Culture, Family & Health: What Matters

revised

On Friday, May 8th, we held our 5th Annual Vulcan Health and Safety Fair. A total of 34 vendors came out to promote good health in the employees of Vulcan. Health screenings were available including vision, bone density, simple blood sugar, and blood pressure. Vendors supplied goody bags for all in attendance, while burgers and hot dogs were provided by Gulf Coast Office Products. Fastenal even brought out its’ #17 car as seen on TV driven by Ricky Stenhouse Jr. This year’s theme was, “One Step at a Time Towards Good Health & Safety”. This theme exemplifies not only our strategy, but also our commitment to the health and welfare of each and every employee.

The health fair was mutually beneficial for vendors and employees alike. Vendors have a chance to promote their business through offering health related information, consultation or a platform for correcting misconceptions. Employees have a chance to see a number of different options without having to travel to different locations. What is my blood pressure? Do I need an eye doctor? What insurance options are available? Where is a good dentist? We may not have all the answers but we strive to provide an avenue for finding answers and options to common problems.

With soaring rates of heart disease, obesity, and cancer threatening Americans these days, we know keeping 200+ employees safe is a huge responsibility (See our blog post from March 23rd for status on our journey). Employees are the lifeblood of Vulcan. They keep the wheels of production spinning; but, more importantly, they harness our spirit. The health fair is a unique opportunity to engage the safety, health and welfare community from which we self identify. Additionally, it can be a way to reach out to the underserved. As everyone knows, Vulcan is an Employee Owned Company. Keeping our owners happy and healthy is generally good practice.

A Fresh Face on the Vulcan Sales Front: Jeff Osborne

revised

Jeff Osborne

We are excited to welcome Jeff Osborne, the newest member of the Vulcan Metal Stampings’ (VMS) Sales Team. Jeff’s extensive background, his drive and personality made him the perfect match for what VMS was looking for in a sales representative. Jeff made his start at the age of twenty in Carrollton, Georgia when he opened a metal fabrication company with his dad in their garage. Jeff and his father decided to sell this business after 14 prosperous years and start a new venture which specialized in designing, engineering and fabricating steel security products.

Jeff is married with four sons, and currently resides in Orange Beach. His hobbies include playing golf, working out and boating.

After 20 years of playing an active role in both sales and production, Jeff says the best piece of advice he can offer is to “be honest and do what you say you are going to do.“ He also feels it is extremely important to listen to the customer, believe in what you are selling, and always provide the best possible quality in a timely manner.

That is why he feels Vulcan is such a great fit for him. “I know the metal fab business like the back of my hand and with Vulcan being an employee-owned company, the products that are manufactured here are made with the upmost pride. “
