  • Production Technicians work in a warehouse/industrial environment and use their hands to wire (fixture), de-wire (de-fixture), inspect, clean, and pack customer parts (metal parts: such as injection molds, gun slides, gears, pinions, knife blades, etc.). This position requires employees to wear a 1/2 face respiratory mask when unloading and loading the vapor degreaser (our vapor degreaser is a machine that uses solvent vapors to cleanse and remove contaminants off of parts).
