TX: Igloo to Hire Up to 500 for Manufacturing Facility in Katy

29 May, 2020

Igloo announced it is looking to fill up to 500 temporary manufacturing positions in its Katy, TX-based plant due to growing demand for the company's products. The company said that as many businesses are continuing to feel adverse effects of COVID-19, Igloo products are in high demand as consumers need to keep their drinks cold and food fresh on “staycations” and backyard adventures, close-to-home family day trips, and small gatherings.
Igloo’s CEO and President, Dave Allen stated, “We are extremely proud of our team’s response to the pandemic.  We reacted quickly to ensure the safety of our staff, kept our workforce employed when sales slowed, and have also been able to rally our community to donate $203,794 to support those in need during this time. Now changing consumer actions have caused a spike in demand for our product and we are seeking to fill hundreds of new American manufacturing jobs.”
At its facility in Katy, TX, Igloo has implemented strict policies to keep workers safe.  Every employee’s temperature is taken prior to entering, social distancing protocols are in place, trained medical professionals are on-site, and employees with symptoms or a positive test for COVID-19 are given paid sick leave.
In order to maintain social distancing during the hiring process, Igloo will host a “Virtual Job Fair” on Thursday, June 4 at 9 a.m. CDT.
