MC Ironworks (MCIW), a Lehigh Valley structural steel fabricator, welcomed nearly 50 people to its SteelDay tour of MCIW’s 90,000 square feet facility. John Cancelliere, CEO and President, was excited to see that 29 of those in attendance were engineering students.
Cancelliere has made it one of his missions to encourage engineering students to consider careers in the steel industry. “We have a shortage of structural engineers,” says Cancelliere, “SteelDay gives us a fantastic opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to experience the work, people and technology behind today’s steel industry firsthand.” While the majority of students came from nearby Lehigh University, students also travelled from New York’s Manhattan University and the University of Buffalo. Adds Cancelliere, “The event allows us to showcase our facility to clients and prospects. Our staff really enjoys preparing for the event as well. They are excited to share the work we do.”
