Mercury Minnesota

      On Wednesday January 22nd, our club had a presentation from Cory Caron, General Manager of Mercury Minnesota. Cory is a Faribault native, and has worked his way up the ranks at Mercury Minnesota from an entry level job as a grinder, a welder, a designer with CAD, various management roles and now to his current position as General Manager. Cory and his lovely wife Sarah have three boys.  He is involved with Boy Scouts, and is a marriage preparation counselor at his church for couples getting ready to wed. He enjoys skiing, hunting, fishing and playing a good game of cards, especially the game of 500.
      Mercury Minnesota has a long, strong history.  Mercury Air Craft was started in New York. In 1957 Mercury Minnesota was started in Faribault on 11 acres of land that was to be an industrial park, with one old building that was demolished. In 1999 a new facility was opened in Mexico and the three plants are all still open and running today. Mercury Minnesota is a contract sheet metal fabrication company that does all contract work for other companies to build what they need for their products. Lots of automation today, where 60 years ago everything was done by hand. Currently there is 53 employees in the facility in Faribault, and they run on one shift. Monday - Thursday 5 am to 2:30 and Friday's 5 am to 9 am.
      Thank you for coming to share with us Cory, your dedication to Mercury Minnesota is evident in your speaking about the company. We welcome you anytime you can join us!
