Taylor company opening new positions to aid business growth
Durcon Incorporated’s CEO, Cordell Bennigson, announced last week that it is creating approximately 80 new production, technical and managerial jobs at its Taylor manufacturing facility. The move is part of Durcon’s company-wide effort to support its global business goals.
“I am immensely proud to bring this many quality jobs to our area,” said Bennigson. “We are attracting candidates at all skill levels from all around the nation.”
Durcon has recently consolidated all manufacturing to its 120,000 square foot production and warehousing facility on East 4th Street (US Highway 79) and is in the process of transforming the company to meet the increasing domestic and international demand for their high performance work surfaces and related goods.
“Focusing on our operations in Taylor makes good business sense because we can draw from a deep pool of local Taylor talent and attract workers from Georgetown, Round Rock, Elgin and other cities across Williamson and Travis counties as we grow,” said Chief Financial Officer, Edward Pfaff.
Durcon has recently increased overall employee count by nearly 50% over the past six months and is continuing to recruit personnel to fill positions in all departments including Production, Molding, Sales, IT, Marketing, Accounting and Engineering. The company has already begun filling these positions and is screening recent graduates as well as seasoned professionals.
Durcon’s manufacturing in Taylor, TX, along with sales and fabrication facilities around the globe, supply the worldwide marketplace with work surfaces for laboratory and research environments requiring the highest degree of heat and chemical resistance and stone-like physical properties. Driven by a commitment to customer service, state-of-the-art chemistry and strict quality control in the manufacturing process keep Durcon at the forefront of the industry.
“The Taylor Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) is proud to call Durcon a partner in our economic development and job creation endeavors,” said TEDC President/CEO, Sean Stockard. “Durcon jobs are the exact types of jobs that are good for the Taylor community and we at the TEDC are pleased to be able to assist Durcon as they continue to grow in Taylor.”
