Metalfab has recently become a dealer for Shield Solutions line of cleaning supplies.  We had decided to test the Shield Solutions Aluminum and Metal Cleaner/Brightener.  To perform the test we found an old deck plate step from a loaner fire truck that has sat outside for the last 5 years or more.  The step had a large area with water rust stains and was very dull.  We used the cleaner as per the instructions and the results were amazing.  The rust stains were completely removed and the step regained the brightness of the deckplate.  For further information on the Shield Solutions cleaning products, please contact us at info@metalfabfiretrucks.com.

Metalfab recently had three members of the management team complete the TEC – Rising Stars Program.  The Rising Stars Program was offered to employees within member companies.  It was developed to provide a significant development opportunity and to provide a “Mini MBA” or “Management Development” program.  The program include four full day sessions over a three month period.  Allison Quinn, Robin Hatheway, and Ryan Stacey completed the program on Wednesday November 9th.
