    Flexible, fair and honest organization. Does not make promises it cannot keep Management strives to promote from within Flat & matrix organization that allows individuals to grow within their role. Great opportunity to develop and grow if willing to relocate Great opportunity for those into R&D, chance to technologically contribute in a major way to the primary metals, metalworking, coatings and grease lubrication industries


    Movement within the organization tends to be slow as understanding the business, technologies, customers and their processes takes time to develop.
