HEXPOL Compounding Burton Campus Listed Among Top Workplaces in Northeast Ohio Third Consecutive Year

HEXPOL Compounding LLC (Burton Rubber Processing) was honored in the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Top Workplaces listing for the third consecutive year. Ranked number six in the 2017 Top Workplaces listing among 50 Northeast Ohio midsize (150 – 499 local employees) companies, Burton Rubber Processing again demonstrated the company’s commitment to its associates, valued customers, and community.

HEXPOL, a leading global provider of elastomer compounds, was among 150 companies cited in the newspaper’s eighth annual list. Employers were listed in three categories: large, midsize and small. Burton Rubber Processing, located in Burton, Ohio, was founded in 1957, with 253 associates currently working at the campus.

“Receiving this recognition is a testament to the daily efforts and pride every associate takes in their contributions to our great organization,” said John Gorrell, General Manager, Burton Rubber Processing. “I’m very proud of our team for their loyalty to making us one of the best mid-size companies to work for in Northeast Ohio. It’s a privilege to serve alongside each of them.”

The 2017 Top Workplaces list, with a theme “Secrets to Success,” was published in the Plain Dealer on June 18. Employees of participating companies responded to a detailed survey conducted by independent workplace consultant, Workplace Dynamics, based in Pennsylvania. Company rankings were based solely on employee responses to a list of statements and questions addressing multiple work-related factors.

Engaged employees agree that they are motivated to do excellent work and deliver quality products and services to their customers. Survey results certainly support this premise, with respondents indicating that the HEXPOL Burton Rubber Processing campus is comprised of individuals who are dedicated to HEXPOL through meaningful work and a vibrant connection with the company. They stressed the benefits of a positive culture and the support provided through personal and leadership development programs. Respondents also have a strong belief that HEXPOL Compounding is moving in the right direction.

“It is truly an honor for our company to be recognized for the third consecutive year as one of the best mid-size companies to work for in Northeast Ohio,” Gorrell said. “There is an enormous amount of respect and admiration among the entire team. We genuinely believe in the possibilities of our associates and are indebted to their extraordinary contributions that enable us to be highly successful.”
