The heart of our success at Camcraft is our staff— more than 300 highly skilled and motivated team members in two Chicago-area facilities. By providing extensive continuous improvement and advanced education classes, our people have the tools to excel in their professional and personal lives. Once our customers experience this, they quickly become our biggest advocates.
As a way of empowering and engaging all of our employees, Camcraft launched our E2B2 initiative in 2012: Everybody, Everyday (getting) Better and Better.

This type of individual and team responsibility creates a safer environment, and a happier, more engaged workforce, allowing Camcraft to be more productive and able to deliver higher levels of quality on-time, every day.
Our culture has helped to create a heightened sense of community and is just one of the reasons we received the notable Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in 2017 and IndustryWeek’s Best Plants Award in 2015.
