For as long as most people can remember, downsizing and outsourcing have been a major part of the American business landscape. There’s no doubt that a lot of companies have improved their bottom lines thanks to cheaper overseas workers or smaller shops. But at Uzelac Industries, the idea of outsourcing or ignoring our commitment to our community never even crossed our minds. Uzelac Industries is a combination of two old-line Milwaukee businesses brought together into one modern and innovative company. We might be a dynamic design/build manufacturing company, which utilizes only state-of-the-art machinery and technology, but we have never lost touch with our Rust Belt values. What some might refer to as “old-fashioned values” are simply “values” to us. A commitment to customers, community, and employees never has and will never go out of style. Things like personalized service, American-made capital equipment, and Union employees are all important to making us who we are.
Both of the companies that comprise Uzelac Industries, Industrial MetalFab and Duske Drying Systems, thrive due to this strong belief in a greater sense of awareness beyond just the factory gates. A great example of this is our journeyman sheet metal workers. Unlike our competitors, our proud and highly- skilled sheet metal workers take projects from start to finish. They take the steel off the truck; they fabricate it, and then prepare it for shipping. No outsourcing, no compromises, no corners cut. We can do all of this while maintaining competitive prices, unbelievable customer service, well-known quality, and quick turnaround times.
This blog will not only be an opportunity for us to share all our latest and exciting projects involving our direct-fired rotary dryers and custom metal fabrication, but will also hopefully demonstrate our commitment to Rust Belt values, and how that makes Uzelac Industries a great company, both to work with and work at.
