Trimm is very much an employee conscious company. Below are some of the highlights…
- Trimm provides a family like atmosphere. The owner and managers take a deep interest not only in the employees, but their families as well.
- The employees are provided with an exceptional health care plan in which the company shares a major cost of this plan for everyone. This takes a major burden off each employee with the high cost of health insurance in today’s world.
- Human Resources offers activities to not only recognize employees but also to help our surrounding communities. This helps inspire our employees to work together as a team.
- Even though we are a customer-oriented business, Trimm understands that the value of their employees is just as is important.

Trimm’s signature color is ORANGE, but now we are turning GREEN! We are moving near the end of the year and our new building is going GREEN with improvements! This new location is our start to incorporate some of the global Green Initiatives into our footprint. Our new roof will be R-20 with added insulation and TPO-cool reflective coating. Down the road, we hope to incorporate solar power.

Customer Care Team
With COVID 19 still in force, there has been a lot of focus on buying local in order to support small businesses and the local and United States economies in general. At Trimm, our practice has been to purchase materials used in our Power Distribution Panels from local sources, and to design, build and market our products here in Butner, North Carolina.
When we say our products are Made in the USA, we mean it. All Trimm products are designed and manufactured in North Carolina. We source our copper components from a small manufacturer in Tennessee, our sheet metal and nylon fixtures from the greater Raleigh, NC area, and our paint and powder coat is sourced from a provider in Raleigh as well. Assembly is carried out in the Trimm facility in Butner. When you purchase a Trimm product, you can be sure that you are supporting small businesses right here in the USA. Trimm utilizes small businesses where possible, such as local engineering resources, and engages local professional services such as legal and payroll services. Wages earned by Trimm employees support local businesses while providing tax revenue and benefit to municipal, state, and federal agencies.
Additionally, by manufacturing locally, Trimm avoids disruptions associated with a foreign workforce, border closings, customs problems, and time that parts spend in transit between countries and facilities. This translates into greater control of production timelines, and ultimately affords better lead...

Trimm is hiring. We are looking for an Inside Sales Representative. These are exciting times at Trimm even as we work through the Covid 19 crisis. Our products are critical to the communications industry and especially now as companies scramble to expand the bandwidth across the country with so many folks working from home. Our manufacturing lines are up and running but still taking all of the CDC recommendations into our processes. Trimm is continuing to expand its product line with more new releases coming this year. Follow the link to see what this job is all about.
Trimm wants to keep you informed of our efforts during the COVID-19 outbreak. Our decision to break out the manufacturing and office personnel into 2 groups is working. Production is hard at work maintaining the production schedule. Our suppliers are delivering material with limited interruptions. This is a tremendous advantage to having most of our suppliers here in the USA and local suppliers here in North Carolina. Many have been supporting Trimm for years. Our Manufacturing manager commented that "Manufacturing support and/or communication this week from virtual and onsite teams was superb. Thank you for all your efforts." We will contine to support our customers to the best of our abilities as we have seen some emergency orders come over to suppor the additional bandwidth needed across the country. Please take time to thank those who are on the front line fighting this outbreak. Especially those doctors and nurses putting theselves in harm's way each day to take care of this in need.
Trimm continues to operate in these difficult times. We are taking as many precautions as possible. We have split our manufacturing and office personnel into two teams spread out over 6 production days with multiple cleanings each day. Those that can work from home will do so. Those at work separate themselves by using guidelines provided for social distancing. With the stress on the current networks to provide the speed and bandwidth required across the nation, our dedicated teams continue to push out orders and develop new products needed for those upgrades. Our new 30/30 GMT panel will help solve some of those issues. With 60 total positions in a 2RU panel, it will eliminate the need for multiple panels while saving that valuable rack space. View the new panel on our website. Search on the 707F101001 and see how it can help. Stay safe.
