Dantherm Cooling is going GREEN! – belts that is.
Lean Master Black Belt, Personal Kanban Expert, and manufacturing GURU Kevin Lanford sails a tight ship on the Dantherm Cooling production floor. To help facilitate this Kevin believes in constant training and implementation of Lean principles.
This year all current and new employees will take part in internal training and will have the opportunity to earn their lean belt certifications. From engineering, sales, and customer service, all the way to production, all Dantherm Cooling team members will be focused on Lean principles and a push (pull) towards Green Belts and beyond.
Using the Lean principles, our employees can accomplish more, better, with less! Not only does this improve the daily work lives of our employees, but it all adds up to higher reliability and performance creating a higher value cooling solution for your equipment!
Dantherm Cooling is grounded on family principles. We work hard to make sure our culture is welcoming of not only visitors to the company, but our own families.
Meet Sophal (Paul) Dom pictured above right. With nearly 10 years with Dantherm, Paul knew it would be a perfect team for his sons, Brandon, and Cameron, pictured below, to join! Affectionately known as ”The Twins”, you can’t walk through the production floor with out seeing their infectious smiles.
Thanks for all you do Paul, Brandon, and Cameron!

Visitors to the Dantherm manufacturing floor in Spartanburg, South Carolina, get to experience the Dantherm Arena. What started as a way to streamline our production processes and make sure everyone was working toward common goals and could actually see what was happening in real time. Now, the Arena has become a destination and a point of pride. The reason for this is because it physically demonstrates the importance of every single member of the Dantherm team.
A common definition of team describes it as a group of players forming one side in a competitive game or sport. For Dantherm, the definition of team is far stronger than that, although we would agree we’re all on the same side in our mission. The Dantherm team is united behind the common goal of creating solutions for our customers, and our team strategy is bound by a culture of servant leadership. No one member of the team is more important than any other one, and whether we win or lose in our daily pursuits, we always start and finish together. Nowhere is our culture of servant leadership and true teamwork more evident than on the literal backbone of the Dantherm Arena, set in the middle of the production floor. The Arena has become our hub of communication for the entire team, and it is the literal and physical epicenter of how our team functions on a daily basis.
Explore the back of the Dantherm Arena and you’ll see our entire team outfitted in Dantherm jerseys, and you’ll notice the players, the ones who make the plays and get the cheers from the fans (for us that’s our customers), are the ones on the floor making Dantherm solutions come to life and sending them out the door. The bottom level of the team, visually represented as a support crew for the players, is comprised of management and leadership, but at Dantherm we take a different approach. Our support crew of leadership is ensuring the players on the manufacturing floor have the tools, the equipment, and the supplies and training they need to play their best each and every day.
We’ve all watched the rise and fall of star athletes. The ones who seem destined for ultimate success, but without the support of a team as strong as their weaknesses, those once lauded first round draft picks are left looking for new careers and forgotten by most. However, at Dantherm, it’s the team that gets the attention. It’s the Dantherm team that produces electronic cooling solutions on a daily basis that keep other teams around the world connected, functioning, and winning at their own games.
At Dantherm, you’ll learn we view crazy as a compliment and a mantra. Look up the word crazy in the dictionary and you’ll find a definition offering some form of explanation that the word is an adverb expressing an extreme state of being. We can agree with that. We are extremely passionate about creating solutions for our customers to protect their critical equipment and systems.
Dantherm uses crazy to describe our approach to solutions and engineering for our customer’s needs because, well, it just fits. We’re crazy enough to believe we can achieve the impossible. We’re building a reputation for providing cooling and thermal management solutions for critical network systems and services that prevent costly and time consuming outages and breakdowns. Even better, we’re the proud owners of a reputation for being able to solve some of our customer’s most complex challenges, challenges other providers couldn’t solve.
Thermal management and cooling systems can be one of the most overlooked yet often one of the most important components of the industries we serve. Our engineers consider the specific pain points our customers are experiencing with their current climate control solutions and how to eliminate those issues. That’s where the crazy comes in. We’re designing solutions to protect the critical equipment that supports millions of essential systems around the world, such as data centers, utilities, battery storage solutions and more. When our customer’s equipment goes down, the ripple effect of their own pain is felt around the world. That kind of impact leaves little room for mediocrity or good enough. No, when you operate on a mantra that your team is crazy enough to solve the most complex challenges faced by the industries you serve, good enough is not the goal.
Cue the engineering jokes, but think of the last time your cellular or wireless service went down. Think of the effect it could have if a system managing a power grid or navigating critical railroad shipments fails. We focus on designing for our customer’s needs and pain points, rather than designing what we think the market may need, no matter how big or daunting the problem may seem. We’ll take on the problem and we won’t stop until we find a solution. Sound crazy? That’s exactly what we’re going for.
