“Väderstad farm machinery is built to create the optimum environment, allowing for perfect emergence in your field. Whether it’s cultivation, seedbed preparation or seed placement, our vision is to ensure perfect emergence to maximize yield. Together we will make you an even more successful farmer.”
Väderstad, one of the world’s leading companies in seeding, planting and tillage, is set to ramp up production once again at the production facility in Langbank.
Strong commodity prices and growing markets have led to an increased demand of products manufactured at the facility. To meet these growing demands Väderstad Industries continues to ramp up the production process by actively recruiting for multiple positions in the production plant
As Väderstad Industries continue to ramp up production, the company held a production job fair in Moosomin recently to fill these production opportunities.
“The job fair went moderately well,” says Tatum Larose, talent acquisition specialist with Väderstad Industries. “Although it wasn’t as big a turnout as we hoped, we were able to fill six positions.”
“We’re looking to fill production positions up until November.”
Väderstad implemented a second shift in the evening in late June to the daily schedule with shift premiums.
With just over 200 employees today, the company is looking for more recruits.
“We’re hoping to fill many positions mainly in the production facility including welders, assembly technicians, paint prep technicians, and material handlers in the warehouse,” explains Larose.
Benefits to working at Väderstad Industries include a company matched pension, group health benefits, a health spending account, and 48 hours of paid discretionary time off.
In order to meet production demands Väderstad is looking to hire hardworking and motivated individuals for multiple production positions.
“We are increasing production volumes 60 per cent to meet current market demands,” explains Jared Varjassy, manufacturing director at Väderstad.
“Currently we have job openings for 55 people throughout various parts of our business to help us achieve our output requirement,” says Varjassy.
“Our units get delivered to customers throughout the world with the strongest concentration being Western Canada,” explains Varjassy. “Some of the countries we ship to include the U.S.A., Australia, Sweden, Ukraine and Russia.”
