Who We Are:

We build products and relationships that last a lifetime!   No really, that’s what we do.   Our industrial products come with a 99 year warranty.  We are a successful family business with a long-term record of steady growth and are determined to get better in 2018.  Diversity is our life blood.  We have folks from all over the US and the world on our team.  Our product solutions sit at the top of their categories for both price and quality.  Check out our websites www.strong-hold.com, www.fabricatedmetals.com, and www.utilitymetals.com.  We treat our customers like family. We sell to the market direct, through distributors and through original equipment manufacturers. Our team members are passionate about their coworkers and customers. We are searching for the best folks in their field.  Folks that reflect and demonstrate our 5 core values – Ownership, Integrity, Respect, Team First, and Passion for Winning.

Who We Aren’t:

Fancy – we are manufacturers who believe beautiful facilities are NOT required to make quality products.  We burn metal, bend metal, weld metal, paint metal and assemble………… you guessed it, metal.  Quiet – every idea and opinion matters.  We expect 1 improvement idea per person per week.  We believe in open and honest communication. Hands off – our management team meets every day on the shop floor.  We believe in the “Gemba” and “go and see” principles.      We have a conference room but we don’t like to use it.  Satisfied – we set then celebrate the achievement of goals.  Then we just set the next goal a little bit higher.

What we’re looking for:

  • Draws up master schedule to establish sequence and lead time of product to meet completion dates according to sales forecasts or customer orders. We have two plants with established schedules, but we have two more that really needs you!
  • Proven stable work history. 5 jobs in 4 years is not a badge of honor.
  • Self-motivated. You can organize, maintain, control, and continuously improve processes – you aren’t happy til it’s right. No one needs to tell you step by step what or how to do it!
  • Detail orientated and data driven. Can you cross T’s and dot I’s?  You can explain the details and have the reasons behind decisions backed by data!
  • You can balance the capabilities of the shop and the demand of the customers (sales) and still have the respect and trust of both. No one said you are going to win a popularity contest, but both sides should trust what you say.
  • Organizational skills – everything in its place.
  • Do you know what a BOM is? We have lots and purchasing must know if they need to get something ordered and what the delivery schedule looks like to meet your schedule.
  • Understands manufacturing processes – you can’t schedule orders if you don’t know what processes orders go through. You do know that you can’t paint before it is welded, right?
  • You understand time studies and human resource requirements, right? They do affect your scheduling process.
  • Can you train and develop employees? Hold others accountable?  Your team needs you!
  • Can you document and report issues to the sales manager quickly? The sales manager should know what is going on before the management team!
  • Computer literate. Fundamental understanding of Excel, Outlook and Adobe.  Great Plains/Dynamics is a big plus.
  • Interested in earning a healthy base hourly rate with a variable compensation component based on company performance?
