Dimex to add over 50 full time jobs
A local company will be adding more than 50 full-time jobs between now and December for its production area.
“We would love to find candidates who are experienced extrusion operators on either profile or calendaring lines,” said Diana Davis, human resources manager for Dimex Corporation. “Employees who can come on board and make a quick impact to our business will help us so much as we get this this next phase of growth.”
Davis said the company is also willing to train those who have the general aptitude and desire to learn.
“A successful operator here generally has experience with some type of equipment, likes to work with their hands, have some mechanical aptitude and are able to troubleshoot problems once trained,” she noted. “We are looking for candidates who have some background in an industrial type environment and can describe their experiences either at work or in their personal life that will demonstrate the right aptitude to learn to operate our equipment.”
The company’s website notes Dimex was founded in 1991 on Ohio 7 in Marietta. The organization has grown into the category leader in each of the markets it serves through product innovation.
Dimex is a green company with some 236 employees that purchases industrial plastic waste to process into new plastic compounds. It either uses the compounds or sells the new compounds to customers who make their own products.
“Internally, we produce landscape products and matting,” Davis explained. “Our landscape products are sold to professional landscapers and distributors, as well as in large retail stores and online.”
The matting was originally produced for industrial and military customers to use for safety matting, switchboard matting or anti-fatigue mats.
“However we have expanded our matting offering to the retail and online channels with under-grill mats, fitness equipment mats, and multi-purpose mats,” she added. “There are tremendous growth opportunities in other matting areas and we expect this category to grow for us well beyond 2020.”
Davis said with a growing company, there is job security that many other companies don’t have right now.
“Dimex continues to grow due to the commitment and vision of the entire team,” she explained. “Our ownership recognizes the potential in our business and our people, so they continue to make significant investments in new equipment and upgrades to our facilities and existing equipment.
She added the production team has worked a lot of overtime, so the company is recruiting to “relieve some pressure.”
For candidates who have extruder experience, there will be a higher rate of pay, but the entry rate for operators is $14 per hour. Dimex also has a full benefit package with low employee premiums, in addition to a 401K matching program and vacation eligibility.
