A local, well respected company is looking for a great addition to their already existing Maintenance team. The team and entire company are already performing well and as soon as you walk into the plant you’ll realize this isn’t like everywhere else – there is a culture of performance, cooperation, and quality. It seems like everyone in the plant takes pride in their work and is committed to ensuring an excellent, cooperative, high-performing culture.
