Women In Steel

Throughout the years, the steel industry has been a male-dominated business. Nonetheless, the steel industry is thriving and offers unlimited opportunities for those willing to work hard – especially women.

We are excited to introduce to you our newest series Women in Steel. In this series, we will be highlighting the great women who work at UPG and our family of brands – telling their story of how they broke into the industry and continue to thrive.
