Join us in celebrating National Truck Drivers Appreciation Week September 12-18, 2021! We’ve been tested to our limits over the last 18 months and this week we celebrate those that have been there through it all, delivering the goods and services needed to keep our country moving forward. From the food served at our tables to the vaccines and emergency supplies that have kept us safe and healthy, truck drivers show up to keep delivering vital supplies to our homes and businesses, even with risk to themselves.
Founded in 1998 by the American Trucking Associations, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week highlights why tucking is critical to our nation’s economy. Thank you to all the hard working men and women drivers who work hard day in and day out! Here are some of the pictures taken during this years celebration across Infra-Metals locations.

Next time you see a trucker give them a shout out of appreciation for all they do!
Corey Swords is currently the Safety Supervisor in our New Boston, OH facility. Corey began his career with Infra-Metals in 2013 as a first shift crane operator. Since New Boston was a brand new facility there were plenty of opportunities to grow. Working previously at a steel fabrication facility, Corey was familiar with how things worked with steel. His shipping and logistics experience helped him to understand the production side of the business.
Career Growth at Infra-Metals
Starting with a 3 month training program working with veterans in the Wallingford, CT facility, afforded him the knowledge necessary to successfully operate machinery in the new service center opening in New Boston, OH. He was excited to work for a “brand new company that he could grow with.” Corey quickly learned how to operate the band saws and spent several months working in processing. Soon after he began working as a loader for the remainder of the year. In 2015 and over the next three years, Corey moved between several shift supervisor positions, ultimately becoming the 1st Shift Warehouse Supervisor.
Personal growth and working with a quality team are what Corey values when showing up everyday. “Putting the right people in the right positions to utilize everyone’s strengths and maximize output is a recipe for success.”
Corey enjoys coordinating with the team in New Boston. “It is very dynamic and every day is different.”
Our services centers work towards monthly goals and it takes every department working together to achieve it. Corey says his environment really makes him feel that he is part of a team and a greater purpose. We are always working to find the most efficient way to deliver our products and services to our customers. That’s the Infra Way. Thank you Corey for all your efforts! Now go get out there and swing those clubs!
