What's So Special About Manufacturing?!
Manufacturing today is nothing like it was in the 50s, 60s or even the 80s. It is not dirty, dark, monotonous, or low paying. It is bright, clean and high tech! The industry has transformed itself from human assembly lines and physical labor to advanced automation and robotics technology. Today's manufacturing relies on machine operators, engineers, technicians and applications experts and many others, to determine the best manufacturing processes for product development.
At our 401 Alexandria facility, Alexandria Industries uses a state-of-the-art aluminum extrusion press with a 175-foot run-out table. Our Carrollton, Texas, facility is known worldwide for its fine-tuned, heat sink manufacturing capabilities. We also use more than 100 CNC machines and pick-and-place robotics, as well as proprietary automated cutting and punching machines. Taking the labor out of manufacturing, we instead rely on our employees' expertise and skillsets to make the parts that go into products people see and use every day!
Manufacturing offers a wide range of career opportunities with enormous room for growth! The industry also pays well. At Alexandria Industries, we offer a variety of shifts and positions at our companies, with shift differentials that vary with the shift. Our HR representatives will be present on the tour day and will be happy to discuss any questions people may have about our compensation.
Visit Alexandria Industries and learn how you can change your life today by finding employment that is fun, innovative and highly rewarding. We offer money-saving employee benefits including, medical and dental insurance on day one! We have a 401K employer match and significantly low insurance premiums, along with unique benefits different from many other employers.
