During the Indiana primary election last May, President Obama made a special visit to Munster Steel. Why? Can you find a better voice for infrastructure expertise than a structural fabricator? Especially a structural fabricator who has an intimate knowledge of both buildings and bridges?
Mr. Obama learned first hand about the structural steel fabrication process: the functions of fitters and detailers, and what exactly separates a “beam” from a “column”.
In a closed meeting with Ms Jeanne Robbins, President of Munster Steel, the topic included needs/requirements of structural fabrication and the challenges that our industry faces. Ms Robbins discussed the importance of infrastructure work, and its’ positive effect on our economy.
“It was a tremendous honor having Mr. Obama visit Munster Steel and address our employees, it is a highlight for the history of our company”, added Jeanne.
