Rhein Chemie Corporation named a Top Workplace in Ohio

Company recognized by the Cleveland Plain Dealer

Rhein Chemie Corporation has recently been honored by a local Ohio newspaper as one of the best workplaces in northeastern Ohio.  The company was named to the “Top Workplaces 2012” list published in Cleveland’s number one newspaper, The Plain Dealer.

The Plain Dealer’s “Top Workplaces” list has been published for three years now, and Rhein Chemie made the list in 2011 as well as 2012.  This list is determined in cooperation with the research firm Workplace Dynamics, LLC, which surveys employees of participating companies to determine the region’s top workplaces.  Of the 237 participating companies, 100 were selected to the “Top Workplaces” list for 2012.

“Rhein Chemie practices a commitment to our customers, our product, and most importantly to our employees,” Rhein Chemie Corporation President Boudewijn van Lent said.  “Without the employees who make the company the respectable and thriving corporation that it is, Rhein Chemie would not be what it is today.”

This list serves not only to pay tribute to those companies who are doing well by their employees, but also to recognize the various things that have been going right lately in the economy of Cleveland.  Many of the companies and corporations named on this list have been experiencing growth and record-breaking sales in the past couple of years.  This list not only brings a sense of accomplishment to those who are listed on it, but also revitalizes Cleveland in the mind of its citizens.

With 800,000 daily readers, being published in The Plain Dealer lets all of northeastern Ohio know that Rhein Chemie is a sought-after and reputable workplace for its 100 employees.  Having an award-winning newspaper publish a list of successful companies shows local citizens where the best places to work and to take their business are—and they’re located right in their own backyards.
