CMC

Look beneath the surface and you’ll see all that CMC offers — Strength. Integrity. Dependability.
That’s not just a description of our products, but also our people. Sure, CMC steel forms the backbone of our modern infrastructure just about everywhere you look. Our rebar can be found in countless structures, from AT&T Stadium in Dallas to the Pentagon to essential highways, bridges and buildings all over the world. And CMC merchant bar is a vital component in conveyors that move goods, truck trailers that deliver products and Humvees that protect soldiers wherever they’re called to serve.

But at CMC, we also work hard to build something far more important — lasting relationships.
The kind of partnerships that keep our customers returning to us time and again for their most important and challenging projects. Over the years, it’s been said that “steel is just in our blood.” We take that as the highest compliment. To us, it means we care about the products we make, the folks we make them for, and the world we all share — right down to our core.

Profiles in Steel

Sure, CMC steel is renowned for its strength, dependability and innovative qualities. But the same can be said of our people. Like the products they create, these folks have a way of exceeding the highest expectations. Probably because they refuse to deliver anything less than the best.

“Honestly, I initially came to work here because of the money. But the culture is what kept me here. CMC takes care of its employees. It’s been a good opportunity and career for me. I’ve been personally successful, and I put all my kids through school, which was very important to me. Now, after so many years, I really know my way around the place. I hope to stay here until I retire.”

Making it Happen

“The thing I’m most proud of is our focus on safety. Every day that everyone goes home, and no one was hurt, is a successful day for me. Safety really matters to everyone here, from the big guys on down. I like seeing the team working hard and being safe.
 
“When I started at CMC 25 years ago, we had a great environment and it’s only gotten better. We still have challenges, but the good kind, like how to make our customers happier and how to do more for them. Every year, the company grows, but at the same time it finds ways to care more and more about the people working here. And, not just about the employees, but our families as well.”

Making it Happen

“I joined CMC after graduating from technical high school, which allowed me to gain knowledge for my future profession as an electrician so that I could start working immediately after I graduated. The salary I earn right after technical school is good as well as the benefits. The work atmosphere has been friendly ever since I started, everyone helps each other as much as possible. I appreciate that CMC allows time for my interests outside of work – it’s a good work-life balance."

Making it Happen

“We are a family, like brothers and sisters, and we have each other’s back. There’s such a sense of pride working here. We make the steel that goes into the buildings, roads, and bridges around us. It’s rewarding to see our work make a direct impact in our own community.
 
As a civil engineer, coming to a big company like CMC was a big move towards growing my career. Being an estimator, I’m the first step in fabricating rebar for our customers so I get to know about all the projects even before they happen. My goal is to become the lead estimator for my team and have us be the best at what we do. I love it here.”

“I really like the people I work with. CMC is different than most jobs I’ve had. People accept me for who I am. They want me to be successful. When you have troubles, you can always talk to someone and they take time to listen, and to help. It’s like a family. You can share your problems and they’re going to be there for you.
 
“Previously, I worked in the oil fields and CMC was a great job change for me. Compared to what I was doing, driving is much easier, a lot more fun, and I get to meet a lot of people. Driving for CMC is a perfect fit for me.”

“I’ve been fortunate to work at several different CMC locations and I’ve enjoyed working with the people at each one. We’re more like a family, than a workplace. The company cares about more than just production numbers. Safety is definitely important to everyone. The company puts a lot of focus on it.

“We have a tight-knit group in Houston. I like it here and I like what I do. Someday, if I want a change, I know there are lot of other roles at CMC to try, which is nice.”

scrap can be beautiful

Picasso. Matisse. Billy Rodriguez? New artists can come from anywhere. They just need the materials to get started. For over four decades, CMC has proudly sponsored the “Scrap Can Be Beautiful” program at the Booker T. Washington School for the Performing Arts in Dallas. This program provides scrap metal for students to create incredible works of art — like the amazing pieces below!

Wakaree

My Native American roots influenced this piece. “Wakaree” is my tribe’s (the Comanche) word for turtle. The turtle is special to me because my Native grandmother assigned the turtle as my spirit animal from birth.

Bond

I absolutely loved the idea of an ambiguous sculpture that showed the bond between a mother and son, father and daughter, older brother with a younger brother, or any other possible combination of relation.

Intertwined

The scrap can be beautiful program has inspired me to work harder and improve as an artist. This program makes me feel like my art has meaning and that I may have a chance at becoming a professional artist.

Peekwi

This piece comes from my Native American background. “Peekwi” is the Comanche term for fish. The Comanche were very resourceful and used every aspect of the land. This is why I only use discarded, unwanted, metal in my work.

Sunny-Side Up

Sunny-Side Up is very important to me…  I sewed the egg white, which was fun and the first big sewing project I’ve done… it has pretty much defined my senior year, hard work, a little bit tough, a few tears, but totally worth the accomplishment.

Lady Love

I wanted to push myself and my ability to go big. I created a woman, strong and intimidating; just like her material and size!

Scribbled

When I was a freshman in high school I started drawing little monsters from scribbles. At the time of making the piece, I was very interested in exploring my childhood through art, and I thought it would be cool if I used scribbles in a metal project.
