Durham Recruiting is conducting a search on behalf of our manufacturing client located in the Woodbridge area for the position of Electrician (442A preferred). Our partner is over 40 years old and has become the world leader in their industry. They are a global systems solutions provider and now operate in 10 countries serving 100’s of customers worldwide.


** Rotating shifts between days and afternoons with the potential for a week of nights in the rotation from time to time **


The Opportunity:


In a nutshell, you will be a part of a large maintenance team to install, align, move, maintain, troubleshoot and repair the various machines throughout the factory:

  • Wiring to print and troubleshooting of low voltage AC/DC circuits and PLC components input/output devices.  AC/DC drive motor troubleshooting and repairs.
  • Maintenance of robotic manipulators, high-bay lighting, machine annunciators, warning lights and horns/bells as well as machine limits.
  • Fabrication and installation of new conduit and wiring, plumbing, hose and metal tubing installation.
  • General welding, cutting, sheet metal fabrication, machine lubrication, replacement of input/output devices, basic motor wiring and replacement will be routinely assigned duties.
  • Looking for candidates that are working a lot of overtime
  • Will participate in Lean Activities

What Stood Out For Us:


While the company has been around for decades and expanded globally, they still strive to be that small close-knit team usually only small companies achieve. The CEO still to this day walks the plant floor and knows all of the maintenance teams’ names!


A stable unionized facility (that just completed their collective bargaining) now is a great time to come on board. With a diversified product line serving the automotive and non-automotive sectors, the company is set up for long-term success.
