MMS isn’t a company built strictly on policies and rules, we have them and understand the importance, but we are also built on relationships. We understand people and believe that all people should be treated equally and fairly
MMS spends a great deal of time working safety. We know that having safe work practices are our first line of defense against safety risk. Safety is a team effort and MMS depends on the entire team to be part of our safety team. It’s our beliefs that create our safety culture.
MMS advertises internally all jobs available throughout all regions where we have fulltime work available. This is the case regardless of the position.
MMS can’t meet all needs of people related to special needs due to schedules, but we work together as a team and make efforts to provide relief where possible. We have a variety of shifts available at our many different customer sites that allow some flexibility. That flexibility can help people on a short- or long-term basis by working with team members and site leadership.
MMS pays for skills. We pay top money for high skill/experience and we reward those who take advantage of our internal training and those who seek external education. MMS is a long-term thinking company and employee retention is high on our list of priorities
An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a qualified retirement plan that makes the employees of MMS owners of stock in the company. ESOPs have unique features when compared to other retirement plans. First, an ESOP is required by law to invest primarily in the securities of the sponsoring employer.
MMS has set up an ESOP trust to which it makes annual contributions. In the case of
MMS, these contributions have been in the form of a 3% of pay fully vested contribution
known as a Safe Harbor Non-Elective Contribution. These contributions are allocated to individual employee accounts within the trust. The contributions may be made in Employer Stock, cash, or a combination thereof and are invested on your behalf by MMS.
Employees receive the vested portion of their accounts at; termination, disability,
death, or retirement. These distributions are made in cash and may be made in a lump
sum or in installments over a period of years depending on the total value of the
balance held on your behalf.
The MMS ESOP may distribute the value of your Employer Stock in “installment
distribution(s),” provided that it makes the payments in substantially equal amounts,
and over a period to start within one year for a separation from service and continuing on for a period of 5 years, unless a longer period of time is requested.
MMS must provide “adequate security” and adjust the value with gain and loss to the ESOP participant on the unpaid balance of an installment distribution. Benefits, when paid, are eligible for direct transfer to another qualified retirement plan or IRA, similar to your benefit options under the 401(k) plan.
As with all tax-qualified employee benefit plans, contributions to the MMS ESOP is tax deductible to the sponsoring corporation up to certain limits. Similar to a 401(k) plan taxes are also deferred for the employee until they receive the vested portion of their accounts as explained above.
MMS hosts an on-line training program that covers a wide variety of maintenance related topics as detailed in the Course Catalog. Subjects in this catalog range from the basic, such as Hand Tools and Precision Measuring Tools, to the more complex areas of Planning and Scheduling or Computer and PLC Programming. New topics are also added on a regular basis to meet the growing need for machine repair technicians.
