Linetec's expansions continue
continues to expand capacity and add new jobs to support the
market's increased demand for high-quality finishes and
high-performance architectural metal products. Part of the latest
job growth is a $3 million investment to double the capacity of the
thermal services department.
The company offers both thermal
insulating strut and poured-and-debridged services, including for
90-degree and for radius and curved, finished aluminum extrusions.

latest job growth is painting volume." In late 2016, Linetec

"In the last 24 months, we expanded
capacity in both our paint and anodize lines, and added more than
200 new jobs. This year, we already have an immediate need to fill
70 positions, particularly in the paint and thermal services
departments. We're looking for more to join our team of good,
hard-working people across all production areas," says Jane Kessel,
Linetec's vice president of human resources.
Examples of Linetec's immediate job
opportunities include positions in production scheduling,
packaging, racking, truck drivers, cleaning and maintenance.
Starting rates range from $15 to $16 per hour plus premiums and
bonuses. Benefits include health and dental, bonus pay, 401k, paid
vacation, and tuition reimbursement.
"Once the new openings are filled,
we will have well over 600 employees - some of which have been here
30 years," Linetec's president Rick Marshall notes proudly. "We
listen to and value our employees. Their input helped establish the
Core Values we bring to life every day. The jobs in our industry
are sometimes demanding, but we more than offset those challenges
with a very positive and rewarding work environment. Our culture
and Core Values are what make us unique, and that helps us continue
to successfully hire in a very tight labor market."
