East Hartford, CT– United Steel, a major fabricator and erector of structural steel and miscellaneous metals, has received its fifth consecutive Top Workplace award from The Hartford Courant. The company received the award at a September 20 event to honor all 60 Connecticut companies who received this employee-generated distinction.

“We truly appreciate our team of employees who make our company and our workplace what it is,” said Ken Corneau, president of United Steel. “Each employee comes to work every day with a great attitude, a willingness to work as part of our team, and a desire to build the best steel framing and miscellaneous metals products. This award is as much a reflection on them as it is on us and we value that greatly.”

To identify the best workplaces in the state, The Courant partnered with the research firm Energage to confidentially survey employees who nominated their employers. Questions focused on quality of benefits, amenities, time off, workplace ethics, communications, and employer’s openness to solicit employee ideas, among other subjects. All nominated companies received their employees’ anonymous input from the survey.

Founded in 1974, United Steel, Inc.,  is the largest fabricator and erector of structural steel and miscellaneous metals in New England. The company’s divisions include United Metal Solutions, that specializes in the processing and fabrication of simple parts, component parts, sub-assemblies and completed OEM products made from aluminum, stainless steel and carbon steel; United Building Solution, that offers design/build and general contracting services for metal structures; and Black Rock Fireproof Columns, a manufacturer of fireproof structural columns.
