Mountz Inc., a specialist in providing torque and fastening solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been selected, for the second consecutive year, as one of The Bay Area News Group’s Top Workplaces. The Top Workplaces program was established to recognize companies that have a great workplace.
“Our highly motivated, team oriented employees is the reason we were selected for this prestigious award honoring Silicon Valley’s top workplaces,” said Brad Mountz, President & CEO. “Silicon Valley companies are some of the most creative and engaged employers in the world. To be part of the Top 100 for two years reinforces our belief that people are the company.”
The Bay Area News Group ranked Mountz, Inc. as one of the top small businesses to work for in the Bay Area on its 2015 list. The list of Bay Area Top Workplaces were published in Bay Area News Group publications-including the San Jose Mercury News, the Santa Cruz Sentinel, the Oakland Tribune, and the Contra Costa Times-on Sunday, June 28, and is available online.
The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The survey, conducted by WorkPlaceDynamics, was completed by Mountz employees. WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement, conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 45 major publishing partners across the United States. Over the past year, more than 6,000 organizations and 1 in every 88 employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees. Through its workplace improvement offerings, WorkplaceDynamics provides solutions, training and tools to help clients improve their workplace.
This year marks the 50th anniversary for Mountz Inc. in business. Mountz is truly honored to have reached such a major milestone with the help from all of our customers as well as current and former employees. Don Mountz, a native Californian and entrepreneur formed Mountz, Inc. in 1965 from the bedroom of his Cupertino home, before there was silicon in Silicon Valley.
To be in business 50 years is no small feat. A study in Bloomberg Business Week magazine claims that one – third of all Fortune 500 companies active in 1970 had vanished by 1983. In the fast-paced world of Silicon Valley, flush with IPO’s angel investing, mergers and acquisitions, corporate existence is measured on an entirely different scale than longevity. The average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 index of leading US companies has decreased by more than 50 years in the last century, from 67 years in the 1920s to just 15 years today, according to Professor Richard Foster from Yale University.
Mountz, Inc. features two other product divisions – Mr. Metric® and MountzPro®. Mr. Metric is the leading metric fastener specialist in North America. Well regarded as experts in metric, Mr. Metric is known for hard to find metric items at competitive prices. MountzPro offers tools for the professional market with the goal to make fastening easy for the professional and weekend mechanic or other service technicians.
Since 1965, Mountz has proven its in-depth knowledge of torque solutions by consistently developing, producing, marketing and servicing highly sophisticated, cutting-edge tools. Mountz Inc., known to industry as the nation’s premier torque tool supplier, is an ISO 9001 registered and ISO 17025 accredited company. Mountz tools comply with ISO6789:2003 and are constructed from high quality materials, engineered for superior reliability and safety and backed by an industry leading warranty. Torque impacts our daily lives. Making a safer world through accuracy and precision is the core purpose of Mountz, Inc.
Using a quality torque tool and fastener makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product’s quality, safety and reliability isn’t compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn’t properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.
