MVS walks to Defeat ALS

On Sunday, September 25th MVS employees came out to support long time employee Mike Jordan and his family in a fight for curing ALS.  Over 100 participants attended raising over $20,000 for the ALS Association.  The ALS Association supports research, assistance for people with ALS, and advocates for government funds.  For more information visit www.als.org.

Thursday June 2 the employees of MVS were treated to the food truck “Smash”.  Smash features creative takes on the classic hamburger and the employees loved it! 

MVS was featured on the local news, supporting our very own, Mike Jordan. Please see the below news article and attached video.

As a company, we are honored to be able to support all of our valued employees.

Missouri Valley Steel employee, Mike Jordan, was diagnosed with ALS nearly five years ago.
Jordan has been with the company for 43 years, and Wednesday, his coworkers found a special way to show their support.

Employees, past and present, lined up outside Missouri Valley Steel Wednesday afternoon to participate in the “Ice Bucket Challenge” to raise awareness for A-L-S. The company pledged to donate $20 for every employee who participated. The grand total came to $1,500 donated to help find a cure for the disease.

“He’s, you know, been here since the ’70s as well as some other employees, who really has influenced me in what I do in my daily life as a job and as a person. So, it comes easy to try and do something good for him when he has such a tough, tough thing handed to him,” said Chad Vortherms, General Manager of Missouri Valley Steel.

The support went beyond the “Ice Bucket Challenge” however. Missouri Valley Steel President and CEO, Tyler Owens, decided to rename the private drive at the Sioux City location, Mike Jordan Way. Jordan’s wife, Sandy, made sure the renaming of the road was a surprise until the unveiling took place Wednesday afternoon.

“I had a hard time talking, you know, they are just so special. For them to think about me this much, and I don’t think I have worked for a year-and-a-half, but for them to think of me this way, it just unleashes an unbelievable amount of emotions. I just love these people,” said Mike Jordan.

Jordan hopes the activities encourage people to raise more awareness for ALS, in hopes of one day finding a cure. Saturday, October 2, an ALS walk will take place across the nation to also help raise awareness.

Last month MVS held it’s annual Cornhole tournament.   The supervisors grilled brats and hamburgers for the employees to show appreciation for their hard work and dedication.  We also had a couple of retired employees come to visit as well.  Mike Jordan and Dave Lindgren joined us for lunch.  The winners of the tournament were Kurt Steig and Clint Sheppard.

Owen Industries is a proud sponsor of the Boys & Girls Clubs! 

Owen Industries latest addition in quality equipment is the new Hexagon Absolute Arm. This 7-axis probe and scanner combo supports quick scans as well as Part=Cad pulled data point using solid models and comparing nominal to actual data in real time.  The PCDMIS software (developed by Hexagon Metrology) fully analyzes a solid model which allows geometric tolerancing to be seamlessly imported and used as a “template” or perfect part to check against what our laser and brakes produce (data could be native to other CAD/CAM software).

This cutting-edge equipment and software allows the PPAP process to be expedited.  PVS can now use a solid model of a potential part and completely dimension from beginning to end in a flat or formed view, add in any key characteristics, and simply scan or pull points with the probe.  We then mesh the compiled data with the theoretical dimensions that are embedded within the solid model.

This technology is light years beyond what most fab shops are using and is one more reason why PVS Metals is the best solution for your steel fab needs!
