Production Assembler So. Litchfield County, CT

Looking for a rock-solid stable company with a relaxed, non-stressful work atmosphere? This small, 50+ year-old manufacturer of large, complex systems for the Department of Defense seeks a Production Assembler to assemble and disassemble systems 20 feet square and 10 feet high. In the ‘80s, we would term a situation like this a “country club.” Their air-conditioned suburban facility is conveniently located right off Route 8. These systems are challenging, containing thousands of parts. They take 9 months to build. The wide range of components include PLC and proprietary microprocessor-based controls, hydraulics, pumps, motors, piping, high power electrical, rotating equipment, electrochemical systems, pressure switches, valves, pressure vessels, pneumatic systems, and more. Other duties besides assembly include refurbishing shipping containers, testing components, paint preparation and painting, and maintaining clean rooms to conform to federal standards. This is on day shift, 7 AM to 3:30 PM. There is occasional overtime work on Saturdays. The company provides the tools and test instruments. The hourly salary ranges from $20.00 to $28.00 per hour, and I will show them qualified Assemblers with higher requirements. Excellent benefits include Anthem Gold Century Preferred PPO after 60 days after start with employee contribution of 8% of the premium, a company-matched 401 (k) with a 50% match up to 4% of employee contribution, tuition aid, scheduled pay increases and annual 3% pay increases for union members, and more. This is a union shop, but new employees are not required to join. Requires U.S. citizenship, ability to obtain U.S. security clearance, ability to read blueprints and assembly drawings, ability to lift 50 lbs. traveling 10 feet, previous experience assembling electromechanical systems,and the ability to understand process sheets and work orders. They prefer previous welding experience, and experience working to military standards, but neither of these is required. Former military service people with technical background are strongly preferred.
