Graco Inc. Named a Best Workplace in Manufacturing and Production by Fortune Magazine

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 18, 2019-- Graco Inc.(NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, has been named one of the 2019 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing and Production, according to Fortune Magazine. Graco has been recognized on this list each of the three times it has participated.

“I’m honored to work with such an engaged team of employees worldwide at Graco. Each employee is individually committed to building and maintaining a positive workplace,” said Patrick J. McHale, Graco’s President and CEO. “This is why we're being recognized – and each one of our employees should be proud of the culture they’ve built here at Graco.”

Graco ranked no. 7 on the internationally-recognized list. To determine the 2019 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production, Great Place to Work® analyzed anonymous survey feedback representing over 150,000 employees working in the Manufacturing & Production industry in the United States. Employees responded to more than 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do.

“There is a great deal of autonomy for all employees from the factory floor to upper management. Graco's culture thrives on being metric oriented and accountable at every level, which allows that freedom to direct your own work and make individual and collective contributions,” said one Graco employee in the anonymous survey. “Every employee at Graco has the ability and responsibility to continually improve and make each new day better than the last.”
