“Like most other companies, we were cautious during the recession. We’re proud that we did not have to lay anybody off, but we did put a hiring freeze in place for most of 2009 and 2010,” said Jack Nehlig, president of Phoenix Contact USA. “Thanks to the hard work and talent of our employees, we came through the recession stronger than ever and had record sales growth in 2010. Now we want to keep the momentum going by adding to our team. I’m looking forward to connecting with some of the best and brightest workers in central Pennsylvania at our career fair.”
