Modern Engineering News Modern Engineering Wins BUSINESS OF THE YEAR
Modern Engineering is known as a solutions provider for CNC automation and machining, milling and turning. They are an industry leader and one of the most experienced and modern machine shops in BC, supplying customers from Europe and New Zealand, to North America. As a family-owned business, they attribute much of their success to their valued employees, who are able to participate in a profit sharing program introduced in 2011.
“I felt proud of the people of our company. Many people go to work day in and day out feeling that no one cares about what they are doing,” responded General Manager, Udo Jahn, “It is nice for them to be recognized.“
“I believe we won for two reasons,” Jahn replies when asked about the win, “First, Modern is an innovative company that believes in continuous investment in its equipment and employees, allowing us to strive for global competitiveness.”
“Second,” Jahn continues, “We reach out to high schools, and employ young people with a desired interest in manufacturing, giving them the opportunity to participate in this field while still attending school. We believe in giving young people—who are largely ignored by businesses because of their lack of experience- the chance at a real career, and we are willing to train them throughout the stages of growth necessary.”
This outlook is why Modern Engineering is a true trailblazer and innovator of the industry, and their community.
