Job Description

Here's a little about us...

  • We exist to Glorify God and to serve our customers.
  • We are family owned and have been in business for 70 years!
  • We make custom foam parts for companies big & small!
  • We have a positive, hardworking culture! (imagine Chick-fil-a, but without chicken in a manufacturing environment)

1. Are you sick of working for an uninspired company where you feel like you are a cog in a wheel or a number in the system?

2. Would you rather be part of a smaller company with growth opportunities where you are actually treated like family?

3. Do you find joy in creating products that make people's lives more comfortable and enjoyable?
