To Do: Plant Tour of Steele Rubber


Visitors collage

 

A group of customers from Denmark stopped by our facilities for a tour and to pick up parts for their latest restoration project vehicles. Kasper Sorensen and several friends are in the United States to attend the NASCAR race in Bristol, TN. As part of their visit, they are touring many of the local companies that produce parts for classic and antique cars.

  The group stopped by for a few hours.  As “car guys”, they  took a ton of photos and videos of the manufacturing process. At the end of the tour, Kasper purchased parts for a 1957 Buick Century and a 1969 Chevy Chevelle. It was great meeting our customers and seeing that our friends from Denmark love American cars as much as we do.

We love to give tours of our facilities to our friends and customers so that they can see how we craft all of our parts by hand. Most guests are surprised at the amount of time and handling that goes into each and every part that we make.

This summer, we expect many more tours, including over 100 members of the Buick Club of America, in the area for their national conference and our guests from National Collector Car Appreciation Day on July 13.

If you are in the Denver, NC area and would like to schedule a tour of our weatherstripping plant call 877-455-1161 or email media@steelerubber.com.

We love having guests.
