Hypertherm, which makes industrial cutting systems and software, has made number 30 on the Forbes list of the 500 Best Midsize Employers and the number two spot among engineering and manufacturing companies.

‘We are honored by our inclusion on this list of America’s Best Employers for 2018,’ said Evan Smith, president and CEO. ‘It’s a testament to the culture created upon our founding 50 years ago and the foresight shown by founder Dick Couch and his wife and business partner Barbara Couch in supporting our transition to a 100% employee owned company.’
