When you drive up to Klein Steel at 105 Vanguard Parkway in Rochester, NY, the first thing to greet you is our stunningly impressive, bright, "safety yellow," eight-story steel structure, Threshold, designed and installed by world renowned metal sculptor Albert Paley. And, if you look closely, you will see wild animals and jungle foliage nested throughout. Threshold was fabricated with cutout pieces from a steel archway entitled Animals Always that Mr. Paley constructed for the St. Louis Zoo in 2006—a joint project for which Klein Steel provided the steel and plasma cutting. Threshold is also a tribute to the power and value of long-term relationships with Klein Steel and its customers.
"Klein Steel was our first major outsourcing partner and we hold them up as the standard. We have achieved considerable cost reductions and efficiencies in the three years we have been partnered together. Look no further for the premier steel service center that understands quality and the value of serving the customer".
VP, Global Supply Chain Management | Gear Manufacturer
"Our relationship with Klein Steel has been a tremendous opportunity for growth and change. During our Lean implementation, We determined which processes were considered core competencies. It was decided that warehousing and processing steel were specialties of a local company, Klein Steel. The open and transparent relationship has built trust and cooperation between the employees. Together, we've never experienced this level of supplier partnership where we are focused on deliberately driving costs out of the supply chain. This experience will have a dramatic impact on our employees, our stockholders and our other suppliers."
