SJF Honored at Minnesota’s Top 100 Companies Celebration

Earlier this year, SJF Material Handling received notice that it had been named one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” in 2018 by Minnesota Business Magazine. The awards program and dinner honoring this year’s award recipients took place on Thursday, June 28 at the JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America.

Qualifications for the “100 Best” Award

To be awarded this honor, the following excerpt from Minnesota Business Magazine states:

Minnesota is known for being a great place to live and work, with top-notch companies in many industries headquartered here. Each year, these companies submit nominations for the 100 Best Companies to Work For Awards by Minnesota Business magazine. This award recognizes Minnesota’s top companies and, time after time, helps the winners attract key employees who make all the difference.

The “100 Best” were determined by the resulting scores of an anonymous online questionnaire filled out by the employees of each participating company — to determine which companies in Minnesota excel in the areas of work environment, employee benefits, and overall employee happiness, making them the 100 Best Companies to Work For.

This is the 4th time SJF has been named to this prestigious list and we are very proud of the accomplishment!

SJF in Winsted Gives Employees Room to Grow

What’s to like about working at SJF Material Handling in Winsted?

“Everything,” according to Marty Zitzloff, who has been with the company the past 24 years.

In both 2013 and 2014, Minnesota Business Magazine named SJF as one of the state’s 100 best companies to work for, based on an in-depth employee satisfaction survey. “We sort of break all the traditional rules of how business is run,” said president/sales manager Stafford Sterner, whose father, Gerald Sterner started the material handling company in 1979.

Employees are often promoted from within, and have the freedom to transition to different departments.

Zitzloff, for example, originally started at SJF as a welder.

“It was a lot of on-the-job training, and a few outside classes,” he recalled, adding that he later became the shop and yard supervisor.

Six years ago, Zitzloff decided to get into sales. He didn’t have any formal sales experience, but was familiar with the products SJF offers.

“Marty has had a lot of success here,” Stafford said. “We find opportunities for anyone who wants to apply themselves.”
