JUNE 2019 – Wheeling Park High School (WPHS) students were given the opportunity to tour the 60,000-square-foot East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) metal fabrication facility in Triadelphia, West Virginia.
During the tour, students were able to learn more about the daily operations of ECMS and the construction industry. The entire ECMS team was excited to educate the students about the various metal industry career opportunities that await these students upon graduation.
We hope to continue to provide opportunities for students from other local schools to demonstrate the opportunities that await right here in the Ohio Valley.
JUNE 2019 – Roofing and Exterior Products Services (REPS) of Ohio President Bill Spencer and Roofing Sales Manager Duane Zitkovic invited Kalkreuth Roofing and Sheet Metal (KRSM) Project Manager Paul Novak, Superintendent Herschel Morrison, Superintendent Brian Covington, and East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) Sheet Metal Division Manager Ed Gavorcik to a fishing trip on Lake Erie.
The fishing trip was a way for the three companies to network and build better and stronger relationships with each other away from the office. The group was even able to catch their full limit of fish!
Thanks again to Bill and Duane for inviting us to a day out on the lake!

JUNE 2019 – East Coast Metal Systems (ECMS) Administrative Intern Rebekah Horsky and Production Intern Mason Anderson, who are shadowing Production Manager Stephen Khoo, put together a presentation about basic sheet metal flashing for the rest of the ECMS interns to demonstrate what they have learned.
The importance of the presentation was that it served as a learning experience for all interns and prepared them to visit jobsites. At their first jobsite, Field Engineer Kyle Sowinski was able to teach them about our 3D laser scanning capabilities while they experienced it first-hand.
“We strive to provide our interns with the best possible experience throughout their time with us help them learn about the many opportunities that the construction industry has to offer,” said Kyle.
