working hard to improve our products and service and are very excited to share our process improvements with the TASC Force,” said Spaseff.

After the tour, the group returned to the hotel where they were welcomed by Sonnax Transmission Company president Steve Boyer.  Boyer thanked everyone for attending the meeting and expressed his excitement to be there as he’s heard so much about what TASC means to Sonnax, and how it affects the new product development needs of the industry.

Meeting topics included new product suggestions, Sonnax quality, and industry trends that the automatic transmission aftermarket is facing today.

This year, more than 90 new product ideas were submitted, of which the group then votes on based on their importance to rebuilding today’s transmissions. Sonnax Vice President of product line management Steve Jaussaud noted the progress that his team has made; nine out of the 15 TASC picks from previous meetings are now available from Sonnax, and the other six are currently in development for future release.

A highlight of the TASC meeting is always the Friday night dinner where members have the opportunity to get together to discuss business and reminisce about meetings past. This year was especially notable when Steve Boyer presented former president and CEO Tommy Harmon with a framed Sonnax license plate from the traveling tech van. Boyer thanked Tommy for his vision and dedication to the TASC Force, and committed to keeping the mission alive in the future.
