WAUKESHA - MetalTek International announced Wednesday that its Wisconsin Centrifugal Division in Waukesha has surpassed 2 million man hours worked without a lost-time incident.

This safety record at MetalTek's Waukesha site has extended well over two years, according to the announcement, which the company attributes to each employee's personal dedication to safety awareness and practices.

"Safety is front of mind every day. We start every meeting with a Safety Moment. We dissect all incidents, even those that do not result in an injury. Our safety culture is based on the tenet that all incidents are preventable and we empower our people to be responsible for the safety of themselves and their teammates. We are proud of our record in a hazardous environment, but are also always on our guard to prevent the next incident," said Wisconsin Centrifugal General Manager Eric Skibo.

With thousands of customers in more than 35 countries, MetalTek International is one of the world's leading suppliers of alloy components for high temperature, severe wear, and harsh corrosive environments, and high-compliance industries.
