NEW JOB CREATION
Mesa Industries, Inc.
Location: East End Ownership: Private Founded: 1967 Employees: 70 President: Brian Karns Website: mesa-intl.com Business: Engineer and manufacturer of products, such as emission controls and industrial water drains for oil companies
Mesa Industries, located in the East End, has been in business for over 50 years, but the best may yet to come. The company created 16 new positions in 2018, representing a 25 percent growth in its full-time workforce. Its mid-2017 acquisition of WG Seals brought a complimentary product line and a process Mesa previously had to outsource under its roof, but it also led
to more jobs at the company. “We hired front-line managers, supervisors, production leads,” says Heather Britton, Human Resources manager. “By doing that we were able to provide our employees a direct succession path so they can see what their future would look like—not just adding those positions but being able to show them that we’re committed to their future.” Mesa added press brake operations to its facility for the first time and new positions in super v ision and sk illed operation. Britton believes this should encourage continued growth that will in turn make Mesa an employer of choice in the region. – KM
