Work Crocs: Montgomery and the Beginning of the New American Workplace is the story of the birth of a company whose founder, Tom Montgomery, had a vision that he would transform the life of millions of people through his company’s work.
As Montgomery’s vision became a reality, he took the company public in 1962, and his legacy continues to impact today.
The film is the first documentary to examine the origins and legacy of the company, which is best known for producing the classic American Pie, and for pioneering the work ethic of those at its helm.
Watch the trailer below.
The Film Montgomery Work Croc: Monterey and the Birth of Happy Labor was shot on location in the Monterey Bay, California, area, where Montgomery worked for a number of years.
The production features a number, including footage from Montgomery working on a project for the company’s then-new chief executive, Harry T. Smith.
Montgomery was the first man to use a water-powered generator in a home, but he also pioneered the use of the power of steam to produce electricity.
Monterey’s first plant opened in 1958 and Monterey has since grown into one of the world’s largest manufacturers of goods and services, with an annual output of nearly $2 trillion.
It is home to more than 500,000 employees, who produce about a quarter of all the products sold in the US.
Monty’s grandson, Bill Montgomery, who plays a local water worker, explains the company that he and his grandfather created.
