Metal Processing International in Mission, Texas received the Texas Manufacturing Star Award from the Texas Workforce Commission at a business conference May 4.
The business will received the award during the conference’s opening ceremony at the McAllen Convention Center. Debbie Pitts, TWC communications representative, said the Mission company was honored for keeping jobs in Texas.
“It is given to employers that made the effort to train their workers, to keep jobs in Texas,” Pitts said. “Rather than having them go overseas and cut their labor force, instead they actually grow and have trained their workforce to make that possible. That is the reason they were chosen.”
The company, which provides innovative electro-coating of manufactured metal components, has grown from 33 employees in 2007 to nearly 130 in 2012.
