Silfex to host in-person job fair in August

High-tech manufacturing firm looking to hire for its facilities in Eaton and Springfield through event.

Silfex will be hosting an in-person job fair in August as it continues to fill positions at its facilities in Eaton and Springfield.

The high-tech manufacturing firm will be hosting the event at its facility in Eaton, 950 S. Franklin St., on Aug. 14. Those that attend will be able to also apply for jobs available in Springfield.

It will last from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and those attending will be able to meet recruiters, learn about open positions as well as how to apply. Silfex is also offering a $2,000 sign-on bonus to applicants that are hired and start their new positions before Aug. 30.

Silfex creates precision components used to make and operate semiconductor tools. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lam Research, based in California, and has the world’s largest custom silicon growing operation across both of its locations in Ohio.

Silfex will be returning back to in-person job events after it began hosting drive-thru job fairs last year.

The drive-thru job fairs served as a socially distanced way to meet and attract candidates. The idea came about as the company wanted to comply with safety measures amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The company brought back those type of hiring events this year as it looked to hire more than 100 people at its facilities in Eaton and Springfield.

The in-person job fair on Aug. 14 will be open for those looking for work at either one of Silfex’s Ohio facilities. The company is looking to hire CNC machinist, maintenance technicians as well as filling other manufacturing roles.

Silfex employs more than 1,000 people at its plants in Springfield and Eaton.

As of late last year there were about 200 people working in Springfield, with plans to double the amount of people at the facility by 2022.
