Busch Precision and Board Partner to Manage Business Growth through Job Placements

Executives at the 105-year-old company used a mix of recruiting efforts to attract talent, which included On-The-Job-Training assistance for new hires.

Busch Precision Inc, a Milwaukee leader in industrial machining, announces the addition of seven new hires to their expanding team since the start of the New Year. Busch has long been a trusted machine shop specializing in large, unique, tight tolerance machining projects and equipment maintenance, repair, and rebuild services. With an emphasis on expanding local client relations and a growing need from within the industrial segment, the company has sought out unique recruiting options to meet their growing operations and order fulfillment needs. For Busch, identifying experienced talent is not unlike the challenges faced by their fellow industrial based peers; good talent can prove difficult to come by. This can be especially true for the 105 year old company. Every new employee is vetted to ensure their personality and dedication to excellence is a compatible match to the Busch culture.  

To locate top quality, skilled workers both inside the office and out on the production floor, Busch has used a combination of recruiting efforts including participation in local job fairs, online solicitation, and industry recruiters. With the support of local workforce development and associate technical degree programs, the company is fast on the course to filling key positions. With support from the Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington Workforce Development Board’s On-The-Job-Training assistance and alliance with local Technical Colleges the company is integrating high aptitude hires in an active work study program that is building the next generation of skilled professionals. Already in 2013, Busch has hired two repair rebuild professionals bringing the mechanics department to a total of five. They have also added two machinists, one programmer, an HR Manager, and a Customer Relations Manager. “This is only the beginning”, says Mike Mallwitz, President. The company plans to add an additional six machinists and four more machine repair rebuild technicians over the next twelve months.
