Job Description

MOLDING MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN
Are you a self-starter who enjoys keeping machinery and equipment in top condition? Do you like installing new equipment? Are you a high energy individual who prefers a schedule that is never the same two days in a row?
If you share our passion for working together to provide customers with high performance solutions using cutting edge technology, and have what it takes to keep that technology in top working order, then Met2Plastic is the company for you. We will invest in your success by providing a management team that is supportive, communicative and committed to your success.
Who are we? We are already part of your life. When you checked the expiration date before you poured your milk this morning--we make components for the printer that sprayed the date on the bottle. When you enjoyed the fizz in your soft drink--we produce the component that adds the bubbles. When you saw the "fasten your seatbelt" sign light up on your last airplane ride, you may have been looking at aircraft interior components made here at Met2Plastic.
