Aerofil Technology Inc. (ATI), Sullivan, an industry leader in Lean aerosol and liquid contract packaging, announced a total pay scale restructure systemwide.

In an effort to attract, develop and retain more talent, Aerofil increased baseline wages in all pay grades and gave existing hourly employees significant increases across the company effective in 2016.

“There can be no greater investment an organization can make than in its employees,” said Pat Bergin, president of ATI.

“We made a commitment to our employees that as we continue to grow and prosper as a business that we want our employees to share in that growth,” he said. “The increases were announced at our year-end plantwide update meeting where profit sharing checks were also distributed to all active employees for surpassing our performance goals for the eighth consecutive calendar quarter in a row.”

The pay scale increases are part of a broader plan to make Aerofil one of the premier places to work in the St. Louis area, officials said.

The company already offers a competitive benefits package, company-match 401(k), profit sharing, fitness club membership reimbursement, tuition assistance and a membership to Sullivan Country Club to all of its employees.

Aerofil recently was awarded a five-year contract in new business worth nearly a quarter of a billion dollars, which will be the catalyst for new capital investment in a new aerosol line as well as external expansion plans and the immediate hiring opportunity for nearly 50 hourly employees.

Applications can be filled out either onsite at the manufacturing facility or at the careers page at www.aerofil.com.
