    Was good .... back in the 90's

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Hutchinson, MN

    ProsVery good training and safety record. They have some very high tech processes and machinery as well as great people to work with.

    ConsWhen the original founder stepped away from the day-to-day operation of the company they got caught up in the "Ayn Rand" philosophy and the company has gone downhill from then.
