Kimray also said it was increasing its shift differential, the extra amount paid to second- and third-shift employees, to 15 percent, up from 10 percent.
“I’m excited that Kimray is taking this step,” said Shad Glass, Kimray’s vice president of human resources and organizational development. “Now we can add a competitive base wage and an industry-leading shift differential to our already impressive benefits package for our employees.”
New campus planned
Kimray, which was founded in 1948, makes pumps, valves, controls and other oil-field equipment. The company recently announced plans for a new 390,000 square-foot campus at the northwest corner of Eastern Avenue and Britton Road.
