A message from our CEO.....
           Jim Buzzie

Effective January 1, 2019, Michael Harsch was promoted and will be assuming my duties as President of Douglas Steel Fabricating Corporation. I will remain CEO and assist the Management team in an advisory role. In addition, I will continue to serve the industry as President of Great Lakes Fabricators and Erectors Association and also as Management Trustee on the Ironworkers Local 25 benefit funds.
 
I would like to thank the many Owners, Construction Managers and General Contractors I have had the pleasure to work with over the years. Together we have completed many challenging but rewarding projects. Although I have stepped away from the day to day operations, Douglas Steel continues in very capable hands.

Mike has more than 35 years' experience in the steel industry and previously served as the company's Sales Manager, Vice President and Executive Vice President. I am confident in Mike's ability as the next President of Douglas Steel and I'm sure he will continue to carry on our reputation for outstanding performance, safety and customer satisfaction.
