Floyd Young

Millwright, Stamping/Press

From an early age, Floyd loved working with machines. Growing up on a farm, he was always working with different equipment, and it was a natural fit for him to venture into trades such as metal fabrication, welding, and steel fabrication while in high school. Today, Floyd is a Millwright working on robots that are helping build the cars of our future.

Floyd, an invaluable member of our team for 15 years, shares his experiences and insight into what a career at TMMC can look like.

Why did you join TMMC?

One of the primary reasons I was drawn to TMMC was the company’s reputation for producing reliable and high-quality vehicles. I also found the opportunity to work on cutting-edge equipment and robots intriguing and exciting.

What aspect of your role do you appreciate the most?

With constantly evolving technology and equipment, there is never a dull moment. I appreciate the opportunity to continually learn and grow when breakdowns and troubleshooting situations arise.

At TMMC, you have the opportunity to think outside of the box. If you’re up for a challenging board game, like an escape room, that’s kind of what it’s like at TMMC on a daily basis.

What motivates you in your job?

Witnessing the career progression of former floor workers who are now Team Leaders, Group Leaders, team leaders, or a Manager inspires me. Their stories push me to learn and develop, knowing I can be a role model to new Team Members someday.

I’m also motivated by the thrill of the challenge. You don’t normally have a job that will present new challenges each day.

What would you say to someone considering an Electrician/Millwright career at TMMC?

TMMC provides extensive training and access to TMs from various backgrounds. This allows you to specialize in specific areas or broaden your skill set by working with robots, welding, and more. The company encourages your development, and there is always room for advancement.

Why do you stay at TMMC?

There is a true sense of value and appreciation here. Management takes the time to thank and acknowledge team members for their contributions. Knowing that my efforts are appreciated and noticed gives me a sense of pride and accomplishment.

We also have comradery across the team. We understand each other’s strengths and everyone is willing and eager to share their knowledge; it’s all about getting the job done.
