Springfield, OH – The McGregor Metalworking Companies recently announced an immediate increase in hourly wages for its entry-level and mid-level hourly associates. These new hourly rates affect all McGregor manufacturing plants in Springfield including Morgal Machine Tool Company, Rose City Manufacturing, Inc., Ohio Stamping and Machine and Carmichael Machine Corporation.
The increase is a sliding scale up to $16 per hour. The previous entry level wage of $11 per hour increased to $13 per hour, while $14 per hour associates are now at $15 per hour. McGregor anticipates this adjustment will affect more than 100 current full-time associates plus all of its temporary workers. “Despite the $400,000 impact to our bottom line, we view this increase as an investment in our associates, our customers and our operations,” commented Tom Wright, President of McGregor Metalworking. “We are focused on identifying solutions to our workforce shortage and this is a bold commitment to that end,” he added.
“Attracting talent necessitated this move,” said Kara Williams, Director of Human Resources at McGregor. “Our hope is to encourage entry level associates to join McGregor and teach them a skill with the ultimate goal of achieving a higher hourly wage range at $25 per hour plus,” she continued.
The McGregor Metalworking Companies are currently taking applications for a variety of salaried and hourly positions open across all of its four Springfield manufacturing locations.
