For the fifth time in seven years Midwest Fire Equipment & Repair Company (Midwest Fire) was named one of fifty winners in Prairie Business Magazine’s (Prairie Business) “50 Best Places to Work 2021” contest. This is the third time the company has received the award in back-to-back years.
“Given the manufacturing reputation in Minnesota, it’s a huge honor to be featured among so many other successful businesses in our state, and even more so to be chosen a fifth time,” said Midwest Fire’s CEO Sarah Atchison. “I attribute our success entirely to our team. At Midwest Fire everything from building the apparatus to delivery of the apparatus is a team effort, and we could not be successful without them.”
Prairie Business Magazine holds this competition each year to reward and highlight the region’s best places to work, based solely on employee appeal and nomination. Midwest Fire also received this recognition in 2015, 2016, 2019, and 2020. The award recognizes employee-nominated companies for exceptional benefits, work culture, general employee happiness and various other pull-factors that retain employees. The winners will be featured in the September issue of the publication.
Midwest Fire is a manufacturer and direct seller of custom fire apparatus and offers continued support to customers with maintenance and repairs. Employees work directly with fire departments across the country to customize and build state-of-the-art firefighting apparatus. They were previously nominated for the 2018 and 2016 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards among many other honors in recent years.
