Part Packager/Press Brake Operator - Dayshift

2638 310th St
Rock Valley, IA

PLEASE NOTE: This job involves continuously lifting, carrying, and packaging of heavy parts.  This is not a small part packaging position.

Type of Position: Dayshift - Full-time

Wanted - a hard-working team-player who enjoys working with their hands, to join the Part Packaging and Bending teams at the Midwest's premier laser cutting job shop. We are looking for the right person who can help Kooima Company achieve its goals by unloading and packaging our customer's flat steel parts, and by operating a press brake.

If this interests you, here are some of the things you would be doing to help us meet our goal:

  • Unloading and sorting customers' steel parts from our state-of-the-art flat laser automation system
  • Ensuring our customers receive the correct order by matching up parts to work orders, counting parts, and completing work orders
  • Providing our customers with the finest parts possible by operating and maintaining press brakes
  • Fabricating high quality parts by setting up, loading, and producing bent steel parts
  • Handling, packaging, and bending a wide variety of customer parts in various sizes, shapes, and metal thicknesses
  • Ensuring that the finished parts and packaging meet our world class standards
  • Working with a high degree of efficiency, skill, and quality to help keep our customers' costs reasonable

If you can accomplish the above, you've got what it takes. Realistically though, to enjoy this job and be successful, you need to like performing manual labor tasks. You also need to be flexible to do whatever work needs to be done.  We prefer that you have at least some experience operating machinery or working with metal, but we are willing to train the right person.  In addition, you need to be able to read the work orders, repeatedly lift up to 80 pounds, and learn new things quickly.

Required Skills:

  • Ability to read work orders and communicate verbally with others
  • Ability to repeatedly lift up to 80 pounds
