Founded in the basement of one of the founders in 1981, West Michigan-based Flow-Rite Controls
has quietly grown to a company of over 150, operating out of a 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Byron Center.
The vertically integrated manufacturing firm specializes in fluids. It designs, manufactures and markets a wide variety of fluid control devices for lead acid batteries, laboratory, medical use, and recreation fishing boats.
Bridgett Haley, marketing communication specialist, says the firm is actively recruiting to fill up six open positions.
For job seekers, Haley describes Flow-Rite as medium-sized company but with a small business mentality. "There are many reasons to join our team," Haley says. "Managers maintain open-door policies; cross-team collaboration is strongly encouraged; and people can really see their hard work having a direct effect on an organization. Most importantly, there are many opportunities for personal and professional growth including cross-training, volunteering at local charities, leadership classes, mentoring, and more."
Haley says for many of the job opportunities,
two qualities stand out the most: "Passion and a can-do attitude are the top qualities we look for when hiring for a position."
Flow-Rite is located at 960 74th Street S.W. in Byron Center. To learn more about the company, you can visit their site here.
