Opportunity to join a very special company whose mission is

“to make a difference in people’s lives”

 

The Company: Is a privately held, highly strategic manufacturer of industrial lift equipment serving a broad range of industries and applications. The company is profitable (always has been), very well managed and has no debt. They have nearly 40 years of history and a marketing presence in the US, Mexico, China, Germany, Turkey, Korea, Australia and Canada. They have manufacturing facilities in New York, Alabama and China. They sell products through a network of 500 dedicated US dealers and direct to customers outside of the US. They enjoy a commanding share of the US overhead crane market in the non-automotive manufacturing sector. Their design process is highly automated using an online configurator and standard components to custom design units to fit customer space and application specifications….kind of like building with Lego’s.

The company’s business practices are extremely customer focused. Mission, vision, values are all about the customer experience, including dealers and end users.  Make a commitment, keep the commitment….period. In fact, one of the company’s core values is to “Create Extraordinary Customer Experiences”. As is always the case, the company’s culture starts at the top. The owner and senior leaders espouse a philosophy that “making a dollar is one thing, making a difference in people’s lives is all together another”.  Their strategy focuses on industrial equipment that makes work easier, prevents injuries and helps keep people safe. This is a serious commitment and stems from the company’s “We Improve People’s Lives” mission statement.

Culturally, this is a company where employees get along, support each other and often socialize together. The work environment is one people enjoy coming to. Having fun while doing business is very ok. While robust conversation and debate on planning and problem solving is encouraged, personal affronts are not. The interpersonal culture is one of civility, trust and respect. One of the company’s three core values is “Positive People in a Positive Environment” and the talk is walked. The office environment is open and collaborative….open meeting spaces, work walls you can write on, mobile furniture that can be easily configured to meet the need and a lot of positive interaction. The company sponsors a Halloween party for employee’s children; organizes breakfast with Santa; provides discounts and sponsors leagues at a local golf course and organizes periodic summer barbecues. People are valued and appreciated as people as well as employees. This is a company that supports community non-profit organizations, partners with schools and funds community projects that make it a better place for employees and their families.
