Calumet in the Keweenaw Report – Calumet Electronics is Hiring

Calumet Team

Keweenaw Report reached out to Calumet Electronics’ Todd Brassard to discuss the company’s headquarters expansion and what that will mean for hiring in the area.


KR: How long have the expansion plans been in the works?

Todd Brassard: Since 2000 the electronics industry in the United States has been shrinking manufacturing, moving it offshore to Asia. To continue operating as a viable manufacturer between 2000 and 2018, Calumet Electronics remained financially careful and conservative, continually reinvested in the company, and executed a meaningful strategy to transition from commodity-based to next-gen technologies and product types.

We’ve had plans for expansion for a decade, but we were waiting for the right time to execute the expansion activities that are currently underway. A time when the market was strong and our company highly competitive.
