Ajax Metal Forming of Minneapolis, MN picked up another StarTribune Top Workplaces honor for 2019. That’s five and counting.
StarTribune Top Workplaces recognition is no small thing. It tells people that our company cares about our employees. It gets our name out there via a major metropolitan newspaper. More importantly, it means that our people think Ajax is a swell place to work.
We like that. A lot. It’s the kind of humbling endorsement that goes far beyond industry awards (we like those too, BTW).
If you’ve never run a business, you may not appreciate just how important your people are to the success of your company. When people think highly of the company they work for, they’re more effective at their jobs. Customers sense that right away.
Ajax is celebrating our 75th anniversary this year. We’ll continue to do what it takes to remain one of the top employers in the Twin Cities area. The future of our company depends on having great people in every role.
Ajax Metal Forming Solutions Director of Operations Curt Jasper demonstrates a metal forming process to Minneapolis area high school students during MFG Day 2019 on the Ajax plant floor.
Ajax hosted 175 Twin Cities-area high school students on
October 3 & 4 for Manufacturing Day. Students were treated to a meet &
greet session that included presentations from several of Ajax’s metal forming
pros. Wearing safety gear, students were
taken on guided plant tours with demonstration stops at each machinery bay.
Ajax makes a huge effort each year on MFG Day to provide presentations and demonstrations to these youngsters because they and others like them represent our future manufacturing talent pool. Several of our current Ajax colleagues were introduced to us through this process, so we’ve become believers. Another fresh batch will visit us next year!
Created by the Manufacturers Association in 2012, Manufacturing Day has enjoyed support from many organizations aligned with its mission of positively changing the public perception of modern manufacturing. Ajax has been an active participant in this event since its inception.
