Menasha-based electrical, engineering and technology systems contractor Faith Technologies has announced it will hire 800 full-time employees across its 14 national locations by September.
The company, which currently has 1,900 employees, is growing as a result of increased demand from the industrial, data center/mission critical, multifamily/high-rise construction and health care industries as they expand.
Faith Technologies has not yet been determined how many of the new hires will be based in Wisconsin, said Mike Weller, chief operating officer. Its employees are spread pretty evenly among its facilities, which are located in: Menasha, Appleton, Pewaukee, Green Bay, La Crosse, Madison, Plover, Sheboygan and Peshtigo, Wis.; Maplewood, Minn.; Springfield, Mo.; Atlanta, Ga.; Lenexa, Kansas; and Tulsa, Okla.
Weller said some of the company’s workforce is fluid and travels to job sites, so it would not make a difference where they are based.
“If these journeymen are willing to travel, then it really makes no difference where they live,” he said. “It all depends on the opportunity we have to have good candidates apply that meet our requirements.”
The company made the decision to hire 800 employees because of “strong opportunities in the backlog as well as being invited to the table on future opportunities in growth markets that we are able to participate in and be a strong player with,” Weller said.
About 365 of the available positions are in the company’s Excellerate business unit, which creates manufacturing solutions for the construction industry through pre-assembly, usually in its Menasha or Appleton locations. Available Excellerate positions include general assemblers, manufacturing leads, logistics managers, logistics specialists and onsite logistics specialists.
About 75 of the positions are in the industrial unit, and positions include journeymen, apprentices and helpers.
Other open positions include: tower technicians, electrical risk management technicians, service technicians, foremen, material handlers, superintendents, pneumatics installers, designers, engineers, estimators, and computer-aided design technicians.
Faith Technologies will hold a Milwaukee job fair on June 16 from 3 to 7 p.m., in addition to other job fairs near its facilities. For more information, visit faithtechnologies.com/careers.
“Faith Technologies is experiencing strong growth and now has the opportunity to add more than 800 positions, more than a 40 percent increase to our team,” Weller said. “The positions we are hiring for are long-term positions with the company, with many opportunities for career advancement. We are eager to bring new talent to our team across the country, and all are encouraged to apply.”
