Was a great company before Nortek bought it
Brake Press Operator (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – 3 November 2015
Corporate greed, was the downfall of this business. They were bought by Nortek, we weren't making them enough money, so they closed the plant down. Before that, it was actually a good place to work. Every business has good and bad about it, and in my humble opinion, the good out weighed the bad. True some of the management decisions were questionable, but the environment as a whole was good. We built large HVAC units that went on top of big buildings or on the sides of schools or offices, and we were all very good at our jobs. We got bought by a company in minnesota, and they shut us down because we were costing them money. Pay could have been better, but you got more than enough overtime to compensate for it. Most folks there were awesome co workers, but there were a few bad apples that tended to spoil the barrel. I'll miss this place, and I will never buy a nortek product, and will encourage everyone I can to do the same.
nortek came along and shut them down.
