“This is an opportunity for us to help the local economy and add some talented people to our team,” said Tony Bloom, owner of Mohawk Metal. “Winnebago employees are well-trained and have skills very similar to what we need at Mohawk.”
According to the company, Mohawk Metal “is currently involved in projects including a local stadium in Eugene and Rainier Tower, a 58-story skyscraper in downtown Seattle.”
“No job is too big or too small for Mohawk Metal,” said Bloom. “That’s why we always need a variety of employees and skill-sets so we can be a single source for our clients across the country.”
