In sectors of manufacturing that remain "dirty jobs", like foundries and casting, it's even more important to have a fantastic company culture, where word of mouth brings in new employees and liking what you do is paramount. On this episode, Ari talks to Chris deGruchy, Principal and General Manager of Cast Rite Metal, about his company culture that keeps people engaged with transparency and care.

Chris tells Ari about his business journey and they talk about the puzzle pieces that make up a great business. Chris shares that it took several years to really love what he does, but it was completely worth it.

Together they discuss the importance of building and growing relationships throughout a career. You never know when someone you met years ago might become your best advocate, or your next customer. 

Chris has a passion for American Manufacturing and loves to share it!
