Manufacturing: to make (something) on a large scale using machinery.
As hungry students eager to learn fill the gymnasium, we were there to teach them about manufacturing as a career. Earlier in the month of October a team of employees from ShoreMaster, including Chad Hulter, Jordan Heikes, and Haley Stich, attended the local Fergus Falls High School Career Fair. The gymnasium was filled with many booths about healthcare, hospitality, construction, agriculture, etc. We were there to teach them about career possibilities at ShoreMaster, but more importantly, about manufacturing as a career.
Peppered by the question from students, “What is ShoreMaster?” For us employees working the booth, this was one of our favorite questions to answer. Yes, we manufacture premium docks and lifts, but we do it safely and efficiently with GREAT people. At the career fair it was the GREAT people that we focused on. ShoreMaster is driven by two assets – great employees and great customers. This has been the key to our success from the beginning. As a part of the ShoreMaster, team our employees get to be a part of a fun, focused, friendly, safety-oriented company with a proven record of success.
Many of the students have grown up in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes, have a cabin, or live on a lake where they have seen a ShoreMaster dock and lift or their family owns one. For some of these students given the tools they need to succeed, and as long as they apply themselves, ShoreMaster has opportunities to open many doors for these students after graduation.
“Manufacturing at ShoreMaster to me is more than just a job. It is being able to build amazing products people use for a lifetime, for people to create memories with family and friends at the lake and being able to be a part of that. It’s a really cool feeling.” says Chad Hulter, Safety Coordinator at ShoreMaster.
ShoreMaster, LLC is a team of fabricators, engineers, mechanics, developers, designers, problem solvers, and more, working to provide our customers with the very best waterfront experience available. “I have been welding ShoreMaster products for 17 years and I still love building our products” says Tracy Jefferies, Steel Supervisor. For many of the employees here they have the opportunity to see their work on a daily basis driving through lakes country.
The future is bright for the next generation of individuals who decide on a career in manufacturing. To learn how to join the ShoreMaster Team visit www.shoremaster.com.
