Monti Inc. Participates in Manufacturing Day to Introduce Youth to Manufacturing Careers
Monti Inc.’s commitment to moving the manufacturing industry forward is evident with their support of Manufacturing Day, an introduction for high school students to learn about different manufacturing careers.
Manufacturing day is the first Friday in October but continues throughout the month. The series of events help showcase modern manufacturing careers by encouraging companies and educational institutions to open their doors to students, teachers and community leaders.
As students attended a virtual event with Monti Inc., they learned about the types of work, met current employees and discovered first-hand about Monti’s team atmosphere. In preparation of the tours, Monti Inc. produced a video overview that introduced team members and career paths to those in attendance.
By sharing what it is like to work at Monti, students got a first-hand view into a career in manufacturing. “The culture at Monti is collaborative and exciting,” said Molly Fender, VP Human Resources. “When you walk the floor at Monti, you’ll see people working hard, having fun and solving problems.”

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.

Adam Richendollar has been part of the Monti family since 2012. Immediately after high school, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Network Systems Communication Management from DeVry University. Unable to find a job in his field after graduation, Adam started working at Walmart to support his family. He knew this wasn’t a long-term solution and continued to look for a more fulfilling career.

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.
