Marion Machine Offers Apprenticeships!

Marion Machine, in Marion, NC, is known for its reputation for quality, and overall industry know how.

They have been a go-to in the aggregate industry for machining for many years. So, it just made sense for them to offer an apprenticeship program.  I mean who else better to train the future of the aggregate industry than Marion Machine?

I had the chance to sit down and talk to Marion Machine’s Patrick Ellis, General Manager, and Brandon Godman, Sales Engineer, and pick their brains a bit regarding their apprenticeship program. Found out how great they both are at what they do, and overall. 

Brandon was very excited about the program and said, “Come to Marion machine and get paid to go to school, learn to work the Marion way, and make a career out of your education. You can get a job anywhere, but where else can you get a career, and an education that will serve you until retirement.”

Tomorrow’s jobs will require more knowledge, better skills, and more flexible workers than ever before.

Marion wants to pave the way for the next generation of workers that will be leading this industry into the future. Patrick Ellis had this to say, “The Apprenticeship Program through the community college system and Marion Machine is a win for both the company and the employee.  We get to train our employees here on site by standards and hours set by North Carolina, and the local community college does the classroom work.  In the long run, the employee is more valuable to the company and has confidence in the work they perform.  I am looking forward to seeing each employee grow as they make it through this program.”

Our Metso HP 800 Mainframe had a loose shaft and we re-fit the shaft back to OEM specs with a 2-week-turnaround to get a 3.5-million-ton-plant back up and running.
