Daily Driving Perspectives
Being a commercial driver requires attention and knowing where you are with your vehicle and load at all times. Working with the customers has afforded Henry the opportunity to meet a lot of people and network throughout his years delivering loads for Delta Steel. Henry is responsible for his rig and load and both need to be inspected for safety before departing the warehouse.
“It’s challenging and you always have to be alert.”
Henry has said many times than he is very happy working for Delta Steel and plans to retire from here when the time is right.
The leadership and compensation is what has kept him around and we appreciate his loyalty. Without hard-working people like Henry, Delta Steel would find it hard to be as competitive in the marketplace as we are. Throughout his tenure with Delta Steel, he noted the growth and interdepartmental cooperation has matured very nicely. “We are a lot busier now than before!”
His mentality is to get the job done safely and always service the customer’s needs. When asked, “what are your aspirations and goals in the future with Infra-Metals?”, Henry responds, “To make the company better in any way I can and keep growing.”
“At the end of the day get the job done!”
