Welcome to the Built in Iowa Podcast!
On today's episode we have Steve Doerfler, CEO and Kyle Bermel, COO of Metalcraft.
Metalcraft is located in Mason City, Iowa and was founded in 1950. Metalcraft manufacturers of ID plates and labels. They help B2B organizations and businesses solve their problem of tracking their assets so they don't get lost. Metalcraft has a 46,000 square foot facility as well as a wholly owned subsidiary, ARK Business Systems located in Clear Lake, Iowa. Metalcraft is an ESOP company which means their members are owners and have equity in the company. Metalcraft has 120 employees and has a revenue range of over $20,000,000.
Metalcraft has shifted their capacity and focus to help manufacturer face shields for the healthcare industry. Kyle started developing prototypes over a week ago and they quickly designed prototypes with their 3D printer. They hope to go full scale this week and produce 10s of thousands of face shields per week. Kyle is very passionate about helping the healthcare industry with their PPE shortage. Metalcraft has received numerous phone calls around the midwest and will begin to ship product this week.
This is a huge kudos to an Iowa based company calling on their patriotic duty to help battle Coronavirus.
