According to the 2016 United States Census, only 29% of workers in the manufacturing industry are women. This percentage has stayed consistent over the years with only a 0.4% increase in female employees since 1970. Here at Monti, Angela Bailey is defying the odds.
Angela started at Monti in January 2008. Her previous work had given her experience with operating CNC machining, but she was not versed in their programming. When she joined the team, she engaged in training that taught her how to set up programs and successfully run the machines. Soon after, she began doing set-ups for the lathe department on the third shift. Angela was the first person to operate this department on the night shift and began practicing her leadership skills along the way when she trained multiple people on the position she just mastered herself.
Monti receives Cincy Magazine’s 2019 MANNY Award for best place to work. Manufacturers from across the Tristate, including Monti, were recognized at Cincy Magazine’s 13th Annual MANNY Awards on June 13th, at JACK Casino.
Monti was selected in part due to employee longevity, a willingness to promote from within and its educational opportunities for growth. Many employees have taken advantage of the continued education program and gone on to leadership roles within the company.

As a result, we will continue to conduct business while maintaining our top priority of keeping our employees and customers safe. We plan to split our workforce up into teams with a split schedule to limit physical interaction and plan to work a standard 8-hour day without overtime. We will be following both our local government and the CDC’s recommendations and guidelines closely. We continue to ramp up our daily sanitation schedule of our plant in order to keep our employees healthy.
We plan to prioritize jobs by importance and ask that our customers relay their jobs that can be pushed out to a later delivery date. Please stay in touch with your sales engineer to advise us of your plans to close or remain operational. We will continue to update our website as our status changes so you can be sure to plan accordingly.
