Meredith, here, your newest employee at US Metal Crafters. But my story starts a bit earlier than that, growing up in Suburbia I had never stepped in or knowingly driven by a manufacturing plant. My hometown was full of golf courses and equestrian centers.

A few days after being hired, I had my very first tour of a manufacturing facility, and to say I was blown away is an understatement. The variety of products being created, and their purpose was impressive.

I was quickly learning just how much of a daily presence manufacturing had in my life regardless of growing up in a Suburban area. From my morning iced latte to every car ride or door handle I touched metal crafting was influencing the way I lived my life, and it’s influencing yours too.
