We are committed to West Virginia for the long-term, bringing job stability and security to workers employed at our new Ranson, West Virginia facility. In Ranson, at full production we will employ at least 150 people locally with approximately 80 percent of those positions in technician roles supporting the production line and 20 percent in leadership roles. Baseline salaries for these jobs will range from $38,000-$62,000 for technicians, $65,000- $90,000 for mechanics and electricians (skilled maintenance positions), and an average $100,000 per year for leadership and management positions.
In addition to the competitive base salary, all employees receive excellent benefits including health, dental, and vision coverage (of which the company pays up to 80 percent of the premium), as well as disability and life insurance. Employees can elect to receive coverage for their spouse and dependents. We are proud to offer a well-rounded benefits package which includes two-three weeks of paid vacation and a 401K matched up to six percent by ROCKWOOL. In total, the benefits package has a value of about $18,500.
ROCKWOOL provides access to courses, apprenticeships, and a range of in-house and online training programs and resources to support skills development and employee advancement.
