Company Description

MRS Machining is this year’s Top Shops Honors Program winner in the human resources category. A women-owned small business since 1986, the Augusta, Wisconsin contract shop has built its business on relationships and family values. It works with local high schools such as Eleva-Strum Central High School (where it also donated CNC machines) and the Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) to improve their skilled trades programs in part because the company has a critical, ongoing need for capable, qualified people. MRS Machining also hosts annual tours during which groups of students get to see the shop. Ongoing education is another aspect of its in-house training to nurture its workers’ skills.

The shop offers a range of employee benefits and programs including a 401(k) plan, paid medical benefits, apprenticeship program, formal safety/health program and leadership/supervisor program. The average age of its shopfloor employees is only 31, but the average years of experience is 9.
