    I worked at Means Industries.


    Gave me a fantastic shot, before I'd even graduated from college. Quickly earned more responsibility up until the closure of the plant, which was a direct result of the downturn in automotive.


    It appeared to me that in the two years I was employed there, that my plant was doomed to closure. We did not appear to have the support of the corporate office, and I was told it had been that way for years. We had to make do with what we had and perform to the same standards of the other plants. I felt the plant was an incredible success, seeing as how little support we received. Ultimately, we were rewarded with the closure of the plant. It was the easiest option given the economic situation and I don't blame Senior Management for it. It's just a shame there were no other options.

    Advice to Management

    They were doing a good job considering the environment throughout 2009. It appears clear that they have no intentions on keeping any of the clutch-plate business, but there is also no sign of them picking up anything new to replace it. Their one-way clutch is successful, but not enough so that they can keep their other plant open without some sort of influx of new business.
