We’re celebrating National Employee Ownership Month and our 1st anniversary of being an employee owned company! We asked our employees what it means to be employee owned. Here’s what our employees have to say.
We are celebrating ESOP month with several activities! Weekly gifts, ESOP trivia, 2 truths and a lie, Boss’s Day fun and several other celebrations are planned!
What Our Employees Say About Working for an Employee Owned Company
Since becoming an ESOP company, I’ve seen the culture start to evolve to become more collaborative where everyone is pulling for the same goals.
Kate BohnertMarketing Manager
ESOP to me is taking pride and ownership in our work. Now not only does it affect the company, it affects you. And even more so now, we’re always looking to squeeze a dollar out of every dime.
It means an awesome responsibility that has the potential to reap incredible results. It means that we are all in this together, and we have the opportunity to create a more secure future for ourselves, just by doing what we do on an everyday basis.

ESOP is added incentive to do a better job. As employees, we are now more invested in this company.
To be employee owned means that all customers are my customers. I leave an impression with my customers that makes them want to talk about MEC in a positive connotation. It says a lot when you receive great feedback from happy customers that have just had a machine malfunction that negatively impacted their own business. We serve my customers so that they can serve their customers.
ESOP has helped push the mind set of “customer first.” Take care of the customer and everything else will follow. It really helps create this sort of bigger picture.

Knowing that we’re ESOP makes me want to work harder to help everyone around me. It really creates a strong team atmosphere.
Ashley GiffinEquipment Coordinator
Since ESOP came into effect, we have collectively become a better team. We come together to make things happen, including finding different ways for the company to save.
