We are the SAFEST, highest quality, lowest cost, most productive and most profitable steel and steel products company in the world. We are committed to this while being cultural and environmental stewards in our communities where we live and work. We are succeeding by working together.
One of Verco's values is the commitment to safety. Safety is in the forefront of our minds when it comes to fabricating, loading and delivering our products to the site. Safety is also foremost when it comes to our products themselves. Our commitment to safety extends to those who use our products, whether they know it or not. Our products typically carry the weight of floors and roofs in non-residential structures and we take great pride in gathering the information necessary to design and fabricate a product that will safely carry the loads intended for the structure.
Along with the other values noted in our mission statement, Verco also has a strong commitment to the communities and the environment where our facilities are located. We strive to be "good neighbors" to those who live and work within our communities, both human and nonhuman.
