Excel is Hiring Again!

story excel hiring 640 Excel is Hiring Again!

After a multi-year ‘cooling off,’ the markets which Excel serves are starting to heat up again. Excel has been actively reviewing applications, interviewing candidates, and adding to our workforce. As commodity prices in the mining sector continue to improve, oil prices stabilize, and aggregate production in the United States remains strong, the demand for our premium replacement components is growing. Excel is pushing to meet this demand by stocking parts while at the same time continuing to meet rush order demands from operations that are coming back online. To meet this new and welcome influx of business, we are gearing up our capacity. In order to achieve this, the ‘right’ people are needed throughout our operation

Excel has hired 16 employees since the start of 2017 in a variety of positions, including: CNC Machinists, Foundry Technicians, Engineers, Customer Support and Warehouse Technicians. Director of Human Resources, Steve Stewart, mentioned that with the job market beginning to take an upturn, it has been somewhat ‘challenging’ to recruit employees. However, Excel has discovered some outstanding people and will work hard to continue this trend as the year continues. As the economy is starting to grow again, competition for great employees is stiff in Greater Peoria.

Excel’s inventory is also seeing a reduction as parts are being moved in our Warehouse which have remained stationary for the last few years. Warehouse Manager, Mike Sammis, mentioned that while all shovel and crusher parts are moving, Excel’s undercarriage components are seeing the most traffic. He states, “Shipping is seeing much higher volumes than the last few years with the increase in customer demand – especially our undercarriage parts for hydraulic excavators and electric rope shovels. Our employees have maintained a great attitude throughout this process and look forward to future growth.”

Currently, Excel has openings for: CNC Machinists, Final Parts Finishing and Finish Technicians. If you know someone in the Greater Peoria area who is looking for a great company, we are looking for great people! Have them visit www.ExcelFoundry.com/careers where they can submit a resume or complete an application.
