Neenah | Oconto P eople are the key to Nercon's success. The company is always looking for new talent, especially people eager to bring their energy to the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Oconto County or engineering facility in Neenah — both places rich in recreational pursuits to enjoy when the workday is done. "Nercon has been intentional about hiring the best people we can find who want to call Northeast Wisconsin their home," says Vice President Steve Anklam. "The people who have helped build this company and are producing our equipment range in education from those with GEDs to those with master's degrees." What does Nercon do? It's a leading manufacturer of conveyor systems — equipment that helps other manufacturers move parts and products in efficient ways. Nercon employees have enjoyed long-term success in engineering, design, manufacturing, sales and administrative roles. Founded in 1976, the company has invested in modern fabrication equipment, an environmentally-friendly new powder- paint line, and 21st Century manufacturing technologies. "The benefits of modern manufacturing are better, more reliable products for Nercon's customers, increased efficiencies, and yes, even more interesting careers," Anklam says. "All the technology and modern manufacturing improvements are meaningless without good people." Tuition reimbursement, company-sponsored sporting events and even a traveling trophy for the company's fantasy football league are just some of the perks of working for Nercon. Employees at the company's Neenah headquarters also enjoy an on-site fitness center. Nercon employees are proud of their Midwest work ethic, he says, "Working hard, solving problems — and even having fun — doing what you are doing." Want to know more about opportunities at Nercon?
