NAZARETH, Pa., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry Secretary Kathy Manderino continued the "Jobs that Pay" tour at C. F. Martin & Co. in Nazareth yesterday.
C. F. Martin & Co. is one of the world's leading acoustic instrument makers. Chris Martin, sixth generation Martin family member and current CEO, provided a tour of the company's museum. Secretary Manderino also toured the factory and held a roundtable discussion with Martin executives about the company's success in recruiting and retaining skilled employees.
"From hiring to retiring Martin Guitar is laser-focused on its employees," Manderino said. "Martin is committed to more-than-fair compensation, emphasis on career paths, cross-training, and making the company not just a business, but a family.
"It was refreshing to learn that new employees' good work is quickly rewarded with pay increases, co-workers participate in profit-sharing, and that continued training and development are priorities. C. F. Martin & Co. exemplifies Governor Wolf's vision for jobs that pay."
Martin guitars are hand-made by skilled craftsmen and women who use a combination of new design and techniques along with those introduced by the company founder in 1833. For more information, visit https://www.martinguitar.com/.
