Activar named MOHR’s Outstanding Employer of the Year

Nov 6, 2020


Rise congratulates  Activar in Bloomington which has won this year’s Outstanding Employer of the Year from MOHR (Minnesota Association of Habilitation and Rehabilitation).

Activar is an American manufacturing and distribution company engaging in construction, plastic, technical, and industrial products and services.

Ten workers from Rise enjoy the fast-pace work environment at Activar. Like a well-oiled machine, they work together or in other parts of the large plant alongside Active employees to produce metal wall cabinets found in businesses around the world.

“The workers from Rise bring such positivity to our work place,” said John Baker, Activar’s director of Supply Chain and Manufacturing. “They work hard and we are happy to have them here.”

Of the 18 companies nominated statewide, Activar stood out to the MOHR selection committee because of the interesting and challenging jobs that Rise workers do and the integral part they play in Activar’s overall production.

Rise is proud of our ongoing, mutually beneficial ‘partnership that works!’ with Activar and extend our appreciation to everyone at Activar. Congratulations!
