Cass’s 1st Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

We had a blast teaming up to support the North-Suburban Emergency Assistance Response (NEAR) organization in Brooklyn Center, MN with our 1st annual food drive.

Cass Precision Machining Celebrates Another Great Year

Cass Precision Machining Celebrates Another Great Year With Its Hard-Working Team

For many of us, a large portion of our days are spent at work; in fact, the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime. So, it’s probably safe to say your job can make a huge impact on your quality of life. What’s more, without our employees, we don’t have a business. They are the heart and soul of everything we do. Showing our appreciation helps remind our team that they are valued, and it affirms the commitment we have to the team.

Cass Precision Machining Celebrates Another Great Year

At Cass, we feel it is vital to acknowledge and thank our great employees for their contributions. It is our philosophy that when you show your employees that you see and appreciate their efforts — and take the time to demonstrate the impact they’re having on the business — those employees feel good about what they do, and they take those feelings home with them. We feel it is important to invest the time to celebrate the legacy of the hard-working people at Cass who make us who we are.

To celebrate this year, Cass had a full “backyard” barbeque, with pulled chicken and pulled pork sandwiches with all the trimmings catered in. The event was hosted outside on the lawn in front of Building 1, which is the original/1st building that Cass moved into in 1965 when Lester Cass brought the business to Crystal from Minneapolis.

Brooklyn Center High School ECA

Cass Retools “Dream It. Do It. Minnesota Tours of Manufacturing” for Local High School Students

It was a real pleasure to welcome students back to Cass Precision Machining on Thursday, October 4th.  Last year’s participation in Minnesota’s Dream it. Do it. Minnesota Tour of Manufacturing Day was so successful that we decided to reach out, in coordination with our sister company, Ajax Metal Forming Solutions, to a few of our local high schools to offer a field trip. The result was Cass hosting over 70 10th through 12th-grade students and six faculty members from Brooklyn Center and Patrick Henry high schools.
