Job Snapshot

Job Description

2nd shift or 3rd shift (but we prefer the person work on 2nd shift).

Need to train on 1st shift for first 6 weeks or so.


Press carbon graphite powder into a solid product (electrical brushes).

Machine uses pressure to form the brush.

The press operator sets up the machines/changes dies, runs machines to make the body of the brush, and does quality checks.

This is a one-person operation so the candidate will set-up, operate, check quality and perform other tasks without assistance once trained.


Looking for someone who has had primary responsibility/experience setting up and running machines that produce parts.


Good job for someone who wants to have control over their work area (it's their baby). We produce 20+ million brushes per year.

They are all small in size (pack of gum or smaller).
