Kloeckner Metals | Employee Stories: Edward Pimentel
Kloeckner Metals is more than a company, its a community. Watch Edward describe his experience at Kloeckner as he battled cancer:
I set up and run the slitter. It’s a big machine that slits coils into different strip widths for the different size tubing they want to produce. I’ve been here for 30 years. I enjoy the guys here. The job is challenging but not too challenging. There’s been a lot of guys coming through here, and a lot of old timers like me still. For me, it’s like a second family.
I became sick, I had cancer, and a lot of guys pooled in and helped me out, me and my family. I was out for about six months. Couple of guys visited me at the house. They helped me out financially. The company was very nice. They took care of all my, the time off that I needed. It was not a problem for them. When I came back, it was almost like I wasn’t gone. The feeling of family. They took care of me.
