International Women’s’ Day has recently come and gone again, and BTE would like to take a moment to point out our hard working women at Best Tool & Engineering. Women with important roles and even female business owners are an upon an incline in the tool and die industry lately. We have always lived in a world where the majority of business owners were men so this is definitely a new and exciting change.
Here at Best Tool, we are proving that this is in fact happening everyday in the workplace. There have been many stereotypes about women and about hiring women especially in this type of environment in fear that they would not be able to handle the heavy lifting and hard work. Times are continuously changing.
Now that Best Tool is split up into two buildings, one is for Plastic Injection and the other is for Engineering and Design work. At the Plastic Injection location, women are running presses, delivering heavy equipment in box trucks, material handling and many other roles that run the operation. These women take their jobs very seriously and continuously produce quality products for their customers. They lift large boxes onto trucks and shelves and even do troubleshooting and maintenance on their presses. While the organization is still ran by Joseph, he has a lot of confidence that having Women in the Workplace is truly a great decision.
