People who start at LEESTA stay at LEESTA. Over half of our employees have worked with us for over a decade. We pride ourselves on low employee turnover which is a testament to the culture and environment we have built on a foundation of sincere values we uphold and exhibit every day. Here are some thoughtful quotes from some of our valued team members.
"I came to LEESTA many years ago with a group from Dawson for a plant tour in my second year of study. And at that time LEESTA was extremely ahead of the game as they were actually the first company to have an FMS system. The FMS [flexible manufacturing system] gives you the flexibility of running several different parts on many different faces which was very innovative at the time. After the tour I thought to myself 'This would be a place I would like to work someday.' Fast-forward 20 years or so later and I am a manager at the same company that gave us a chance to tour their plant. That says something."
"LEESTA has a great group of dedicated employees who all get along. It's a big family who welcomes more to join. LEESTA is a growing company with so much potential, whose people face and conquer their challenges together."
"One thing that has always fascinated me is our number of 'long-time' employees we have. That says a lot about the LEESTA as an employer and the employees that work here."
"About 7% of our employees have worked at LEESTA for over 30 years, about 15% of our employees have worked at LEESTA for over 20 years and about 29% for over 10 years."
