Detroit Free Press Names Douglas Dynamics A Winner of 2017 Top Workplaces Award

MILWAUKEE (Nov. 21, 2017) –Douglas Dynamics, LLC, parent company of SnowEx®, based in Madison Heights, Mich., has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press.

The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, formerly Workplace Dynamics, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“We’re honored that SnowEx employees see the company as a rewarding place to work and build a fulfilling career. It’s a testament to the company’s values of accountability, excellence, innovation, leadership and fostering a collaborative environment,” said Linda Evans, vice president of human resources at Douglas Dynamics, LLC. “Our leadership team is proud of what the people in this company have achieved, and it is our privilege to provide a workplace that has the ability to attract top talent in Michigan and allow them to grow, thrive and enjoy coming to work here.”

Based in Milwaukee, Douglas Dynamics is North America’s premier manufacturer and up-fitter of commercial work truck attachments and equipment. As one of only a handful of organizations to make the list of Top Workplaces in Michigan, Douglas Dynamics maintains one of the lowest turnover rates in the industry, an accomplishment the company attributes to employee empowerment and ongoing skill development initiatives. The company employs 65 people in Michigan, and approximately 1,700 people in four manufacturing facilities and six truck equipment centers across the United States, plus an office in Beijing, China.
