APEX is Named to The News Journal’s Top Workplaces of 2020 List

Wilmington, Delaware, August 23, 2020 – APEX Mechanical & Fabrication (APEX), the preferred supplier of mechanical services and shop fabrication in the region, today announced that is has been named a Top Workplace in Delaware by The News Journal for the second consecutive year.


Each year, The News Journal partners with Energage to assess the health and well-being of companies. The results are based solely on surveys completed by employees, making it an honest and transparent reflection of a company’s workplace culture. The information gathered is intended to help companies set new goals, reveal problems that need to be addressed, or highlight company achievements.


APEX prides itself on a workplace culture where employees can work, live, and thrive. In an industry with incredible demand for skilled tradespeople, it is important for APEX and similar companies to create a culture conducive to recruiting and retaining top talent. APEX supports the success of its team members through professional development, training programs, community involvement, competitive benefits, and paid vacation and holiday time. In today’s uncertain times, especially, APEX’s diversified business model provides job stability and security by hiring full-time employees, instead of per-project workers.


“We’re so pleased to receive this award for the second year in a row,” said Patrick J. Oakes, President & CEO of APEX. “APEX has always seen opportunity in growing our business from the inside-out, by nurturing and investing in our employees’ continued growth and success. It’s rewarding to know that our team recognizes this and feels satisfied and engaged as a result. Thank you to our employees, Energage, and The News Journal.”
