When Steel Craft Corp. opened its doors for the first time in 1976, the company consisted of two people and a 2,000-square-foot facility. That’s a long way from where the company is 40 years later, with more than 200 employees and a 365,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that continues to grow. President Tom Verbos says the key to the company’s success is rooted in the dedication of its people and their desire to meet customers’ metal fabrication, stamping and coating needs in any way possible.
From its base of operations in Hartford, Wis., Steel Craft specializes in working with customers across a wide range of industries to fabricate components and see them all the way through to painting, assembly, packaging and delivery. According to Verbos, the variety of customers the company serves has been a major reason why Steel Craft has been able to survive numerous ups and downs in the manufacturing sector. “We’ve got a nice diverse mix of clients, and that really allows us to stay successful even in challenging times,” he says.
As the company celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, Steel Craft continues to focus on the things that have made it successful. Verbos says the company is ensuring that the company never loses sight of its goal of continuous improvement and this will allow Steel Craft to continue to play a vital role in its customers’ manufacturing operations.
