Gary Hoadley, warehouseman
I started at Pennsylvania Steel Company in June of 1995 after having worked in the restaurant business for 7-1/2 years. I came to the company with no prior knowledge of steel, or the industry.
I began working in the warehouse pulling orders and loading/unloading trucks as well as learning how to operate the saws. Within 2 years. I became 2nd Shift Supervisor, a position that I held for 5 years. A spot opened up on the day shift for me and shortly thereafter I was made Day Shift Supervisor, which I held for nearly 13 years. During that time, I worked in sales for a short while, where I decided I was best suited for the warehouse. Also, throughout this time, I held a part-time position in the Operations Department.
I am currently an ISO Auditor for the Bensalem branch and have recently starting driving and making deliveries while maintaining my position in the warehouse.
When I started working at PA Steel we were a 1 branch, 4 truck company. I have enjoyed watching Pennsylvania Steel’s expansion throughout the years to become the company that it is today. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for us.
