Additional Culture Details
Since being acquired in 2017, Avon Machining invested over five million dollars towards equipment updates, building and safety enhancements, and increased wages. Avon adopted a people-first culture, guided by the simple core principle to treat others the way you want to be treated. Understanding this philosophy is based upon purpose and values, it became our catalyst for change. We enhanced our people from a top-down model approach; elevating the expectation to lead by example. We engaged our employees to share what was most important to them. We implemented small gestures, such as monthly birthday treats, recognizing anniversaries, and rewarding perfect attendance. A more significant implementation was launching our onsite quality training program, in partnership with Macomb Community College; year one being awarded 18 certifications. Our success was evident by being named a Top 100 Workplace, 4 consecutive years in a row.
