June 11, 2019 – Farmweld held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the state-of-the-art offices it’s building to continue to attract “the best and the brightest” employees to Farmweld. The social setting of the event was supplemented with pork food, drinks and networking amongst the business and media attendees.
“Exceptional employees are what has made Farmweld successful throughout the past 40 years, and what will carry our culture and brand into the future,” said Frank Brummer, Farmweld President. “Our atmosphere is fun, and this addition will more adequately fit that, with a half-court basketball court, ping pong table and open layout, allowing for the communication level we have every day across the multiple facets of the business.”
Frank calls this 10,000 square foot expansion “our dream office project.” He goes on to say how this project cultivates Farmweld’s We Care culture. Farmweld cares about the customer, products and each other, and measures this by whether the customer and Farmweld Team feel that Farmweld cares about them.
At the groundbreaking, Frank shared some past stories and thanked everyone who has helped get Farmweld to this point. One of those is Lori Runde, whom has been with Farmweld for 29 years, and worked with the Teutopolis Village Board on improving a street on the west side of the current building, public water and sewer service and extending the TIF District. “Without these key improvements, this expansion would not have been possible,” says Lori Runde. Lori then went on to present Mayor Greg Hess with a “key to Farmweld” for his help and support in these projects.
All attendees received a gift from Farmweld for attending the groundbreaking and helping to celebrate the new offices to come. Other renderings from the architects of the addition are shown here.
