Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) & Our 401(k)/Profit Sharing

We are very proud to offer 401(k)/profit sharing and a stock ownership plan. We feel that being “Employee Owned” has contributed much to our success. After all, when the Associates that are serving our customers everyday have a vested interest in company profits, they are more aware of all the “little things” that drive customer satisfaction.

Employee Stock Ownership

A portion of our profits each year is put aside to fund our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) which provides shares of NFI stock to eligible associates. One key feature of the ESOP Plan is that the plan is 100% company funded.

Profit Sharing

Eligible Associates also participate in a Profit Sharing Plan which is also funded 100% by NFI. This contribution will vary, depending on how profitable NFI is.

401(k)

Associates may also participate in a 401(k) Profit Sharing by contributing pre-tax monies through payroll deductions. To motivate you to save more, NFI will match 25% of what you contribute to the plan up to the first 6% of your wages. The 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan is self-directed by each Associate who chooses between 10 funds in which to invest, or a Target Date Fund that’s specifically designed with your retirement date in mind.

To Qualify

To qualify for ESOP and 401(k) Profit Sharing, you must be 21 years old, have completed 12 continuous months of employment and have worked a minimum of 1000 hours in the plan year.
