In addition to its portfolio, many improvements were made to the physical layout of Marquardt’s local facility. Areas of the production, testing and shipping departments have been reorganized and simplified, utilizing much of the building’s vertical space. The cafeteria also underwent substantial improvements, along with streamlined entryways onto and off of the production floor, and many of the offices were refurbished to include natural light – enhancing employee workspace and easing electricity usage.
Amid high unemployment numbers nationwide, the company currently boasts the largest workforce in the history of the Cazenovia location, with about 450 employees. However, Marquardt is always looking for skilled workers to join its team.
About 20 openings currently exist in the year-round internship program, and the company was recently approved for a third apprenticeship. Marquardt will be looking for an individual to train as an electronic technician over the course of four years, through a plan certified by New York state.
