Investing in Workforce Development to Increase Capacity
Amidst the national discussion around labor shortages, New England Electropolishing has invested in workforce development to expand our capacity and meet a sharp increase in demand for our services. New England Electropolishing provides services to many critical industries including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, laboratories, and defense manufacturers. As a result, our continued operation is integral to the flow of goods to essential industries.
NEE refocused its recruiting and training efforts over the last year, hiring 4 new electropolishers and an experienced Quality Supervisor. These key personnel additions are intended to maintain NEE’s reputation as the industry’s most responsive and reliable metal finisher.
Respect for our employee contributions is a big reason that New England Electropolishing has become one of the largest electropolishing companies in the nation. Our employee-focused work environment has enabled NEE to retain long–term, experienced staff members and attract skilled new talent. NEE is proud of our commitment to a loyal, hardworking and diverse workforce.
Our efforts have led to the following improvements:
- 40% growth in capacity on our first shift
- Increase in our ability to take on additional projects and new customers without sacrificing quality or delivery with our existing customer base
This translates into a consistent, reliable experience for our clients in critical industries and to meet existing customer needs while taking on new clients.
“Many of our customers are behind schedule before their parts hit our dock. Because NEE has the both proficiency and flexibility, we can turn parts around quickly — without sacrificing quality. Our customers rely on us because we get the job done. We meet their most demanding requirements, every time.” says COO Luke Almeida. “Having a highly trained and reliable workforce is key to making that happen.”
