RochesterWorks! has selected Klein Steel Service Inc. as the Employer of the Month for August.
To be named an Employer of the Month a company must be growing, increasing the skills of the local workforce, and offering opportunities to job seekers in our region.
Klein Steel recently partnered with RochesterWorks! to help fill several of their job openings through the On-the-Job Training (OJT) Grant program, which helps businesses offset the cost of hiring and training new employees. RochesterWorks! staff provided recruitment and pre-screening services and referred qualified candidates to the company. As a result of these efforts, Klein Steel hired three individuals for full-time positions. Over the past year the company has also participated in RochesterWorks! job fairs, recruitment events and panel presentations to job seekers.
Founded in 1971, Klein Steel Service Inc. is the region’s premier steel service center with six locations throughout Upstate New York. With over 3,200 line items of stock size carbon, stainless steel, and specialty metals, the company also offers a full range of value-added processing and a fully integrated distribution network that extends the Klein Steel reach throughout the country. Klein Steel is acknowledged as an innovator and industry leader, having been named to the Rochester Top 100 multiple times along with honors as one of New York’s Best Companies to Work For in 2010.
