    I worked at Grede full-time for more than 8 years


    Believed that their employees were their most important resource.
    Rewarded hard work.
    Reinvested profits.


    Stretched themselves too thin by acquiring questionable plants.
    Hesitated to raise casting pricing whenever warranted.
