Precision Plus Spotlight On: Matthew Enger

Precision Plus

My name is Matthew Enger, and I am Secondary Department Supervisor at Precision Plus, Inc. I am a 2011 graduate of Elkhorn Area High School. Prior to my employment at Precision Plus, I was working full-time at a company where I enjoyed working with my hands, but there were no benefits such as health insurance, paid vacation and 401K. The work was slowing to part time, and I found myself searching for secure, full-time employment with benefits and opportunities for personal growth.

Precision Plus Spotlight On: Maria Valadez

Precision Plus

My journey with Precision Plus started just two short years ago when I graduated early from Badger High School in January of 2018. Having been in the restaurant industry during my high school years, I was hungry for a different career path – one that not only provides benefits necessary for independence, but also a lifestyle allowing me to enjoy fun times with family and friends.

Last week, many area high school students had the opportunity of attending one of the largest industrial trade shows in the world, featuring more than 2,500 exhibiting companies and over 129,000 registrants. On Friday, September 14, we chartered three coach buses headed to IMTS 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Our buses were filled with 165 students, educators, and engaged parents, ready to take on this year’s show – the biggest one to date.

Preparing Students to be Career Ready

Congressman Paul Ryan during his visit to Precision Plus earlier this year.

It is a positive thing when unemployment numbers in our country are at record lows and consumer confidence is on the rise. With so much good news, it’s easy to be optimistic about the future. However, as the economy continues to grow and businesses add jobs, we need to continue to focus on the skills gap that exists in our industry’s workforce. At a recent House Republican Leadership press conference, Congressman Paul Ryan talked about “the need for more workers and especially workers with the right skills.” The jobs are there, but the right people to fill these positions are needed more than ever.
