Charlie joined Steffes just over 5 years ago and is currently our Production Supervisor of flares and weldments at our Grand Forks West facility . In this role, Charlie supervises production in our flares and weldments areas and works to ensure that we meet both our quantity and quality objectives as Steffes’ production volume continues to grow.
Projects that stand out to Charlie are bringing on a new contract manufacturing customer recently, Wacker Neusen, and the undercarriages for Bobcat
Charlie says that what he likes most about working for Steffes are the opportunities it provides for employees, specifically the education reimbursement program. Steffes offers financial reimbursement to assist employees who wish to pursue continuing their education. The amount increases based on the number of years the employee has been with the company.
“I have been able to earn a degree in Industrial Technology from the University of North Dakota here in Grand Forks.” said Charlie. “Steffes helped out with that.”
When Charlie isn’t at Steffes, his hobbies include running a produce farm and selling the produce at local farmer’s markets on the weekends during the summer and watching his kids play hockey in the winter.
