Farmweld, makers of pig technology and equipment, held a groundbreaking ceremony this week for state-of-the-art offices it’s building to continue to attract “the best and the brightest” employees to the company.
"Exceptional employees are what has made Farmweld successful throughout the past 40 years, and what will carry our culture and brand into the future," said Frank Brummer, Farmweld president. “Our atmosphere is fun, and this addition will more adequately fit that, with a half-court basketball court, ping pong table and open layout, allowing for the communication level we have every day across the multiple facets of the business.”
The drawings offer a brief glance at the facility:
Brummer calls this 10,000-sq. ft. expansion “our dream office project.”
The project cultivates Farmweld’s We Care culture that reaches across customer, products and each other. He said they measure this by whether the customer and Farmweld Team feel that Farmweld cares about them.
At the groundbreaking, Brummer shared past success stories, including Lori Runde, whom has been with Farmweld for 29 years. Runde worked with the Teutopolis Village Board on improving a street on the west side of the current building, public water and sewer service and extending the TIF District.
“Without these key improvements, this expansion would not have been possible,” Runde said. Lori then went on to present Mayor Greg Hess with a “key to Farmweld” for his help and support in these projects.
