AFCO Industries Inc.
Employees at AFCO Industries Inc. take an extra degree of pride in their work not only because they enjoy their jobs, but because they have a personal stake in the company’s financial health. The company is 100 percent employee-owned, giving its staff incentive to make sure its products and customer relationships are in the best possible condition.
“There’s a huge empowerment for employees to take care of a company that belongs to them,” says Rick Harrison, director of sales and marketing for the Alexandria, La.-based aluminum extruder. “From the people who drill the metal and pack the parts to those in accounting, IT and our other departments, as the company goes, so do they.”
