A Day in the Life of an Alsum Farms & Produce Industrial Maintenance Technician
As a Maintenance Technician, you arrive each day ready to ensure that all our operations can perform. We focus on preventative and proactive maintenance. Of course, there are occasional emergency fixes required. When work orders are submitted, we assign the work order to the appropriate maintenance technician. Next, the maintenance technician arrives at the job site and discusses the concern with the production personnel that initiated the work order. The Maintenance Technician is responsible for collecting information to diagnose the issue and decide if preventive maintenance or corrective maintenance is required. Once production operates the equipment to standard, the maintenance technician closes out the work order. They are responsible for documenting the proper failure codes, failure causes, time taken to complete the job, and any other information required in the synopsis.

Why the Maintenance Technician position is important to Alsum Companies: Poorly maintained resources can completely stop production & operations. We need people like you to help maintain the facilities so we can provide field to fork potatoes to the dinner tables of Americans.

The Alsum Story
The story began nearly five decades ago in a 600 square foot potato shed, with one man, Glen Alsum, one vision, and a work ethic framed by dedication and service. Today, there are 350,000 square feet of sheds and production space, almost 325 full-time and seasonal employees, and 200,000,000 pounds of potatoes produced annually and that doesn't include onions, pumpkins and other fresh produce that are distributed to grocery stores and warehouse retailers across the country.

We pack under the Alsum Farms & Produce brand plus many national brands and customer labels. Alsum offers a wide variety of packaging options from 12 ounces up to 50-pound packs; and in poly, mesh, paper or cartons all from one shed.

And that work ethic? It's still framed by dedication, a commitment to service, and a belief in providing a field-to-fork, vertically integrated business approach that incorporates growing and harvesting, production, packaging, and distribution, all under the umbrella of unrelenting quality.

As time ticks by, the mission, vision and values haven't changed, although the generations of leadership have. Since 1981, Larry Alsum has been at the helm of Alsum Farms & Produce, with his daughters, Wendy Alsum-Dykstra and Heidi Alsum-Randall, poised to take over when Larry, who's been in agriculture his entire life, retires.

Corporate Responsibility
We do business by:
Conserving and restoring the Wisconsin acreage we are privileged to farm and protecting the surrounding wildlife and ecosystems
Partnering with growers and suppliers committed to sustainability
Providing consumers with safe, fresh, quality Wisconsin potatoes, onions, fruits and vegetables
Ensuring our employees have a safe business environment to work in, one that rewards them for their commitment and encourages them to advance
Being a company that pays it forward - helping others in our community and inspiring others to do the same

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and a Drug Free Workplace
