Hamilton Caster & Mfg. Co. employees value company's positive impact

Hamilton Caster & Mfg. Co. has boasted success in the manufacturing industry ever since its doors opened in 1907. However, the family owned and operated company is as much about community involvement and commitment to its employees as it is about constant improvement and innovation of its products.

"We are convinced that the best indicator that people like working here is that they stay a long time," says president Dave Lippert. Employees at Hamilton Caster average 18.4 years with the company and enjoy a vast array of company benefits including health insurance, three to four weeks paid vacation, a defined benefit pension plan, company-paid life insurance, and disability insurance. Employees value their jobs and respect the positive impact the company has had on the community. Many have even joined the family's crusade to reach out in local volunteer efforts.

The Lippert family serves on executive committees for various community organizations and is particularly dedicated to United Way. Hamilton Caster gives to the United Way campaign each year and encourages all employees to participate individually through payroll deduction. Other local organizations Hamilton Caster is involved with include Fitton Center for Creative Arts, Hamilton County Foundation and the Greater Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.
