North Haven, CT (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
Founded in 1924 by Frederick Christian Ulbrich Sr., Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, Inc. was a small metal scrap processing center in Wallingford, Connecticut.
Ulbrich is now marking its 90th anniversary this year with 700 employees and 12 locations around the world, including its headquarters in North Haven, CT.
Today, the Company remains family-owned, led by the founder, Fred Sr.’s son, Fred Jr., Chairman of the Board, and grandson, Chris, Chief Executive Officer.
Ulbrich serves stainless steel and special metal markets with strip, flat wire, shaped wire, foil and ultra-lite foil®, and sheet product forms. It has evolved into a worldwide, high quality precision metals manufacturing and distribution network.
“We have achieved this milestone as a result of the commitment, loyalty, knowledge and hard work of each employee through the years,” said Chris Ulbrich, CEO.
“We also extend sincere appreciation to all customers who have supported Ulbrich with orders and feedback. Our dedicated customer base has always been key to the Company’s success.”
When Fred Sr. founded Ulbrich in 1924, he could not have known that the Company would endure through the Great Depression, diversify during two world wars, thrive during lunar exploration, and develop into an international business.
Ulbrich supplies precision products at the international level for numerous critical applications in the medical, power generation, energy, automotive, aircraft, aerospace, petro chemical, oil and gas, industrial and consumer markets.
To celebrate its 90th year anniversary, Ulbrich is planning a series of commemorative events at all of its locations.
