COMPREHENSIVE EMPLOYEE BENEFITS PACKAGE
Retirement Plans include a Defined Benefit Pension Plan for Factory / Union Employees, and a fully-vested 401(k)
with matching contributions and access to a Personal Financial Advisor for Office Personnel.
Our products are 100% custom, which means each project is completely unique. With every order that comes through our door we encounter a new set of challenges. Boredom and monotony are simply not an option! Craftsmanship and creativity – from engineering to manufacturing to finishing – drive us and infuse a sense of pride into what we accomplish every day.
We work hard but that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun! We celebrate holidays together, have company lunches on our wooded hiking trail, and celebrate safety milestones with pizza parties and monthly/quarterly cash drawings. One of the highlights each year is our United Way fundraising event that boasts a catered lunch, 50/50 raffle, and dozens of raffle baskets with cash and other great prizes.
