About Us

Zalk Josephs strives to be the fabricator of choice for fabricated steel products and services for the construction industry in the greater Midwest. We sustain a competitive advantage through product and process superiority, service, a total quality commitment and a strong Customer and Subcontractor focus.

 

Building Relationships

We regularly challenge ourselves to improve each part of our processes by being creative and flexible in our efforts to meet and exceed both our own and our Customers and Subcontractors expectations.

By tailoring the steel to the requirements of our Erection partners and strict adherence to our Quality Assurance program, we optimize the onsite schedule.

By being honest and fair at all times, we build long-term relationships with customers, subcontractors, and vendors. Over 95% of our work is with repeat customers and subcontractors.

Facility Safety

While Zalk Josephs performs many important functions for our Customers and Vendors, our most important task each and every day is to send our team members home safe and sound. To ensure safety, Zalk Josephs conducts toolbox meetings, regularly scheduled and surprise inspections and audits, invites annual visits from Wisconsin OSHA, pre-job task evaluations, thorough on-boarding and mentorship training, monthly safety meetings with management and shop team members.

It has been 13 years since our last lost time accident!
