A Family Business
What is today Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, Inc., began in 1924 when Fred Ulbrich, Sr., started a scrap metal reselling business in Wallingford, Connecticut. Since then, we’ve evolved through four generations of family leadership to become a global resource for precision metals.
Continuing a Legacy of Generosity
The Ulbrich Family, along with Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, Inc., is proud to continue the humanitarian legacy of Fred Ulbrich, Jr., by supporting youth development through fundraising, engagement and charitable contributions for causes related to education, arts and athletics.
Fred Ulbrich, Jr.
Our philosophy in the early years was the same as it is now: give customers what they need, when they need it, and do your best to exceed their expectations. Our challenge now is to keep the fire of this idea alive in the minds of our employees and into the next generation of management.
As a business and as a family, our philanthropic effort is to invest in the future by promoting organizations that support childhood development, and to encourage employee participation within their communities.
Recently, the Ulbrich Community Outreach Team was formed which provides an avenue for Ulbrich employees to give back in meaningful ways through various volunteer programs and local initiatives.
Ownership means more than just a name at Ulbrich. We’re dedicated to the empowerment and professional growth of our leadership and employees. Through skills training, mentoring, and individual attention, everyone is given the tools and guidance needed to reach their full potential. It’s essential to our business that every employee develops their abilities and earns the opportunity to advance.
From its small beginnings in 1924 to the multinational company it is today, Ulbrich Stainless Steels & Special Metals, Inc., has stuck to its roots as a family owned and operated business. Now in its 4th generation, CEO Chris Ulbrich and sons Jonathan, Mark and Weston carry on the legacy of Fred Ulbrich, Jr., and Sr.
