News From Parker Steel
6th of July 2021
|Nothing Can Stop Us|
|Limited staffing, longer than average lead times, Covid restrictions, masks wearing, social distancing, working from home, quarantining, and so much more have made the past 13 months very difficult for many companies. We are no exception, but we have one great advantage, our staff. Our employees at Parker Steel have shown us their loyalty and commitment to you, our customer, during these unpredictable times. They have all pulled together to get jobs done, filling in for others when needed, taking on roles we were not used to, and picking up the slack whenever needed to get orders out the door to our customers on time. Despite the hurdles faced by the Pandemic and the shortage of staff, we were still able to maintain over 99% on-time delivery performance rate. We are very proud of our team. We also want to thank our employees for their continued commitment to safety and health, both personally and professionally, to keep us all as safe as possible.|
After 14.5 years, it’s time to say goodbye to our outstanding Purchasing Manager, Bob Rumschlag.
