MINSTER — Twenty-five students from Marion Local High School’s Industrial Technology Club toured Precision Strip to see its processing capabilities in action.

Information was shared with the students about various career paths and Precision Strip’s philosophy of promoting from within. As explained, associates may begin their career as a packaging technician within the production setting, but with some provided training and development, are able to promote to other opportunities.

“You are our future. We’re very fortunate to have young adults in our communities who have solid work ethic, ambition, and are dependable,” Matt Murray, general manager of the Minster campus, said. He encouraged the students who may be undecided on a career choice, to return to Precision Strip for a one-on-one job shadow experience.

Precision Strip was founded in 1977 in Minster, Ohio. Over the past 39 years, it has grown to 12 locations throughout Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, and Michigan and employs over 1,200 associates. Facilities include three million square feet of building space with in-house engineered slitting and cut-to-length processing lines along with a fleet of over 200 company owned trucks. Each plant is strategically located to provide warehousing and delivery of steel and aluminum coils to the automotive, appliance, industrial products, and beverage can industries.
